The essentials

All professional accomplishments (deals and cases) attached to individual awards must have been completed in 2021, the awards review period, to be eligible for consideration. 

Professional accomplishments that did not close by December 31 2021 will not be considered. 

Individual awards are weighted equally between a practitioner’s professional accomplishments and their advocacy, influence, and thought leadership. 

To be given consideration as a rising star, candidates must have no more than 15 years’ professional experience, be under 40 years old, and be acting at partner level. Ideal candidates would be either a recently raised partner, senior associate or of counsel.  

All other nominees should be submitted for their practice area specialism.  

For the firm award categories, initiatives that started prior to 2021 that are still active will be considered based on the merit of the work that was handled during the 12-month review period. 

If the initiative was not active in 2021, it will not be given consideration for the awards. 

Good luck to all!
