Law Firm of the Year 2010 – irritatingly transparent, riskily unfixed
While I'd personally be quite happy to run an awards ceremony that saw Legal Week hand out prizes to our mates in smoke-filled, bribe-strewn rooms, wiser counsel has prevailed in recent years meaning the British Legal Awards has had the benefit of an independent judging panel, drawn up largely of senior clients. However, one of the main areas in which Legal Week's editorial team is involved in the awards is in drawing up the shortlist for the Firm of the Year award. So, in this spirit of regrettable transparency, the following blog is an edited version of the notes we'll be providing to the judges to help them make their decision, including why the firms were shortlisted.
