Legal Elite Awards
About the Legal Elite Awards
The legal industry remains one of the most fiercely competitive sectors in the world, having experienced many changes over the past 10 years, the innovation undertaken by legal professionals and firms has never been more crucial for those seeking to rise above their competitors.
As the demand for personalized, creative approaches towards dealing with a client’s legal requirements becomes increasingly important, firms and individuals must work harder than ever to provide thorough and efficient services which meet the needs of each client requiring legal assistance or support.
The Legal Elite Awards honors those who place customer satisfaction at the forefront of their practice, by recognizing the efforts of those who count themselves amongst the leading legal minds within their jurisdiction. We highlight the most respected lawyers and attorneys, identifying their fields of expertise, the clients they represent and focus on the outstanding results achieved as a result of sustained commitment and passion within the industry.
No matter the field of law, or the service provided, the Legal Elite Awards is open to all businesses, individuals and initiatives, operating within the legal sector, throughout the countries found across the Americas.
Taking part in the Legal Elite Awards is the perfect way to demonstrate your achievements over the past 12 months and serves as an opportunity to demonstrate your commitment in promoting business excellence and innovation in an industry mired in history.
A fringe benefit of including yourself in the Legal Elite Awards, is the boost it gives to your workforce; upon hearing that the wider community has recognized the dedication and commitment of your team, deeming it worthy of public merit, is always heartening to those currently employed. It can also assist in bolstering your ranks with new talent looking to work for the best.
Should you go on to win, there are many means and methods which we can explore together to ensure that news, of your victory, reaches the ears and eyes of those who matter most to you and your business.
Regardless of the size of the practice, firm or business, all participants in the Legal Elite Awards are judged purely on merit; therefore, we only commend the businesses and services which stand out from the crowd and have gone the extra distance to ensure their client’s satisfaction. Should you wish to take part or know of a firm or individual who deserves a place on the shortlist this year, simply get in touch.
1. Researching of all nominees
The team here at New World Report work intensely to identify true market leaders, innovators and enterprising start-ups and existing businesses, driving many of the nominations ourselves.
We encourage external nominations via the nomination or voting form which is held on our website. We invite our subscribers, website users, social media followers and our wider circulation to submit nominations via the online form.
Nominating parties are open to put forward either third-party businesses whom they hold in high regard, or their own organisation or sub-division of their business if they see fit.
2. Creating our shortlist
All nominees will be contacted directly and are formally requested to accept their nomination before we proceed further. Should any firm or individual rather decline at this point, they are of course welcome to do so and will be taken out of the running.
Those who formally accept are given the opportunity to submit additional materials in support of their nomination. Such additional items could be evidence of client feedback, client case studies, detail of any major projects etc. Although there is no obligation to supply such details, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, as much as our research team do.
3. Judging and evaluating our nominees
Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them.
The team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves.
The research team casts their final judgement, based on various criteria including but not limited to client dedication, innovation, business growth, longevity, online reputation, customer feedback and business performance.
4. The lucky winners
Once winners are determined, they will be personally notified by our team before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. In most cases winners will be notified initially by email so don’t forget to keep a close eye on those inboxes!
Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, whether you have been selected as a winner or not all nominees are encouraged to come back next year.
Once the press embargo is lifted, details of New World Report award winners will be made public via the website, award winners’ magazine and newsletter.
5. Maximise your business award success
We are able to offer a range of promotional packages and promotional items to New World Report award winners, these vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, to trophies, content in winners’ special edition magazine and on our website.
We encourage all winners to publicly announce their win independently. Announcements via company websites, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such an amazing achievement. If you have need of further advice on how to gain maximum exposure from your win, please feel free to get in touch. We are more than happy to assist our clients with their needs.
Katherine is both customer-focused and forward-thinking in her approach. Katherine is dedicated to ensuring that these awards really do recognise the ‘legal elite’, giving credit to those most deserving and in ensuring that all those who are determined as winners understand how to capitalise on their win in order to really gain some great exposure and new business on the back of their award.
