Acquisition International are proud to announce the return of the prestigious Legal Awards 2022, for an eighth consecutive year with the ambition to celebrate and reward the brilliance and dedication of the world’s leading legal practitioners, and those who offer vital support services to the industry!
The legal environment is a fast-paced and exciting market, with increased competition and innovative advancements providing a raft of challenges for many legal practices as the industry always strives to evolve and improve.
To determine the results, our in-house research team will provide a case-file on behalf of each respective nominee, whilst nominees will also be encouraged to provide supporting information via an optional questionnaire to reinforce their nomination. All information received, both submitted by the nominee and provided via our researchers, will be presented to our judging panel for their final considerations.
As per all of Acquisition International’s awards, the Legal Awards 2022 selection process will be purely based on merit and excellence within any given field or specialism, rather than the number of nominations a party receives. This process ensures that the judges’ results are truly reflective of the commitment, excellence, and talent of the victor.
Success in the Legal Awards will provide you with the evidence you need to prove that beyond doubt you stand out from the crowd. Enhancing your victory with visual reminders is the perfect way to attract new clients and employees alike. Receiving third-party recognition helps to boost the reputation of your company and the trust in the services offered.
Acquisition International’s Legal Awards continue to serve as the ultimate guide to the very best that the legal industry has to offer. The awards provide a comprehensive go-to resource for those seeking the truly outstanding legal professionals from around the world, who go the extra mile to get the job done in style.

As one of AI Global Media’s Directors, Kathryn is passionate about delivering maximum value for each award winner.
"As a freelance business adviser, it was a fantastic feeling just to be noticed amongst all the other larger consulting firms in the UK.
I’ve used the award in a number of ways already: to assure clients that they are, and are continuing to, work with recognised excellence; and to assure my parents that their son didn’t turn out all that badly after all!
"This recognition has also meant that my credibility when submitting evidences and ideas to inform future government policy and wider business support practices is enhanced. It’s offered me a great excuse to rekindle relationships with lapsed colleagues and network contacts who reached out to congratulate me on this achievement."

"Winning an award is a third-party endorsement of your capabilities and should be highly treasured and promoted.
"AI Global Media have gone out of their way to help me promote the award, they have taken the awards to the next stage, it is not a bye-bye when you have the certificate but a concentrated effort to ensure that your achievements reach a wider audience. Our award has been seen on all the social media platforms, by clients and competitors, friends, and family. The logo is on every email we send out and all of this is due to the encouragement of the team at AI.
"The award has endorsed our capabilities, made people think more seriously about our work and most importantly has influenced our bottom line. People are more likely to trust an award winner and accept that if you employ an award-winning agency there is a cost for this extra layer of professional advice."
