Managing IP is proud to support the inaugural year of the Legal Benchmarking Group DEI Awards for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

In a significant stride towards celebrating diversity, fostering inclusivity and recognising excellence in the legal industry, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our Legal Benchmarking Group DEI Awards and Accreditation.

This initiative seeks to celebrate the outstanding efforts of legal professionals who champion diversity, equity, and inclusion, while also providing a prestigious accreditation for those committed to creating more inclusive work environments making them better positioned to meet the evolving needs of their clients. This recognition underscores a firm's commitment to inclusive values and social responsibility.

Participation in these awards creates an opportunity for law firms to be recognised as DEI leaders in the legal industry, setting an example for others to follow.

Coming off the success of the market leading Women in Business Law Awards, the Legal Benchmarking Group DEI Awards aim to recognise the efforts and achievements of legal and professional services firms across the Americas and EMEA.

Law firms and in-house teams are invited to make written nominations at the links below detailing their various DEI initiatives, programmes, policies, and practices. A dedicated research team will review the written nominations and conduct interviews with leading firms and practitioners from across the relevant region.

Why participate in the LMG Legal DEI Awards?

  1. Showcase Your Commitment: Demonstrate your law firm's dedication to diversity, equity, and inclusion by highlighting initiatives, programs, and success stories.

  2. Gain Industry Recognition: Being recognized with a Legal Benchmarking Group DEI Award will not only elevate your firm's reputation with in-house counsel and law school students but also position you as a leader in promoting diversity within the legal community.

  3. Networking Opportunities: Connect with like-minded professionals and firms from different regions at the awards gala, fostering valuable relationships within the legal industry.
