The British Legal Awards are the leading awards for the UK's thriving business law community acting as a showcase for the achievements of one of the country's most successful sectors. Hosted by Legal Week in association with The City of London Law Society, this glittering awards ceremony is attended by 1,000 lawyers, representing the cream of the UK's legal community.enter-nn


The legal sector contributes more than £20bn to the UK economy, £4bn of which is derived from exports. The 27 categories have been carefully chosen to reflect the variety of work undertaken by business lawyers working at law firms and in company legal departments. Key awards include The City of London Lifetime Achievement Award, Law Firm of the Year, General Counsel of the Year, Editor's Award: Law Firm Leader of the Year and the hotly contested Law Firm Innovation Award. There are eight practice awards covering M&A, banking, litigation, regulation, property, commercial, TMT and private client and a series of awards designed to reflect the wider contribution law firms and legal department make to the community, including Diversity Initiative of the Year and CSR Initiative of the Year.


A major feature of these awards is the credibility of the judging process as the winners are decided by an independent judging panel, chaired by Alasdair Douglas, chairman of the City of London Law Society. The panel is made up of general counsel and other senior members of the legal community, including several former law firm managing partners. This year's ceremony will take place at Old Billingsgate Market on 25 November.
