About The Award
Acquisition International is proud to announce the launch of the Legal Awards 2023! This highly anticipated programme is returning for the ninth consecutive year, and over time has become a flagship award for the AI brand. Since 2015, we have been dedicated to recognising the best of the best across the Legal sector, shining a light on the lawyers, advisors, and related service providers who have demonstrated excellence in their chosen fields. The Legal Awards 2023 will serve as the ultimate guide to the firms and individuals driving growth and innovation in the Legal industry today. The Legal Services market is valued at close to a trillion US dollars globally, and according to a recent report by IRN Legal, 2023 is expected to be another year of stable growth. Corporate Law maintains its position as the largest segment, with Employment and Family Law also predicted to perform extremely well in the coming years. While the large-firm category continues to lead the market in terms of revenue – thanks to the broad range of services they are able to provide internationally – medium and small-sized firms are also experiencing rapid growth. By offering a more specialised service, these smaller firms can attract a different clientele to that of the big corporates, expanding their customer base and increasing their market share. In order for law firms to remain competitive and gain an advantage over other key industry players, they must stay up to date with today’s changing client demands. Whether this is through strategic partnerships, implementation of technology, mergers and acquisitions, or corporate initiatives, it will be crucial for the modern law firm to be forward-thinking and anticipate future trends. We will therefore be sure to recognise firms that are not only able keep up with demand, but demonstrate their own innovative approaches towards meeting the needs of their clients. One of the biggest influences on the Legal market today is the advancement of technology. Solutions such as AI and Machine Learning are innovating legal processes, allowing data management, document review, contract drafting, and other repetitive tasks to be fully automated. These, as well as other new technologies including cloud storage and big data analytics, are valuable tools law firms can utilise to increase productivity and streamline their operations. Acquisition International provides a fantastic platform for law firms to showcase their services to an international audience of industry peers and potential clients! Winners in the Legal Awards 2023 will be determined based on unbiased and strict selection criteria, taking into consideration factors such as client testimonials and recommendations, industry expertise, significant achievements or cases over the past year, career highlights, and other corporate accolades. To ensure that every recipient can benefit from the exposure that Acquisition International offers, we present both a free-of-charge marketing toolkit and a range of commercial packages to all winners. Our helpful Awards Team is on hand to assist you in selecting the most appropriate option to get the most value out of your budget.

All those who formally accept their nomination will be asked if they would like to submit material for further consideration as supporting evidence.

Our research team who are highlighted below will assess all information presented when it comes to determining winners.

The team gather information independently from a number of publicly available sources, they will assess the material supplied by the nominees and by those who put them forward originally.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long has Acquisition International been in circulation for?
Acquisition International has been running for nine years and in that time the publication has grown substantially, now having a circulation of 85,000 readers in over 170 countries. AI is a monthly magazine that seeks to inform, entertain, influence, and shape the global corporate conversation. We aim to achieve this through a combination of high quality editorial, rigorous research and an experienced worldwide network of dedicated advisors, experts and contributors. Acquisition International is one of the many publications by AI Global Media, a UK based publisher which has over 200 issues to its name since 2010.
Where did the nomination come from?
In the interest of maintaining high response rates, we do not ask nominees to reveal their personal identity. As per the methodology, we frequently nominate candidates ourselves and, when it comes to the process of voting, if you didn’t cast a vote by self-submission it is likely to have been cast via a colleague or client who has received one of our direct invitations. One of the main mantras of our awards system is that your ability to succeed is not linked to the number of votes received. This means that your award will be received purely on merit. However, we do track unusual behaviour on our website to identify repeat votes and cyber-threats.
What happens if I agree to shortlist?
In the interest of focusing our efforts on relevant candidates, we ask all nominees to accept their position on the shortlist. This also gives people complete control in their decision on whether they would like to move forward with the award. Nominees who accept will be subject to our rigorous internal vetting procedure. They have an opportunity to present their own data which gets considered alongside the information collated by our research team. It can take up to 8 weeks for research to be completed.
Who makes the final decision?
We employ an entirely impartial panel of 5 individuals to conduct all of the research to our high standards. At the helm, the panel is led by a veteran academic leader with international academic and training experience and is well versed in research, fact-checking and mediation. We believe this method is the most efficient in determining which individuals and companies are most deserving in winning an award and has brought us much success and commendation throughout its use.
Is there a winner’s ceremony/award dinner and if so, when does it take place?
We do not focus our efforts on a celebratory event, despite being an enjoyable occasion, it doesn’t support our group’s philosophy of cost-effective marketing. As well as the lack of cost efficiency, AI is a company who runs awards worldwide and we believe it would be logistically difficult for some of our winners to attend an awards ceremony. We follow the belief that any of the optional costs involved with the award would be more beneficial in a year’s worth of online marketing for a winner, rather than spending it all on a ceremonial evening. All of our press announcements are made digitally, online and across our network to enforce our position as digital publishers. We aim to arm you with the tools (both digital and physical) to generate real-world value.
What happens if I am deemed successful?
There is a short press embargo in place where we ask you not to make the news public. During this period the programme manager will liaise with you to agree on the most appropriate coverage. Our main coverage takes the form of a digital celebratory magazine, but we also offer physical trophies, wall mounted and digital certificates, web-based advertisements and generic press releases which are bespoke to you or your company.
Are there any costs involved?
As previously mentioned there are no compulsory costs in accepting a nomination or winning an Acquisition International award. We do offer a variety of paid additional benefits for our winners, but these are completely optional. To demonstrate our commitment to no mandatory fees, all our winners are offered a free of charge promotional package. Our company policy will always remain: regardless of budget, our clients should always be able to garner the full value of the award and our seal of approval. We offer a variety of promotional opportunities to our winners. as we have an extensive network and we know, more than anyone, the wider business benefits from promoting industry awards.
Why does your email domain differ from your website domain?
Because we send a large volume of emails, we separate our campaign email sends from our transactional ones. This structure helps to ensure a prompt and thorough response from one of our diligent team members. The sending email address will always be recognisable but please contact us via the address on this page if you have any concerns.
