Keystone Law has been shortlisted for three awards in this year’s Business Leadership awards, presented by The Lawyer.

The awards, which aim to highlight the major changes in how firms and chambers of all kinds are providing their legal services, will celebrate excellence and innovation in an age of unparalleled market disruption. This year has seen the biggest-ever cross-section of the legal market taken, featuring boutique firms to global giants.

Keystone, the UK’s leader in dispersed law, has been nominated alongside the likes of Berwin Leighton Paisner, Olswang, Osborne Clarke, Mischon de Reya, and Axiom for awards in ‘Innovation in Agile Working’, ‘Best Marketing and Communications Campaign’, and ‘Best Marketing Team’.

This year sees The Lawyer’s first-ever judging panel for the Business Leadership awards consisting entirely of senior in-house lawyers. Top names featuring on the panel include Katharine Bellau, Deputy General Counsel,; Andrew Magown, General Counsel, ASOS; Tom Brown, Director and Head of Legal, PayPal UK; Bruce Macmillan, former Senior Legal Commercial Counsel, Visa Europe; Kate Cheetham, General Counsel, Lloyds Banking Group; and Keith Krasny, formally European General Counsel and VP, Expedia.

The awards will take place at the Grange St. Pauls Hotel on 22 September, when the final winners will be announced.

James Knight, Managing Director of Keystone Law, commented:

“It’s been a hugely successful year for Keystone. We continue to grow and lead the change in the way legal services are being delivered. To be nominated for three awards and in such a range of categories is truly exciting.”

Kristina Oliver, Head of Marketing at the firm, added:

“We’re delighted to have made the shortlist for this year’s Business Leadership Awards. It’s been a busy year for the Marketing team, in particular, with the launch of a dedicated recruitment site and a three-day publicity stunt in May. So to be recognised for these initiatives is fantastic.”
