The essentials

All professional accomplishments to be taken into consideration (deals and cases) for the individual awards must have closed in 2021 to be included in the research. Any professional accomplishments to have not concluded by 31 December 2021 will not be given consideration. Individual awards are weighted equally regarding each practitioner’s professional accomplishments and their advocacy, influence, and thought leadership.

To be given consideration as a Rising Star, the individual practitioner should have no more than fifteen years’ professional experience, be under forty 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.

Firm initiatives that started in previous years and are ongoing may be included for any of the firm award categories. If the initiative was not active in 2021, it will not be given consideration for the awards.

Good luck to all!
