wbl-logo-americas-600.jpg

The Women in Business Law Awards is excited to present its shortlist for the 2021 Americas Awards.

The Women in Business Law Awards has released the full list of finalists for its 2021 Americas awards.

The awards bring together the whole of the Americas to recognize the leading women lawyers on both continents and celebrate the law firms that have launched impressive initiatives to promote diversity and women in the practice of law.

Winners will be announced on June 10 2021.

A preview of the practice area and Rising Star finalists can be found below, but the full list of the finalists for all is available on the awards website. The Women in Business Law Awards research team carefully selected each finalist after a thorough research period which included an analysis of direct submissions, followed by interviews with law firms and in-house teams, client feedback, and much deliberation

Individual practitioners and Rising Stars are judged no only on the complexity of the work the nominees completed in 2020, but also on their advocacy, influence, and thought leadership in relation to the promotion of women in the practice of law and within their practice area specialisms

Law firm initiatives are recognised across various categories, including for gender diversity and work-life balance.

All of the work accepted for shortlisting closed during the research period, which was from January 1 to December 31 2020. The awards do not recognise cases, deals, or transactions completed outside of the research period.

If you have any questions regarding our research process, please contact John Harrison: john.harrison@legalmediagroup.com

The Women in Business Law Awards will be announcing the winners on June 10 through a virtual awards presentation, followed up with write ups and analysis of all of the most significant work.
