INNOVATIO NOMINATION FORM

TOMORROW’S LEADERS
[FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH LESS THAN 5 YEARS IN-HOUSE
EXPERIENCE AND UNDER 10 YEARS AT THE BAR]

 

The 2017 Innovatio Awards is the pre-eminent award program designed to celebrate innovation in-house. Ultimately, it is about sharing best practices of the in-house bar to reflect the maturity of Canadian law departments.

The awards will recognize members of in-house departments within the Canadian legal market.

These awards celebrate in-house counsel, both individuals and teams, who have found ways to show leadership by becoming more efficient, innovative, and creative in meeting the needs of their clients and organizations.

The Innovatio awards will be judged by a panel of highly regarded in-house counsel to determine the winners, based on a range of criteria including outcomes for the overall business, cost savings, efficiency and effectiveness.

Nominations will be evaluated based on small and large in-house departments.
