The New York Law Journal is seeking nominations for the 2014 Outstanding Legal Department award.

This process recognizes New York’s top in-house departments in several distinct categories, including management of outside counsel, use of technology, diversity and quality of life, pro bono and community service and corporate compliance.

The awards are 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.

To qualify, the departments must be led by lawyers in New York, anywhere in the state. Law departments of any size are eligible. The deadline for submissions has been extended to Jan. 17, 2014. The most outstanding departments will be recognized at a dinner on March 10, 2014.

For more information and nomination forms, go to, or contact Pearl Wu at or at 212-457-9646.
