2022 Dye & Durham Irish Law Awards Finalists Announced

The finalists for the Dye & Durham Irish Law Awards 2022 have been announced! Celebrating their 10th Year, The Irish Law Awards are delighted to have Dye & Durham on board as the headline sponsor for the 10th Year of their annual event. The Dye & Durham Irish Law Awards will continue to honour and establish the best of the best in the legal sector in Ireland, commend the achievements of lawyers, and recognise those who have dedicated their lives to serving in the legal profession.

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner hosted by Ivan Yates, on the evening of Friday 28th October in the Aviva Stadium. (tickets on sale here)

With over 400 entries for this year’s awards, the competition was stronger than ever. After intense deliberation from the judges, over 180 companies have made it as finalists with a possibility of winning an award this year. New categories such as Banking & Finance Legal Team / Lawyer of the Year, Pharma / Life Science Law Firm / Lawyer of the Year, and ADR Firm Team / Lawyer of the Year (sponsored by Ormond Meeting Rooms) have been introduced and have proven to be highly competitive.

Dye & Durham is delighted to be sponsoring this year’s Irish Law Awards and would like to wish the best of luck to all the finalists. We look forward to celebrating the very best of Ireland’s legal profession at the Aviva at the end of October.
