The Australian Law Awards is the pinnacle event in Australia for recognising and rewarding dedicated and hard-working legal professionals. Now in its 21st year, and also coming off the back of the turbulent year that was 2020, it gives us reason to celebrate the accomplishments of leading legal professionals more than ever.
Attaining a prestigious accolade from this well-respected event serves as a testament to the outstanding effort and contributions these legal professionals bring with them each and every day. The finalist list, which was announced on 29 June 2021, features more than 350 high-achieving leaders within the legal industry, across 38 submission-based categories.
Lawyers Weekly editor Emma Ryan congratulated all of the finalists for this year’s event. “The Australian Law Awards is the largest and most-coveted awards ceremony hosted by the team at Lawyers Weekly, with this year shaping up to be the biggest yet,” Ms Ryan said. “The finalists recognised across the 38 categories are among the best in their field, displaying supreme skills and a passion for their respective practice areas. “On behalf of the team, we’d like to congratulate all of the finalists of this year’s Australian Law Awards.
Firm Director Peta Gray said, “As most of our supporters know, the Enterprise Legal Team loves an Awards night – not only is it an excuse to get dressed up, but it is recognition for our incredible team’s hard work and a way for us to benchmark the Firm at a National level. Given that ‘providing first-class legal services to the people of Toowoomba’ is a cornerstone of our business, we use National Awards as a way to measure all aspects of our Firm and team against the National standards.”
Firm Director Sharne Lategan added, “We are particularly thrilled that this year our longest-serving team member, Adrianna Williamson, is nominated for Legal Support Professional of the Year, which is an incredible achievement for someone in their early twenties!”
The seven categories that Enterprise Legal are nominated for are:
- Regional/Suburban Law Firm of the Year;
- ‘NewLaw’ Firm of the Year;
- Employor of Choice;
- Wellness Initiative of the Year;
- Regional/Suburban Lawyer of the Year – Sharné Lategan;
- Managing Partner of the Year – Peta Gray; and
- Legal Support Professional of the Year – Adrianna Williamson.
The Awards will be announced at a black-tie gala in Sydney on 20 August.
