Recognition Awards

13th Annual Most Effective Lawyers Nomination Form

The Daily Business Review is seeking nominations for its 13th annual Most Effective Lawyers awards. Nominees should show proof of positive results obtained for the client. Other criteria include obstacles overcome, impact on public policy and business interests, and the professional track record of the nominees. The DBR may eliminate categories with limited competition or move entries to related categories.
We are using a streamlined nomination approach this year. In 500 words or less, please describe cases that concluded, transactions that closed or other legal issues that resolved in the year ended Sept. 30, 2017. Describe litigation, transactions or other legal activities; financial stakes; team members in South Florida and elsewhere; their roles and their locations. Nominees must be based in South Florida, but their work can take them anywhere.
Honorees will be recognized in a special report to be published Dec. 11.
