IFLR is delighted to announce the launch of the research for the 2020 Asia-Pacific, Europe and Americas awards.

Invites have been sent out to law firms and in-house teams that have been in touch with IFLR or participated in past awards. The nomination process, however, is open to everyone.

For any questions about the awards or the research that IFLR undertakes please contact James Wilson at james.wilson@legalmediagroup.com. Table bookings for the ceremonies are also now open, and you can book your table by getting in touch here.

All the forms, deadlines and criteria for the three awards can be found here.

Don’t miss out

Each of the three awards have similar nomination processes that invite firms to make submissions in deal of the year, team of the year and national law firm of the year categories.

IFLR will also present a number of individual awards to rising stars and in-house counsel from across the regions, and recognise individual lawyers for the impact they have had on the regulatory landscape and their achievements over a lifetime in law.

IFLR focuses exclusively on legal innovation in cross-border deal-making. We're not interested in the size and value of deals, media attention or prestige.

Each of the deal, team and firm awards are exclusively based on transactions that were fully completed during 2019.

There is no cost to submitting nominations to any of the awards.

IFLR’s research also draws from the coverage of the markets conducted by its journalists over the course of the year. However, direct nominations are the surest way to highlight work.

Full details on the criteria for each of the award can be found in the annual summary documents.

The deadlines for nominations are as follows:

  • Asia-Pacific: November 19 2019
  • Europe: November 29 2019
  • Americas: January 10 2020

The award ceremonies:  

  • Asia-Pacific: March 5 2020, Island Shangri-la, Hong Kong SAR
  • Europe: April 23 2020, The Biltmore, London
  • Americas: May 14 2020, Essex House, New York

The winners and shortlisted nominees from all of IFLR’s 2019 awards can also be found here, along with the photos of each of the ceremonies and each book of the night, which features detailed writeups on all deals and teams.
