Those who wish to throw their names in the hat have only until 10 February
As January draws to a close, the window for nominations to the 2023 Australasian Law Awards is narrowing.
Those who wish to throw their names in the hat for Australia’s most prestigious legal awards ceremony have only until 10 February to send in their submissions.
“Australian lawyers are so well regarded globally. We have a level of straight talking and accessibility that others often don’t,” said Lucinda Browne, senior legal counsel at Brighte Capital, in relation to last year’s awards. “I believe this will serve the current legal talent well as the legal industry expands and more demands are placed on lawyers to understand commercial realities and risks and take these into account when communicating accessibly to their stakeholders.”
Browne, who was a judge in the 2022 iteration of the awards, returns to the judging panel this year.
At this year’s ceremony, winners from a whopping 32 categories will be recognised. The awards highlight the top legal professionals, firms and in-house teams in Australia and New Zealand; they will also look into the industry’s leading deal work, legal service providers, arbitrators and mediators.
Excellent initiatives catering to employee health and wellbeing as well as tech and innovation will also be celebrated.
The awards ceremony will be held as a black-tie gala on 25 May at the Fullerton Hotel in Sydney. Australasian Lawyer will revealed the list of Excellence Awardees on its website near the end of March.
Nominations may be submitted here.
Resolution Institute is one of the sponsors of the 2023 Australasian Law Awards.
