Rising Stars Awards 2021: announcement and update

rs-americas-asia-europe-border.jpg

The Rising Stars Awards is pleased to announce that the programme will be going forward with the 2021 Awards.

The Rising Stars Awards, the preeminent legal industry recognition programme for emerging leaders will be going forward in 2021, with some differences.

As previous attendees and winners will attest, the highlight and central aspect to the Rising Stars Awards is to gather the emerging leaders from firms across the region and provide for them a venue to network and celebrate the accomplishments of their peers. Unfortunately, due to present restrictions on travel within each of the regions, it is not suitable to host a live awards ceremony. We will not allow this to prevent us from recognising the accomplishments arising from the partners of tomorrow. The Rising Stars Awards will put forward a winners list of key emerging talent as the Rising Stars for 2021.

For this reason, the research cycle for the Rising Stars Awards will not include a call for submissions this year. Instead we will be relying upon our teams’ research and information from our supporting legal titles and other awards program[me]s.

Winners announcements:

Americas on September 2nd

Europe on September 9th

Asia-Pacific on September 16th

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you all as soon as we can.

About the awards
