The Lawyer of the Year Award is open to all lawyers and honours an individual who has demonstrated in an exemplary manner an exceptional achievement or achievements in the law during the year under review or whose achievements in the law over a period of time deserve to be celebrated.
The criterion set out in the foregoing paragraph should be reflected in submissions and such submissions should also refer to the following:
● Significance of an achievement or achievements relevant to the category;
● Quality of legal services offered and legal expertise relevant to the category, and
● Delivery of excellence in client service and effective communication with clients.
Nominations for this category will be based on/in the regions and recipients of awards will be announced for each region: Dublin (incl. City and County), Leinster (excluding Dublin), Munster and Connacht/Ulster, who will then go forward for consideration for the overall national award.
To nominate an individual in these categories, any principal practice office must be based within the selected region.
