The Basics

Individuals are judged not only on the complexity of the work the nominees completed in 2023, 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 and involvement in ESG initiatives.

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 2023. The awards do not recognise cases, deals, or transactions completed outside of the research period.

The Women in Business Law Awards is supported by ITR, but run independently from ITR World Tax research.
