The Connecticut Law Tribune is accepting nominations in twelve categories for our fourth annual Professional Excellence Awards.

Our goal at ALM 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 get a chance to highlight the great work and achievements across the full breadth of the Connecticut legal community. To that end, while we’re still looking for Lifetime Achievement and New Leader nominees from all sizes of firms—large, medium and small—we’re introducing a number of contests specifically tailored to recognize those at midsize and small firms.

We are introducing five additional new categories this year, all geared exclusively toward firms with fewer than 200 lawyers. The new categories are: Game Changers, Giant Slayers, Best Officiators, Unsung Hero, and Best Mentor.

The honorees will be recognized in special editorial sections in May and at a reception and at the Connecticut Legal Awards dinner in May in Hartford, CT.

Please see below for specific guidelines for nominations in each category.
