The Luxury Law Awards are designed to recognize the skills that it takes to guide a luxury business or brand to profitable success and the legal teams who stand behind the best luxury business leaders.


Organised in conjunction with the Luxury Law Summit, which is the only event to bring together luxury business leaders with the legal advisers who support their businesses, the Awards offer a similarly unique opportunity for general counsel, in house legal teams and law firms to gain recognition for their specialist skills and expertise in the luxury sector.


Winning a Luxury Law Award will demonstrate that you, or your team, are leading the field in the practice of luxury law and in the development of good business strategy in complex and challenging international luxury markets.
