The LMG Life Sciences Awards is excited to announce its shortlist for the 2022 EMEA Awards.


The LMG Life Sciences Awards has released the full list of finalists for its 2022 EMEA awards. The awards will bring together Europe’s legal community to recognise the leading law firms and lawyers from across the region to celebrate their success in the Life Sciences industry.

The LMG Life Sciences Awards research team carefully selected each finalist following a thorough research period which included an analysis of direct submissions and much deliberation. All of the work accepted for shortlisting closed during the research period of January 1 to December 31 2021. The awards do not recognise cases, deals, or transactions completed outside of the research period.

If you have any questions regarding our research process, please contact John Harrison.

The LMG Life Sciences EMEA Award winners were announced on May 12 2022, at a live gala ceremony at the Andaz London. Read about the 2022 EMEA winners here.
