Nomination process for 2021

Criteria for inclusion

Is there someone you think should be in the Hot 100 next year?
We welcome nominations from across the legal profession.

  • They must be a qualified lawyer

  • They must be UK-based

  • They can be from private practice, in-house or the Bar

  • They must have done something of significance during 2020 (as the Hot 100 is not a ‘lifetime achievement’ award but an acknowledgement of the excellent work that is being done right now)

  • They must have star quality (ie not just a lovely supervisor or someone who has led on a big deal as there are hundreds of those lawyers across the country). Good nominations will bring out what makes them so special.


The window for 2021 nominations will open in May 2020 and the deadline for nominations will be 23.59 on 30 September 2020. There will be no extensions to this deadline.

How to submit

Details of how to submit a nomination will appear here once the window has opened in May.
