The Orange County Business Journal is currently accepting nominations for The Fourth Annual GENERAL COUNSEL AWARDS. The program is designed to recognize the significant role that in-house counsel plays in the success of businesses within our community. Nominees must be a general counsel based in Orange County, except nominees for the Rising Star category, who may be GCs or other senior in-house legal professionals. This is the perfect opportunity to recognize clients or business associates who have distinguished themselves through their determination, resolve and achievements. Self-nominations welcome.
Selection CriteriaOur primary aim is to recognize attorneys for demonstrable achievements across the full spectrum of in-house responsibility, not simply those who have acted on high-profile transactions. All nominees must demonstrate outstanding character, ethics and integrity.
