The legal environment is a fast paced and exciting market, with increased competition and technological advancements providing a raft of challenges for many legal practices as the industry always strives to evolve.
Political and economic issues have also affected the markets globally, resulting in lawyers continuously having to adapt in an industry of ever evolving legislation and regulation. In addition, as the market becomes increasingly global the rise in cross-border issues means legal professionals are having to constantly update their existing skills and acquire new ones.
As a result of this constantly fluctuating sector, we look to highlight those who work effortlessly to overcome these obstacles with the Legal Awards. This programme has been running for over five years now and acts as the ultimate guide to the very best that the legal industry has to offer.
Nominated by clients, peers and fellow professionals; voted for by our subscribers and agreed by our industry experts, the Legal Awards provide a comprehensive go-to resource for those seeking the truly outstanding legal professionals from around the world, who go the extra mile to get the job done in style.
Nominees are gained via our online nomination form from magazine subscribers, online visitors, social media following, clients and our wider circulation.
