Operating your own practice demands not only skilled legal work, it requires capabilities across marketing, sales, business systems and processes plus client retention strategies. This award recognises outstanding performance by an individual practising lawyer and is open to all female lawyers operating a sole practice in metropolitan, suburban, rural or regional areas, covering FY2016.
Nominees will be judged on their responses to the following:
- Detail outstanding work over FY2016 that demonstrates excellence in your specific area of practice.
- Highlight the strategies you’ve engaged to grow your practice – such as the retention and acquisition of new clients or implementation of new systems and processes to increase efficiencies and generate greater profitability.
- Provide examples of leadership at work and/or in your local community.
