The countdown to the Indian Legal Awards, instituted by Legal Era Magazine, has begun, and the deadline for submission of entries is 30th NOVEMBER, 2017.
The seventh edition of the Awards, to be held in NEW DELHI in March 2018, will keep up the tradition of recognizing finesse, innovation and achievements of legalpractitioners, in-house teams and law firms.
The Awards are among the most coveted among the legal fraternity and not without reason. Not only are the award categories curated to reflect the complex and challenging work undertaken by lawyers, legal departments and law firms, selection is based on factors such as service type and range, business type and operation, and individual/team expertise, among others. Apart from the fact that merit alone decides who stands out, the selection process itself is hugely credible, with winners being decided by an independent jury comprising the most distinguished names in business. Another plus is that the Awards recognize both established names as well as rising stars in industry. The Awards themselves span practice areas such as banking, insurance, media and entertainment, pharmaceuticals, IT, telecommunication and e-commerce. Some of the trailblazing Indian Legal Awards include: Lifetime Achievement, Legal Icon of the Year, Star General Counsel of the Year (Male and Female), and Star Young Achiever (Law Firm and In-house).
This year’s Awards are unlike all previous editions in that they will be held at the end of our ambitious two-day event, the Legal Era GENNEXT COUNSEL CONGRESS 2018, which will see a host of law firm heads and GCs get together to explore various issues driving innovation, disruption and change in the legal profession.
Based on the theme, LIBERALISATION OF THE LEGAL SECTOR - FOREIGN LAW FIRM ENTRY IN THE INDIAN MARKET - NEW FUTURE, the Congress will witness insightful and interactive sessions on geopolitics and business, M&A, investment, privacy and big data, IP innovation and assets, asset recovery, anti-corruption legislation and so on.
