New Jersey Law Journals “Litigation Departments of the Year”
These awards include a general contest to recognize New Jersey’s top general litigation practice and separate competitions to determine the top specialty practices in other litigation areas. The competition is open to any law firm with a New Jersey presence which completes a comprehensive nomination form; New Jersey lawyers must be extensively involved in the work being presented for consideration, though said work does not need to have been New Jersey based. Criteria include recent litigation results, ongoing litigation experience, and client references.

New Jersey Law Journals “Top Women in Law”
For its annual Women in the Law Awards, New Jersey Law Journal seeks suggestions from readers on women attorneys “from anywhere in New Jersey, who work in law firms, government agencies, public interest organizations or anywhere else lawyers may find themselves employed,” and also considers candidates discussed among its editorial staff. Criteria include the candidate’s impact on the legal community over the prior year or other notable work; the publication evaluates “specific examples of the candidate’s recent contributions to the legal community, whether it’s settling a big case, leading a department through a difficult stretch, producing innovative ideas or making an impact in some other way.”
