This year, the Daily Report is opening our Litigation Teams of the Year awards ONLY to firms with fewer than 200 lawyers firmwide—and we want to hear from you. The goal is to recognize the great lawyering that occurs every day across Georgia at firms beyond Big Law (who can compete in the American Lawyer Awards).

We’ve extended the deadline for submissions in the Litigation Teams of the Year categories to Monday, March 19.

These contests are not about who represented the largest or most prestigious client. Nor is it necessarily about who got the biggest—or smallest—verdict. The point is to honor litigators and litigation departments who achieved the best results for their clients through some combination of hard work, tenacity and ingenuity. Every firm with a litigation practice and fewer than 200 attorneys is welcome to enter, whether it be a plaintiffs personal injury firm, an insurance defense boutique or a general practice firm with a strong litigation department.

We will be honoring the top general litigation teams, as well as teams in these areas: appellate; insurance; intellectual property; labor and employment; products liability; specialty practice; personal injury; and white collar. Application materials can be found here.
