The Corporate INTL Awards merit those who have been active this past year and have demonstrated superior client service and legal knowledge. All award winners have been chosen through processes of public nominations and detailed research looking at service range, business type, geographical location, how the business operates and the expertise each law firm can offer to clients and companies in their respective practice areas. The firms then are reviewed by an independent awards panel consisting of business leaders, experts in the relevant field of law and the editor of Corporate INTL Magazine.
This is the 4th consecutive year of Corporate INTL’s awards program and is the largest to date. This year Corporate INTL has researched and awarded advisers from more than 100 countries and 40 states specializing in 60+ practice areas and sectors. As it stands, the Global Awards are now one of the largest and most well respected of their kind.
