A Recap of What the LMG Awards are: 
LMG produces one of the most respected awards programs for life sciences practitioners and firms around the world. including Israel. Run by Euromoney, the awards are researched and adjudicated by a dedicated awards team that works across titles including Benchmark Litigation, Expert Guides, IFLR, ITR, Managing IP and The Deal. 

The awards look to recognize leading European law firms and lawyers specialized in the life sciences industry. 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.

The awards are split into practitioner, firm, and case/deal categories. Law firms, private practitioners, and in-house counsel teams are invited to make nominations detailing their accomplishments in the life sciences industry – broadly across the following categories.

The next awards will relate to accomplishments/deals/cases between January 1 – December 31, 2021.
