Groups of between 5 and 10 law firms have been nominated in a range of practice area and insustry sector categories.
In addition, there are individual awards for leading trial lawyers and white collar litigators.
The event itself takes place in the palatial surroundings of Cipriani, a former bank vault, now restaurant, in Midtown Manhattan, on Thursday, May 23 2013.
For a taster, here is a video clip of last year’s event.
According to Chambers:
“The Awards honour outstanding firms on the basis of research carried out for Chambers USA. These awards reflect a law firm’s pre-eminence in key practice areas. They also reflect notable achievements over the past 12 months including outstanding work, impressive strategic growth and excellence in client service.”
The annual Chambers USA directory is usually released at or shortly after the awards event.
