Russell McVeagh has returned to back the In-house Team of the Year category
Russell McVeagh has returned to the 2023 NZ Law Awards to seek out the best in-house legal team in the country.
The top-tier firm will once again sponsor the In-house Team of the Year category, which last year was won by the Fonterra Co-operative Group Legal Team.
“We're proud to be supporting this industry award which celebrates the top in-house legal teams in Aotearoa New Zealand”, the firm said. “These teams work on some of the most significant matters, transactions and issues in our country which have helped to shape the business landscape, and we are extremely grateful to have worked alongside a number of these incredible teams”.
NZ Lawyer opened the window for nominations to this year’s awards last week. The awards recognise the leading lawyers, law firms, in-house teams and mediators in New Zealand.
Nominations can be made across 25 categories. The Excellence Awardees will be revealed on 31 August, after which a panel of independent judges will determine the overall winners.
“LexisNexis is committed in advocating and celebrating excellence in the legal industry. The New Zealand Law Awards is the most esteemed and anticipated event in the New Zealand legal calendar, recognizing outstanding achievement, innovation, and exceptional leadership across various practice areas and sectors”, said Aya Riola, general manager – NZ for event partner LexisNexis.
This year’s NZ Law Awards ceremony will be held at the Cordis Auckland on 23 November. The black-tie gala will be hosted by The Nutters Club’s Mike King.
The nominations period for the 2023 NZ Law Awards will run until 7 July. Those looking to nominate can do so online; you can submit nominations for as many categories as you like.
NZ Lawyer would like to extend special thanks to event partner LexisNexis, as well as to event sponsors Resolution Institute, Fluid Recruitment, James & Wells, Russell McVeagh and Artemis Executive Recruitment, for supporting this event and the recognition of legal excellence.
