It’s fair to say 2020 has been a year like no other and after this extraordinary year, it has never been more important for law firms to celebrate and be recognised for their outstanding work in the legal profession.
There is no doubt that winning one of the ‘credible legal industry awards’ can be wonderful for boosting staff morale within a law firm and it can significantly assist with employee recruitment, however at the same time it has been proven to help elevate the profile and reputation of a firm above that of their competitors. While larger firms can frequently win a number of awards yearly, for smaller firms, as well as those suppliers to law firms winning these awards demonstrate that the work you do is every bit as notable and important.
Whether you are considering pursuing an individual award, practice area or firmwide award, any recognition can also be great in terms of PR. Award announcements are a great opportunity to be shared internally with everyone and communicated externally via social media channels, press releases, website announcements and updated individual biographies or firmwide biography.
These days there are countless awards that law firms can enter but there is no point in winning an award that nobody has heard of and is not considered prestigious, so it important to choose the right award. Symphony Legal has compiled a comprehensive calendar for the remainder of the year of both ‘credible and specialist’ awards for the legal profession.
