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 Pennsylvania legal community. To that end, while we’re still looking for Attorney of the Year, Lifetime Achievement and Lawyers on the Fast Track 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.

The Legal Intelligencer is accepting nominations in 10 categories this year, including four new categories geared exclusively toward firms with fewer than 200 lawyers. The new categories are: Law Firm Innovators, Best Law Firm Mentors, Power Players and Unsung Heroes.

We are also revamping our Distinguished Leaders and Litigation Departments of the Year Awards to focus exclusively on law firms with fewer than 200 lawyers firmwide. Firms with 200 lawyers or more, meanwhile, will be eligible to participate in ALM’s national competition, the Americas Legal Awards. More details on those awards will be announced soon.

The Legal Intelligencer Professional Excellence honorees will be recognized in special editorial sections and a awards dinner in June in Philadelphia.
