Lexology, in association with the Association of Corporate Counsel, have now been honouring the best in-house lawyers worldwide for a decade. Considered one of the most prestigious accolades available to in-house lawyers, the Global Counsel Awards represent a true benchmark for success in the profession.

Nominations are accepted from both in-house and private practice, as well as from internal clients instructing lawyers within their businesses. No candidate can make the shortlist without multiple nominations and awards are presented only in categories for which more than 200 nominations are received within that particular area. While based on thorough and coherent research, the results remain the subjective views of the Global Counsel Awards team and the advisory board.
