The LexisNexis Legal Awards 2018

block-section row-mid col-md-6
Over 250 leading lawyers gathered to recognise success across the legal sector and mark the bicentenary of LexisNexis at a glittering evening at the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane on Thursday 15th March 2018. 

Finalists, sponsors and guests celebrated excellence and innovation, with the awards also shining a spotlight on initiatives to enable access to justice, promote diversity and advance the Rule of Law. 

The evening was expertly hosted by television and radio personality Gyles Brandreth, who presented awards across 16 categories. These included the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award, which was accepted on the night by the former President of the Supreme Court, Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury.  

In a break with tradition, members of the legal profession voted online for the Legal Personality of the Year award, with the CEO of Obelisk Support Dana Denis-Smith emerging as the winner. 

The charity partner for the event was the International Law Book Facility which, since it was launched in 2005, has sent over 51,000 textbooks, that have been donated by the UK legal community, to provide much-needed legal research resources to more than 180 not-for-profit organisations in 50 countries around the globe. 

This year’s event was generously sponsored by ABC Chambers Solutions LLP, Bar Squared, Edwin Coe LLP, The Expert Witness Institute, F-LEX and Selborne Chambers. 

LexisNexis would like to congratulate all the winners and shortlisted nominees and thank everyone who submitted a nomination and voted.

“Winning was a real endorsement of the work our small team has undertaken to seek to explain the work of the new Supreme Court over the last few years. It was hugely encouraging to be recognised by experienced experts across the legal sector and meant a lot to all of us, and the wider court staff team.”
