The Excellence Awardees for the Canadian Law Awards in the Case, In-House, Firm and Legal Profession categories have now been announced.
Hundreds of submissions from firms and legal departments across Canada were received during the recent nomination phase. Excellence Awardees were determined via a rigorous, expert-informed process. The Canadian Law Awards editorial and research teams reviewed all the submissions and consulted third-party information to identify each category’s standouts. These successful submissions will be sent to the extensive independent external judging panel which will score the nominations against the criteria. Through an aggregation of judges’ scoring, a Gold Winner will be chosen from each category, a process which is independently verified through an audit by PwC.
On April 2, the Excellence Awardees for the Female Trailblazer category will be announced.
Following that, on April 16, the Excellence Awardees for all Deal Award categories will be announced.
