White Legal Business Awards Logo


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, dedicating our online presence to covering the 2020 Awards and our GC Powerlist UK throughout September.

Please look out for information here and on social media. While we cannot gather together, we will deliver the awards to you in the most accessible and user-friendly format to properly celebrate the work of the best lawyers in the industry. And we look forward to welcoming you all in person to our 2021 awards.
