About the Global Counsel Awards
In January 2007 Lexology, in association with the ACC, launched the Global Counsel Awards to uniquely recognise the excellent work done by corporate in-house legal teams and individuals. The primary aim is to reward lawyers for demonstrable achievements across the full spectrum of in-house responsibility, and not simply those who have acted on high-profile transactions. Winners will have performed above and beyond the usual requirements of their profession and position. The research team will focus on criteria such as effective communication, legal understanding, commercial awareness, depth and strength of team, and management skills, in addition to any significant projects or transactions. While based on thorough and coherent research, the results will remain the subjective views of the research team.
