Press Release


London, April, 2016 – ACQ, a premier global corporate magazine, is proud to release the results of its ACQ Law Awards 2016 sponsored by widza, taking the ultimate step in the search for the most outstanding law firms, practice areas and individual / firm-wide professionals within the public & private sectors across the globe.

Since 2008, the ACQ Law Awards have been celebrating achievement, innovation and brilliance in their annual awards. A strong claim, but ACQ really is different to other publications. Very few can truly boast the heritage and reputation of ACQ.

Exceptional individuals, teams and firms across the marketplace represent the very best in their field from around the world and truly deserve the accolade of being an ACQ Law Award winner.” said Jake Robson, Editor in Chief of ACQ. “The legal sector contributes billions in currency to the global economy, much of which is derived from exports. The ACQ Law Award categories have been carefully chosen to reflect the variety of work undertaken by business lawyers working at law firms and in company legal departments. There are also a series of awards designed to reflect the wider contribution law firms and legal department make to the community, including Diversity and CSR. All category winners are in effect, a brand. In one sense, perhaps the most important sense, a brand is a promise. You know what you’re going to get with a well-branded product or service. It takes a lot of time, money and very hard work to build and maintain great brands, brands that can speak volumes in just a few syllables. It’s shorthand for what you are.

All category winners in the ACQ Law Awards 2016 represent this ethos and this year. The quality of this year's entries is astonishingly high and a testament to the fact that the profession continues to innovate and deliver high-quality services”

The marketplace is continually changing with increasing external pressure and competition. It is good to see that all ACQ Law Awards 2016 winners are showing no signs of complacency. Far from it, each year, nominations show that the market continues to spearhead solutions that allow it to stay at the top of the game.

On behalf of ACQ, I personally would like to thank our sponsors for contributing to the success of these awards and encourage all in the marketplace, whether its businesses large or small, individuals in niche sectors or the genuine icons of the “game” to continue to pioneer and nurture new talent.
