The nominations window for the NZ Law Awards opened this week, and in line with its longstanding tradition, aims to recognise the best in New Zealand’s legal profession.

The awards will honour the achievements of individuals, law firms, in-house teams and mediators in New Zealand across 26 categories. They will also highlight standout deal work and crucial initiatives implemented by organisations to spotlight diversity and inclusion.

Excellence Awardees will be announced on 5 September. A panel of independent expert judges will then determine those who deserve to raise the standards of victory.

Comedy star Urzila Carlson will be the host of the ceremony to be held at Auckland’s Viaduct Events Centre on 28 November. Members of the legal profession are invited to glam up in their best black-tie outfits.

The submissions period for nominations will end on 12 July. Those looking to put forward names 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 LEAP Legal Software, as well as to event sponsors LexisNexis, Chisholm Clarke, Realaml, Robert Walters, Fluid Legal Recruitment, James & Wells, Russell McVeagh, Baker Tilly Staples Rodway, and Artemis Executive Recruitment for supporting this event and the recognition of legal excellence.
