The 12th annual Excellence Awards promise to be the biggest and most impressive yet, taking place at a striking new venue – Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane, London.

Celebrating excellence across the profession is what we do; from smaller firms, to the big city players and in-house teams - and everyone in between. Exceptional individuals are also recognised, with several categories for the brightest and best.

Every year offers a snapshot of the inspirational and innovative work that you do every day.

Enter the 2018 awards for your chance to be recognised and celebrate your successes.

This year, there is a new individual award for Excellence in Practice Management. This award celebrates excellence and outstanding achievement in practice management. Law firms often operate in a highly competitive and volatile business environment, which creates risks but also huge opportunities to thrive and develop. We are looking for individuals who help their firm to: drive excellence in business management, focus on continuous improvement, demonstrate sound financial planning and risk management principles, encourage technological innovation around data and cyber challenges as well as innovative learning and development strategies, creative approaches to future-proofing and collaborative working to reduce the regulatory burden.

Other awards relating to practice management disciplines include:

  • Excellence in Business Development
  • Excellence in Client Service
  • Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion
  • Excellence in Learning and Development
  • Excellence in Marketing and Communications
  • Excellence in Technology and Innovation

There are also three new Law Firm of the Year awards this year, for small (2-4-partner), medium (5-20-partner), and large (21+-partner) firms.

Nominations close on 25 May 2018, and the awards ceremony will take place on 17 October.
