Among the wealth of content at this September’s Business Leadership Summit currently filed under the heading “don’t miss”, few will be more pertinent to many people than the session on new career paths in the legal market.
On Tuesday this week I had the immense pleasure of spending the day with around a dozen of the UK’s leading in-house lawyers. The reason? To thrash out and forensically analyse and pick apart the entries for this September’s Business Leadership awards and, ultimately, come up with not only the shortlist but also the winners.
“Taxi for business services stars, taxi for business services stars…”. From 15 June the sunny streets of central London will be graced by a vision of loveliness in the dramatically festooned form of Business Leadership taxis
There is now just over a week to go until the entry period for this year’s Business Leadership awards closes. We have had a phenomenal response, with already more entries across a broader range of legal services providers than ever before.
Now that May is here the deadline for entering this year’s The Lawyer Business Leadership awards is rapidly approaching. Don’t miss out on your chance for the recognition your firm, business services teams or stellar individuals deserve.
