The specialist law firm of the year award will be given to a firm of any size that focuses exclusively, or predominantly, on one practice area or sector.
The awards are judging performance broadly from 1 November 2019 to present-day; this means that the bulk of work and any achievements listed within the entry must have been carried out within this time period (please note it is not essential that a project or case has both launched and closed within this time period).
Winning firms will be able to demonstrate that they have had an exceptional year, managing the pressures of the economic environment while maintaining high levels of client service. Firms should be able to show that they have developed or progressed their strategic vision during the year – this may be through lateral recruitment or acquisitions, the opening of new offices or the forging of new alliances. Evidence of programmes that recognise diversity, social mobility and employee retention is encouraged.
