Successful women are notorious for not tooting their own horns when it comes to their accomplishments. So we want to help shine a spotlight on all that you do. To that end, Corporate Counsel is seeking nominations for its Women, Influence & Power in Law Awards, which honors North American general counsel and law firm partners who have demonstrated a commitment to advancing the empowerment of women in law and have shown extraordinary leadership in their careers.

The honorees for these awards stand out because they are business strategists, complex problem-solvers, and of course, great lawyers. And as important (especially to them) is that they are also great people-leaders—they care more about the success of the team than their individual success.
