Setting The Stage for An Extraordinary Recognition of Extraordinary Talent Among Our Legal Fraternity

“We must continue to create platforms of engagement and exchange that make a real difference.”

These were the words of Honourable Shri R. Venkatramani, Attorney General of India, at the 12th Annual Legal Era India Conclave 2023 held at Hotel Hyatt Regency, New Delhi.

And here we are: Agile and committed to harnessing the spirit of the legal fraternity, celebrating legal excellence, and transcending geographical boundaries to address the most pressing legal challenges of our time, Legal Era is back with setting another benchmark by recognizing legal finesse, innovation, and accomplishments of Legal Practitioners, In-House Teams, and Law Firms at the 13th Annual Indian Legal Era Awards 2024.

Scheduled for April 2024, the awards will see an unprecedented gathering with participation from the leading stalwarts of the legal industry, advocates, and eminent jurists.

The Award categories include Law Firms, In-House, Individual, International, and Premier League. They span practice areas both old and new. The selection criteria will cover service types and ranges, nature of business and operations, and individual/team expertise. Some distinctive titles are Lifetime Achievement, Legal Icon of the Year, Star General Counsel of the Year (Male and Female), and Star Young Achiever (Law Firm and In-House), and more.

We are at the crossroads of legal ingenuity and business acumen, where our decisions send ripples across the industry. Each of you nominating yourself for the Legal Era Awards 2024 is one of the changemakers and contributors defining the legal-social-economic contours not only of India but also regions worldwide.

As at every edition of the Legal Era Awards, the environs of the Awards evening will be eclectic, inspiring, and delightful. Fuelled by a deep sense of accomplishment, we will hear the most inspirational acceptance speeches as the honourable stalwarts and speakers shake hands with the awardees, give a pat on the back, present the gorgeous trophies, clink glasses, savour dinner, enjoy ample photo ops, and essentially, enjoy the celebration of camaraderie among the Legal Era Community.

Indeed, this 13th Annual Legal Era Indian Legal Awards 2024 will be an occasion to set yourself apart by being recognized for your journey of navigating 2023-24 and leading teams with innovation and international best practices, the incredible value you bring to your clients across industry, the transformative solutions you enabled, and your contribution to the society and nation-building.

The event will also be live telecast on the Legal Era-YouTube Channel.

Merit alone decides the winners selected by an independent jury. The applications go through layers of exhaustive research and industry reviews to ensure the selection and scoring processes are thorough. The jury will consider the relevant challenges, opportunities, and cultural trends of 2023-24.

Since the institution of the Legal Era Indian Legal Awards in 2011, these Annual Awards have grown from strength to strength, garnering much love and respect from the legal fraternity, so much so that today, we all know that Legal Era Awards are a professional game changer! A badge of pride, the awards have acquired an international flavour, transcended geographical borders and recognized outcomes over cross-border and cross-functional matters and roles.

Legal Era began creating thought leadership among Indian lawyers and GCs since 2007. And over a decade and a half, Legal Era today has a footprint in every continent, including Africa, the Middle East, the US, the UK, and Asia. Legal Era is the only think tank in India constantly working towards legal education, research, and advocacy.

It is time to make an impact not only on your professional growth trajectory by becoming a Legal Era Awardee but also on the progress of law and the economy. It is opportune to revisit a message from one of our distinguished guests of honour earlier: Let us not be a mechanical cog in the wheel – Let us transform the wheel itself!
