Lawyers Weekly is pleased to announce the recipients of this year’s Corporate Counsel Awards.
For the second year running, Lawyers Weekly has celebrated the best in-house lawyers and legal teams across Australia.
This year’s event, in partnership with LOD - Lawyers on Demand, saw over 500 guests gather together at Sydney’s Four Seasons Hotel.
Winners, finalists, colleagues, friends and family were treated to a three-course dinner, as well as entertainment provided by master of ceremonies Craig Reucassel.
Twenty-seven awards were handed out, including the hotly contested Excellence Award.
We would like to thank all of those who came out to celebrate the nation’s finest in the corporate counsel community, as well as our partners and judges who had a hand in making the event possible.
Now, without further ado – meet this year’s best in-house lawyers and legal teams…
