An impressive 450 nominations were submitted, giving The Lawyer’s judges and reporters a tough challenge to whittle down the entries.
Among the 27 awards categories were some new ones this year: “Funds Team of the Year”, “Client Partner of the Year” and “Ethical Initiative of the Year”.
The detailed shortlists page also includes last year’s winners and the names of the judging panel.
Winners will be announced at a ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on June 25 2013.
