If any information on the submission is confidential, please indicate so. However, any information provided will not be disclosed without the prior authorization of the firm or lawyer, or in-house team or in-house lawyer..

During the market research, both data provided by the law firms, lawyers, in-house team and in-house lawyer in the submissions and the information gathered by the market as a result of the intelligence process will be taken into consideration.

  1. Second phase: Jury voting / Winner selection
    The winners per category will be selected by the Jury and announced on the Gala night.

Legalcommunity.ch will convene a jury that will be comprised of a selected group of people from the Legalcommunity.ch newsroom and a representative from ACC Europe with a good understanding of the sector as a representation of the market.

The winners will be determined by the votes of the jury.

ART. 3 – Communication of the finalists and winners: the list of finalists for each of categories will be published on the legalcommunity.ch website on March 4.
