About the Awards

IFLR's awards focus on legal innovation, with a particular eye on innovation in cross-border transactions. Achievements in this field underpin the deal, team and firm of the year awards.

In recognising innovation, IFLR strives to celebrate work that improves the cross-border investment environment.

Only deals that reached financial close between July 1 2023 and June 30 2024 are considered in evaluation. Any submissions and participation in IFLR1000 research is also automatically included within awards decision making.

IFLR will also be celebrating the market's rising stars, market-leading practitioners, and in-house lawyers and teams, as well as offering awards for innovation in legal technology, ESG, and financial regulation.

In all cases, IFLR considers the sophistication and complexity of the work and the impact of the legal innovation, as well as contextual challenges in execution. Size, volume, and media coverage play no role in decision making.
