Goodwin was named the Editor’s Choice Law Firm of the Year at the 2023 British Legal Awards, which were held in London on November 29. Now in their 14th year and hosted by Law.com International, The British Legal Awards are the premier legal awards in the region, representing the best of the best within the UK’s legal community.
The Editor’s Choice Law Firm of the Year award is presented annually to one firm that excels when it comes to performance, attorney recruitment, diversity, equity and inclusion, and pro bono and community work. The awards committee said the following of Goodwin:
“Global and London revenues go from strength to strength as it continues to pave the way into non-traditional markets, particularly life sciences and technology. The winning firm also continues to operate at the vanguard of global M&A despite the many challenges presented by a difficult market, and has also excelled across metrics that have for a number of years been overlooked by the industry, especially racial and gender diversity.”
The firm’s London and Cambridge offices are integral to the success of Goodwin’s global capital-meets-innovation platform, advising both the innovators and investors transforming industries in the UK and across Europe.
Goodwin was previously named International Law Firm of the Year by The British Legal Awards in 2022. In 2020, Goodwin was named Life Sciences Team of the Year for the first time in firm history.
The British Legal Awards winners are decided by an independent judging panel made up of general counsel, senior members of the legal community as well as former law firm managing partners.
