The Lawyer European Awards

The Lawyer European Awards were the first initiative of their kind to reward and celebrate excellence across the European legal market. The Awards are open to independent law firms headquartered in Europe and global firms working within the European market.

Winning firms are not necessarily those which have topped deal tables. Past awards have been given 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.

Date: 9 March 2016

Venue: Hilton Bankside, London

The Lawyer Awards

The Lawyer Awards celebrate excellence across private practice, the public sector, commerce and industry, and the Bar. It is unquestionably the biggest night of the year for the legal profession.

The Lawyer was the first legal magazine to put together a senior advisory judging panel taken from the great and the good in City institutions and the media. The combination of this and The Lawyer’s own research has made these Awards the most comprehensive and incisive reflection of the commercial legal market. It’s no wonder that they are the most sought after trophies in the law.

Managing Risk and Mitigating Litigation

Managing Risk and Mitigating Litigation is the only event where in-house litigators and heads of risk come together to share strategies on preventing and managing commercial disputes.

Preventing litigation starts with assessing your litigation risks and integrating these risks into your strategy. When talking about risks, one’s ability to anticipate and prepare for future challenges, trends, threats and opportunities can become of crucial importance. Aside from the focus on risk, the one day event also tackles issues such as dealing with cross border investigations, multi-jurisdictional litigation, dispute resolution strategies and measures for keeping litigation costs down.
