A gala evening that will recognize Canada’s leading law firms, in-house legal teams, individuals, and landmark deals over the past year.
Presented by Lexpert, and supported by Canadian Lawyer and InHouse, the awards will recognize excellence among the best and brightest lawyers, firms, and legal teams in Canada.
Over 30 award categories are open for nominations from local and international law firms, lawyers, and in-house legal teams. All nominations will be reviewed by an independent judging panel of leading lawyers.
Among the categories will be Canadian Deal of the Year, Commercial Litigation Team of the Year, the Law Department Innovation Award, Woman of the Year, and Managing Partner of the Year.
Finalists will be announced in Lexpert, Canadian Lawyer, and InHouse in March of 2020.
Winners will be revealed during the black-tie gala on October 6 at the Fairmont Royal York in Toronto. Those winners will receive special feature coverage in the Canadian Law Awards Lexpert Special Edition.
The event carries on the great tradition of Lexpert and Canadian Lawyer awards, including the Lexpert Zenith Awards and the Canadian Lawyer InHouse Innovatio Awards. The event is organized by Key Media, publishers of Lexpert, who present a similar awards gala in Australasia. That event brings together hundreds of leading lawyers to recognize the best in the profession across Australia and New Zealand.
Nominations close on February 4, 2020. The full list of categories is available here.
