The Brief has opened nominations for its 2012 Middle East Awards 2012, which will be coming up in November.
“The Brief Middle East Law Awards 2012 will be held on 21 November 2012 and recognises the excellence and outstanding achievements of the Middle East’s leading law firms and in-house legal teams as well as the top deals and dealmakers. The Awards will attract over 200 of the Middle East’s most influential solicitors, in-house counsel, investment bankers, judiciary and CEOs, who assemble to celebrate with the winners as they accept their awards on stage. The event is the culmination of the months of intensive research that precede this important event. Winner information remains confidential until the awards ceremony itself, where they are revealed over a gala black-tie dinner. “
Of course you’ll want your firm to get nominated on the off chance that you can pilfer an invite and break out the tux, so here are the rules:
- Law firms, in-house departments, banks and accountancy firms must be based in Middle East.
- All deals must have a significant Middle East element to qualify.
- Work completed and services provided within the period of 1 June 2011 through 31 May 2012.
- Nominations close on 30 August 2012.
Composition of Judging Panel
General Panel – over 20 in-house counsel and private practice lawyers (Note: any judges involved in a specific deal or category are disqualified from voting for a related award category).”
