CELEBRATING EXCELLENCE IN THE LEGAL PROFESSION

The Australasian Law Awards proudly returns in 2021 to recognise the region’s leading law firms, in-house legal teams, individuals, deals and cases over the past year. It’s a true reflection of excellence in the legal profession.

Leading firms, in-house legal teams, and lawyers are encouraged to nominate across 30-plus categories and be recognised for their achievements and outstanding work. Submissions will be reviewed by an esteemed independent judging panel.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, we won’t be able to run a face-to-face gala dinner in 2021. While we’re disappointed that we’re not going to be seeing you at our face-to-face event, we’ve come up with a unique format to recognise and celebrate excellence across the Australasian legal profession. The winners and excellence awardees will be announced at the live virtual event on Thursday 17 June 2021.

Nominations for the 2021 Awards are now open and will close on 19 February 2021. Nominate now!

  • AUD993m complex multi-jurisdictional acquisition across more than 11 national jurisdictions; Telstra’s largest acquisition in sixteen years
  • required complex hold harmless structures to be put in place to allow for the carve out and ultimate folding back into the business of assets in jurisdictions where regulatory approvals took extremely long periods of time
  • Pacnet was acquired with approximately US$400m of existing debt, which required careful analysis of the terms of the debt in the context of a Bermudian merger
