Today, The Lawyer unveils its Hot 100 2023, celebrating the successes of those working within the industry over the past 12 months.
Featuring the crème de la crème of the legal world, The Lawyer Hot 100 highlights this year’s dealmakers, the litigators who are riding high after trial glory and the most sought-after names in the world of competition, investigations and construction.
The list also features over 20 in-house lawyers, who have been guiding their executive teams through complicated reorganisations and tricky regulatory quandaries, as well as transforming how companies conduct their business.
Barristers from across the profession are lauded for their impressive advocacy in high-profile litigation, working across a range of challenging issues such as women’s rights, financial crime and online safety.
Good leadership is a prized commodity in unpredictable times, with The Lawyer’s Hot 100 further highlighting incoming and existing managing partners who are poised to drive their firm onto the next stage.
Of particular mention this year are those practitioners working in the specialist yet critical world of environmental law. Concerns over ESG is just a small part of the equation; members of the Hot 100 are spearheading initiatives in renewable energy, campaigning for environmental justice and taking on the UK Government over its implementation of net zero strategies.
