You thought you missed it, didn’t you? The deadline for a terrific annual award that recognizes the vital role in-house counsel play in the success of a business.
No need to worry. The deadline for this year’s Arizona Corporate Counsel awards is Monday, October 26. Given your likely wide circle of colleagues to nominate and the blazingly simple nomination form, you won’t even have to break a sweat to offer up a colleague’s name.
Have you met or worked with in-house counsel who impress you with their skills and approach? Organizers of an annual award event seek your nominations.
The awards were founded by AZ Business Magazine and the Association of Corporate Counsel state chapter.
The 9 categories are listed below. Nominations are welcome in all, but I have heard that award organizers would be very pleased to receive more nominations in the final four areas listed (I have thoughtfully bolded them for your convenience!):
- Public company (large)
- Public company (small)
- Private company (large)
- Private company (small)
- Nonprofit company
- Government/municipal/public sector
- In-house law department of the year
- Intellectual property attorney of the year
The Awards Dinner will be held on January 14, 2016 at the Camby Hotel in Phoenix. Grant Woods will once again be the keynote speaker, so prepare to be entertained.
As in the past, the State Bar of Arizona is a presenting partner for the program.Follow @azatty
