The Lawyer has unveiled a stellar cast of judges for The Lawyer Awards, comprising some of the biggest names in City, commercial and academic life. Co-chairing the panel are Ian Gray, director at Candover and The Lawyer editor Catrin Griffiths.
Gray said: "The awards honour the elite of the legal profession and I'm delighted to be involved. The quality of the entries has been staggering."
Catrin Griffiths said: "The Lawyer Awards attracts more entries and media interest than any other ceremony in the profession. We're thrilled to have assembled such an extraordinary list of judges."
The entries have already raised over £81,000 for nominated charities ChildHope and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
