We are delighted to announce that entries are now open for The Lawyer European Awards 2015.

The Awards celebrate excellent work within the European legal market – firms from across Continental Europe, the UK and beyond can enter selected categories. Click here to find out more.


  • We have simplified the criteria and information required where possible to make it as easy as we can for you to submit a winning entry.
  • Our four transactional categories have been renamed to focus on a deal or case, allowing integrated teams from more than one firm to make a submission.
  • We have introduced a new nominations category designed to recognise those firms which truly stand out as European referral partners – for their ability to build strong relationships with their peers in other jurisdictions and create a truly integrated service to clients.

Winning firms will not necessarily be those which have topped deal tables. Last year’s awards went to a range of practices, from small corporate boutiques to some of Europe’s biggest firms. What they all had in common was a commitment to excellence across the board and a clear strategic vision. Every entry is scrutinised by the same criteria and it's quality not quantity, that wins the top prizes.

A panel of judges, including managing partners at private practice firms and in-house counsel at multinational companies, will once again be judging the awards.

Once again the awards will be held in London allowing firms greater opportunities for networking.

The knowledge and expertise shared by the awards entrants will be showcased in an associated day-time event – more details to follow in due course!

Best of luck to all entrants.
