LCA Law Firm Platinum Awards
The LCA has created a law firm recognition award program designated the Platinum Awards, which recognizes North American law firms for excellence in a variety of practice areas. The awards are categorized by large firms (NLJ 350) and small to medium size firms. Awards are based upon research and input of LCA Fellows who practice in the areas recognized by the LCA, and who sit on the Platinum Awards Committee. Results of other recognized award granting entities and associations are considered in the Platinum Awards Committee process and methodology. Since committee members vote only in their practice category, they are familiar with the expertise, reputation and standing of firms in such category and consider the relative strengths to be recognized accordingly. The professional opinions of committee members may be qualitative, objective or subjective. Firms cannot pay to be included in the results.
