INDIAN LEGAL AWARDS 2019-20: AN INITIATIVE BY LEGAL ERA - LEGAL MEDIA GROUP
We all need to push ourselves, especially lawyers, considering how important legal expertise has become for business in general. At a time when blurring geopolitical boundaries, economic and technological advances are creating a host of challenges for the legal fraternity, cut-throat competition being the least of them, how does one choose the best legal counsel? Is there a yardstick to judge the best legal practitioner, legal team or law firm the industry has to offer?
Legal Era Magazine of the Legal Media Group was among the first to recognize this problem and offer a solution. Nine years ago, it instituted the Legal Era Awards aka Indian Legal Awards, to recognize legal finesse, innovation and accomplishments… You think these are tall claims? Then think again!
Nine years and eight editions later, we are proud to say that the Indian Legal Awards stand out in a crowded legal awards market, courtesy their credibility, impartiality, egalitarianism and international flavor. I say credibility, because they are not rigged in any way. Impartiality, because merit alone decides the winners, who are selected by an independent jury comprising the most distinguished names in business, based on submissions along with exhaustive research and industry reviews. Egalitarianism, because all achievers are equal in our eyes, be they well known or (relatively) unknown names. International flavor, because the Awards have transcended geographical borders. Notably, the Indian Legal Awards continue to be the most coveted certificate of competence in the Indian legal industry.
