Firms and individuals practicing in Birmingham and surrounding areas are invited to submit nominations in one of the 12 award categories.

In a change to previous years, we have refreshed some of the categories to make the awards more inclusive and more accurately reflect the legal sector.

Nominations will be judged by an experienced panel of independent judges, comprising leading figures from law, business and academia. The winners announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday 14th March 2019 at The ICC.
