Welcome to The Lawyer Awards 2013 in association with Travelers
The website for the 2014 Awards will be launched within the next couple of weeks. The 2014 Awards are going to be held on Wednesday 25th June 2014 at the Grosvenor House Hotel; please click here to view the 2013 winners.
The Lawyer Awards is about the celebration of excellence in the profession across private practice, the public sector, commerce and industry, and the Bar. It is unquestionably the biggest night of the year for the legal profession.
This year's awards took place on Tuesday 25th June at the Grosvenor House Hotel; please click here to view the online Awards supplement, including information on the winning entries and photos of the night.

Every year we are deluged with hundreds of entries, and again this year we at The Lawyer spent a greater part of the spring sifting through them. But we don’t just depend on the entries we are sent. The Lawyer editorial team conducts a huge research process, interviewing hundreds of lawyers and their clients to supplement the nominations.
The Lawyer was the first legal magazine to put together a senior advisory judging panel taken from the great and the good in City institutions and the media. The combination of this and The Lawyer’s own research has made these Awards the most comprehensive and incisive reflection of the commercial legal market. It’s no wonder that they are the most sought after trophies in the law.
For the first time this year, we chose to showcase further the knowledge and expertise shared by the Awards entrants; representatives of a selection of shortlisted firms and individuals were invited to take part in one of a series of category-specific roundtables where key issues were debated.
As in past years there was no fee to take part in the Awards; all we ask is that your entry be accompanied by a donation to our chosen charities Alzheimer’s Society and Samaritans. These charities were picked after a readers’ poll run on the Lawyer.com website in November 2010. Through entries alone this year we raised over £72,000 - thank you for your support.
It only remains for us to thank all of our award sponsors, particularly our co-sponsor for the ninth year running, Travelers. We look forward to seeing you next year.
