The countdown to the Indian Legal Awards, instituted by Legal Era Magazine, has begun.
The 7th Annual Awards, to be held in March 24, 2018, will keep up the tradition of recognizing finesse, innovation and achievements of legalpractitioners, in-house teams and law firms.
The Awards are among the most coveted in the legal fraternity and not without reason. The award categories are curated to reflect the complex and challenging work undertaken by lawyers, legal departments and law firms, and selection is based on factors such as service type and range, business type and operation, and individual/team expertise, among others. Apart from the fact that merit alone decides who stands out, the selection process itself is hugely credible, with winners being decided by an independent jury comprising the most distinguished names in business. Another plus is that the Awards recognize both established names as well as rising stars in the industry. The Awards themselves span practice areas such as banking, insurance, media and entertainment, pharmaceuticals, IT, telecommunication and e-commerce. Some of the trailblazing Indian Legal Awards include: Lifetime Achievement, Legal Icon of the Year, General Counsel of the Year, National Law Firm of the Year, International Law Firm of the Year, and many more…
This year’s Awards are unlike all previous editions in that they will be held at the end of our ambitious two-day event, the Legal Era GENNEXT BUSINESS CONGRESS 2018, which will see a host of law firm heads and GCs get together to explore various issues driving innovation, disruption and change in the legal profession.
Based on the theme "Impact of Regulatory Regimes, Global Developments & Future Strategies”, the Congress will witness insightful and interactive sessions on a wide range of topics, including definition of growth at the time of policy reforms, liberalization as an integral part of globalization, steps to be taken today for a better tomorrow, need for collaborative ideation, the Kotak Committee Report on corporate governance, GST, IBC, investment opportunities, M&A, IP and IPR policy, asset recovery, anti-corruption legislation, controlling cybercrime, corporate fraud, and business 2020.
