Winning firms will be able to demonstrate that they have had an exceptional year in Continental Europe, managing the pressures of the economic environment while maintaining high levels of client service. The office or offices nominated should be generating work for themselves as well as referring work to other offices in the firm’s network.

Just securing the largest deals will not be sufficient to win the award. Judges will be looking for firms that have won new clients or carried out an innovative transaction or case as well as those that have picked up instructions on their region’s biggest deals.

Firms should be also able to show that they have developed or progressed their strategic vision for the European region during the year – this may be through strategic recruitment or acquisitions, the opening of new offices or the forging of new alliances.

Please provide as much evidence as possible of achievements during the year, including financial performance, examples of deals or cases and new initiatives.

Remember to focus your entry on your Continental European capabilities. The entry need not focus on a single office but can examine your offering across the region.
