The European Awards 2014 attracted an increased number of entries from across Europe, with firms of all sizes competing across the 26 categories.
The winners represented a true cross-section of Europe’s legal market, from specialist boutiques through to some of the continent’s biggest firms. What they all had in common was a commitment to excellence across the board and a clear strategic vision. Find out what made the winning firms stand out here.
Entries will open later this year for the European Awards 2015, and we anticipate offering the same categories as this year. Regional categories will be open to independent firms, while our four cross-border transactional categories will also be open to any firm practising in Continental Europe.
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.
We encourage smaller firms from smaller markets to enter - winners are by no means based on the size of their firm. Every entry is scrutinised by the same criteria and it's quality not quantity, that win the top prizes.
Best of luck to all entrants.
