We are thrilled to be co-sponsoring the UK GC Powerlist and sponsoring the GC of the Year Award at the Legal Business Awards.

We understand at Laurence Simons how vital a General Counsel and their team are to the success of a business, either by enabling a company to achieve their business strategies and/or de-risking them.   We see everyday how top GCs run their departments with vital human and legal skills.

The UK GC Powerlist highlights today’s most influential in-house lawyers and legal teams. These nominees have been instrumental in challenging or forming the opinions of their organisations, responsible for developing brilliant technical solutions to complex issues, creating innovative structures to drive business, and providing a business working model that other corporate counsel should follow. In addition to co-sponsoring the UK list, we are proud to be sponsoring a pre-event champagne reception for all the nominees ahead of the Legal Business Awards ceremony.

The winner of the GC of the Year Award will be a UK-based General Counsel (or those in the most senior in-house legal position) who has truly led the way for their business in 2022. Key factors influencing the judging panel include board profile, outstanding strategic thinking, superb communication skills and the extent to which individuals have the support of their teams in delivering exceptional value to the broader business to help it move forward.

If you are attending the awards, please make sure to come and meet our friendly team.
