The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Australia is part of a global network spanning over 85 countries with more than 40,000 in-house counsel employed by more than 10,000 organisations. It is the peak national association representing the interests of in-house counsel working for corporations and government in Australia. ACC Australia works to provide its members and in-house lawyers, with the very best representation, advice, education and resources to further the profession.
Each year ACC Australia hosts its National Conference and In-house Lawyer of the Year Awards. These awards recognise excellence in the provision of legal services and the contribution made by in-house lawyers whether in government or business legal departments.
For several years Sparke Helmore proudly sponsors the Government Lawyer of the Year award category. The award recognises government lawyers who have shown highest excellence beyond the expectations in the provision of legal services, leadership, overall contribution and knowledge of their government department.
