Longstanding publishing stalwarts, Asia Legal Business, based in Hong Kong, have created their first Middle East Awards after various awards within APAC over the previous two decades. There is an Israel law firm of the year category, which should include a mix of matters, including deals – M&A, equity and debt capital markets, particularly. You can include matters that started, ended, or are ongoing between Sep 2019 and Sep 2020, but you cannot include any matters that started after this period.

LMG Life Sciences Firm of the Year

The awards look to recognize leading European law firms and lawyers specialized in the life sciences industry. A virtual awards ceremony will take place in May 2021 to celebrate outstanding legal work over the previous calendar year. The awards ceremony aims to honour firms and attorneys on the forefront of legal work in life sciences across practice and technology areas. The award’s distinctive structure highlights firms, individuals and notable matters following a comprehensive research process surveying the market each year. They will be rewarding legal work in the life sciences that has taken place between 1 January to 31 December 2020. They ask firms to provide recent deal and case highlights and this is used to determine their position in the market.

Firms should provide their most complex and interesting matters in the research form and explain clearly to our research team why they are important and what they tell us about the firm’s abilities. They speak to a wide range of corporate and in-house contacts to get their opinions on the firms and attorneys they use, as well as lawyers throughout Europe in life sciences. Emphasis is on corporate/finance, IP, non-IP litigation and enforcement and regulation.

National firm of the year awards – including Israel – will be based primarily on the evidence of work highlights. The evaluation will focus on work done under the governing law of the relevant jurisdiction, considering the role of the firm in the work, its impact and complexity.
