New Zealand : ILANZ announces finalists for annual awards.

The In-house Lawyers Association of New Zealand (ILANZ) has announced the finalists for the 2019 In-house Lawyer Awards. As always, the judges faced a significant challenge in selecting finalists. The awards recognise leadership, excellence in the provision of legal services, and the valuable contribution that in-house lawyers make to both the legal profession and the wider community. The judging panels include senior in-house lawyers so the winners have the honour of being recognised by their peers as excelling in their field. The award winners will be announced on Friday, 10 May 2019 at the ILANZ Conference Niche Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony, which is being held at the Dunedin Town Hall.
