The forty winners will be informed privately before the awards ceremony and the full list will be revealed publicly at the event.

The judging panel may decide to present an “Outstanding Achievement Award” in each category if they feel that one or more candidates are exceptional.

There will also be an “Outstanding Social Contribution Award”, which will be presented to one Spanish and one Portuguese lawyer for their dedication to social causes.

As in previous years, the awards ceremony will be preceded by the Iberian Legal Summit. This is an interactive debate enabling general counsel from Iberian and international businesses to discuss their current challenges with managing partners from law firms in Barcelona, Lisbon, and Madrid as well as elsewhere in Europe, the USA and Latin America.
