BEFORE YOU BEGIN…
Carefully read through the category criteria to establish which award(s) you are eligible to enter.
As a general rule:
- Independent European firms headquartered in a continental European country: can enter all categories (except Global firm of the year in Europe).
- European offices of UK or US headquartered firms: can enter the transactional categories only.
- UK or US offices: can enter the Global firm of the year in Europe category only.
- In-house teams: can enter Global in-house team of the year. Nominations from private practice are also welcome.
Take note of the information set out in the Rules & Guidelines for entry; these will help you ensure that your entry follows the instructions and is therefore not penalised by the judges.
Make sure you have taken note of each section of the entry form; while it is at your discretion which section you add the most weight to, it is important that you address each point to some extent.
