Carey Olsen has been shortlisted for Offshore Firm of the Year at The Lawyer European Awards 2021.

The awards, which will take place virtually on Wednesday 1 December, look to celebrate the very best of the legal industry across 24 categories, including regional accolades and prizes celebrating standout performance in a range of practice areas. Winners will be decided by a panel of independent judges, which includes managing partners of international law firms and in-house lawyers of multinational companies.

It is the first time the Offshore Firm of the Year category has been part of the European counterpart to the long-established The Lawyer Awards, where Carey Olsen had been shortlisted in the offshore category every year since 2013, winning in 2014 and claiming back-to-back award wins in 2017 and 2018.

News of the shortlisting follows in the footsteps of Carey Olsen leading all offshore firms with the number of top tier rankings it received in the 2022 editions of both Chambers UK and The Legal 500 UK.
