trophyThe New York Law Journal congratulates the winner of its award for Best In-House Legal Department, Bayer AG.

This contest recognizes outstanding work performed by an in-house legal department over the past year. The award is based on success stories: How a given corporate counsel’s office, regardless of its size, came up with innovative programs, used ingenuity to solve problems or surmounted a scarcity of resources and still delivered high-quality client service.

The winner will be recognized in the New York Law Journal’s upcoming Professional Excellence magazine and honored Oct. 23rd at the New York Legal Awards at Tribeca 360 in New York City. The event will feature numerous other recognitions, including Rising Stars, Distinguished Leaders, Lifetime Achievement, Litigation Departments of the Year, and the announcement of the Attorney of the Year. For information about tickets and sponsorships for the event, please contact Andre Sutton at
