Celebrate your hard work and commitment to “running your firm
like a business,” and apply for the 3rd Annual Law Firm 500 Award.
Has your law firm undergone a period of rapid growth? Are you leaps and bounds ahead of where you were 12, 24, or 36 months ago?
The Law Firm 500 Award is an honor bestowed upon the fastest growing law firms in America. Law Firms who were recognized in 2016 and 2017 received recognition for their accomplishments AND were included in a list of law firms published by industry media outlets, and mentioned by thought leaders.
The Award and Gala sparks referral relationships, sharing of ideas and friendships law firm owners will have for years to come. So, it’s time to ask yourself; Why isn’t my law firm on the list?
If your business is awarded, your firm will be invited to receive your award at the Gala Banquet during the Annual Law Firm 500 Conference held October 18-20, 2018 in Lake Las Vegas, Nevada. This year's keynote is Erin Brockovich who is behind the largest direct-action lawsuit in the US - $333 Million.
