Later this year, The American Lawyer will once again turn its attention to the international legal scene, focusing in on the high-quality work being done by lawyers around the world on complex global matters. With our Global Legal Awards, we aim to honor the work being done by teams of law firms and in-house counsel on some of the world’s most noteworthy legal projects. These matters often require the involvement of creative lawyers across numerous jurisdictions, solving problems on the grandest scale.

Each of the four categories listed below is open to law firms or legal departments for work on a notable matter between January 2018 and the contest submission period. Contestants should submit an essay of no more than 750 words describing their role in the matter, the challenges they faced in working on it, how they overcame those challenges, and the impact on the client and industry. Please include the names of all firms and entities that played a significant role in the matter. Finalists will be announced this fall, and winners will be announced at The American Lawyer Industry Awards in December. The deadline for all submissions is June 14.
