There is still time for readers to submit nominations for Latin Lawyer Individual Awards.
The nomination period runs until Monday 19 November.
We are inviting firms to submit nominations for awards recognising the achievements of leading lawyers from across Latin America, as well as important pro bono and diversity initiatives, all of which will be presented at our annual charity awards ceremony next year.
Every year, we recognise the achievements of practitioners in areas such as law firm and practice group leadership, diversity and pro bono at our awards ceremony, which will take place in São Paulo early next year and is held in aid of pro bono clearing houses from across Latin America.
To put forward an individual or initiative for consideration for any of the awards described below, simply click on the category to be taken to the relevant survey.
We will present awards for the following:
Law Firm Leader of the Year Award, recognising a managing partner displaying exceptional leadership skills and strategic vision.
Specialist Law Firm Leader of the Year Award, recognising the leader of a boutique firm that demonstrates excellence in its field.
Lifetime Achievement Award, applauding lawyers who over the course of their careers have made an outstanding contribution to the practice of law in Latin America.
International Lawyer of the Year Award, in recognition of a lawyer from an international firm with a strong presence in Latin America who has built a leading profile through their work in the region.
We will also give awards to pro bono and diversity initiatives:
Diversity Initiative of the Year Award, recognising innovative efforts to promote diversity and equal opportunity.
Pro Bono Project of the Year Award, in recognition of a pro bono case or initiative that brings access to justice to those who don’t have the means to pay for it. For example, by providing free legal services to the poor or to the organisations that assist them, or working on matters of public interest on a pro bono basis.
Pro Bono Law Firm of the Year Award, in recognition of a law firm’s outstanding commitment to building an institutional pro bono practice.
The Law Firm Leader and Specialist Law Firm Leader Awards are presented to leaders of law firms in Latin America practising local law. Each year, we present two Lifetime Achievement Awards to private practice practitioners in Latin America or from the region’s international legal community. Anyone can make nominations for the diversity initiative and pro bono project awards, providing there is a strong link to Latin America and lawyers practising local law in the region are involved. The Pro Bono Law Firm of the Year Award will be presented to a law firm in Latin America practising local law.
We accept self nominations. Firms can also nominate each other. Each nominee can make one nomination per category.
We will announce the winners in our daily news briefing in January. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The nomination period for our Deal of the Year Awards will open in December. Find out more at our website’s awards page.
