Nominations for the 12th annual New Zealand Law Awards reached a new record this year following another strong response from the industry.
The majority of categories received more entries compared to 2015, including a significant increase in the number of nominations across all the deal categories. Several new awards were also introduced this year including two for Deal Team of the Year split by firm size, providing more opportunity for firms and lawyers to gain recognition.
The research process to determine this year’s finalists is currently underway. All finalists will be announced in the September issue of NZ Lawyer magazine as well as the official event website on Monday 19 September. Successful finalists will be notified prior to this.
