The Lawyer Awards 2009

We’ve just received and email telling us … The Lawyer Awards 2009 are now open for entries!

See the blurb below.

We wonder how the world of lawyer awards will go this year. We can’t imagine firms will be taking too much advertising in the accompanying booklets or paying huge sums for tables on the awards night.

We suggest they add the following awards in this year:

  • Firm With The Most Layoffs
  • Firm Retaining The Most Partners Yet Losing The Most Support Staff
  • Firm With Most Decreased Revenues
  • Firm Who Has Closed The Most Offices in 2009
  • Firm Spending The Least Amount On Legal Directory Entries
  • Firm With Most Partners Jumping Ship To Become In House Counsel At Safe Corporates
  • Firm That Lost Most Amount of Business Due To Too Many Banking Clients
  • First Firm To Close Down Lexis Nexis & Westlaw Accounts


Ok that’s enough.. here’s the Lawyer Award info….
