Welcome to The Lawyer Awards 2013 in association with Travelers
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.
Every year we are deluged with hundreds of entries, and I am sure that again this year we at The Lawyer will be spending 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.
The Lawyer Awards 2013 is now closed for entries; please click here to view the shortlist. The winner will be revealed during the Awards Ceremony itself on Tuesday 25th June 2013.
For the first time this year, we would like to showcase further the knowledge and expertise shared by the Awards entrants; we will be inviting representatives of a selection of shortlisted firms and individuals to take part in one of a series of category-specific roundtables where key issues will be debated. More information will be available in Spring 2013 when the shortlists are announced.
As in past years there is no fee to take part; 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. Please support them generously.
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 receiving your entries.
