Sparke Helmore Lawyers has been named a finalist in the "Australian Law Firm of the Year" and "Insurance Specialist Firm of the Year" categories of the 2018 Australasian Law Awards. The firm was also nominated in these categories in 2015, 2016 and 2017, with the Insurance Group winning the Insurance Specialist Firm award in 2016 and 2017.
"Congratulations to our Insurance Group for their fourth nomination, as well as our Corporate & Commercial, Government, Insurance and Workplace Groups, and all of our support and operational staff, for putting clients first and having all of their hard work recognised in the Law Firm of the Year category," said Phillip Salem, National Managing Partner.
The Awards will be presented at the Star Sydney on Thursday 17 May, where leading firms and in-house teams across Australia and New Zealand will be recognised for their outstanding achievements. In 2018, Sparke Helmore is also the sponsor of the "Insurance In-house Team of the Year" category.
There are 200 finalists competing across 34 categories, including awards for individual, in-house teams and firms. Recipients of the awards are selected by a panel of judges based on third-party information, including interviews with leading practitioners and in-house counsel. The panel assesses nominees on their client service and demonstrated expertise in their practice areas during the 2017 calendar year.
