1 September – 5 October 2020


Today's Award: Law Firm of the Year

The annual Legal Business Awards celebrate the very best in the legal profession. Our 2020 awards were originally scheduled to take place in March and this was moved to September in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Following advice from the World Health Organization and local health departments, our usual gala evening at Grosvenor House will not be possible this year. However, we are committed to acknowledging the achievements of our 2020 winners virtually.

We are making September a month dedicated to the Legal Business Awards. Starting 1 September, each day we will unveil all the nominees, the highly commended entrant and the winner for an individual award on our website, across social media and in a mailout to all our newsletter subscribers. We will begin with the practice area awards, moving through the in-house and merit categories, culminating with us revealing our 2020 Law Firm of the Year on 5 October. This means we will spread our awards over 25 days, giving greater focus than usual on celebrating the work of the best lawyers in the business.

While we cannot gather in person, we look forward to virtually celebrating the work of the best lawyers in the industry from 1st September.
