The Lawyer Awards takes place in November this year, with scores of firms, in-house teams and chambers making the shortlist.
The winners will be announced in our virtual awards ceremony, taking place on Tuesday 2 November.
Last year saw Keystone win the top prize, as the coronavirus pandemic vindicated the firm’s non-traditional and remote working model in spades.
Latham & Watkins was meanwhile named ‘City firm of the year’; a further nomination this time around means it could scoop the gong once again.
Patrick Green QC of Henderson Chambers won ‘Barrister of the year’ after securing victory for 550 sub-postmasters in the Post Office group litigation. This year’s shortlist is just as impressive, with 6KBW’s Sasha Wass QC nominated after a high-profile win for The Sun against Johnny Depp, and Devereux Chambers’ Colin Edelman QC instructed by the Financial Conduct Authority in its landmark test case over Covid losses.
For the second year running, our charity partner is The Free Representation Unit, which acts for hundreds of clients in social security and employment tribunals.
