Our goal at ALM Media is to serve the entire legal community and, as part of that, we’re adding new wrinkles to our annual Professional Excellence Awards to make sure we highlight the great work and achievements across the full breadth of the legal communities that our publications serve.

We have categories in select regions, as well as honoring Litigation Departments of the Year in those regions for midsize firms. For large firms (200+ attorneys), we have our new regional Litigation Departments of the Year category from The American Lawyer for Pennsylvania, New Jersey, California, Texas, Florida, Georgia, and Connecticut.

Please note that this list only covers U.S. editorial awards for ALM’s legal publications.  It does not include research surveys, regulated markets publications, or business-side awards or international awards.

For research surveys (AmLaw 200, NLJ 500, Pro Bono Scorecard, etc.), please contact Carole Clark at [email protected]You can also sign up for research survey notifications here.
