Houston – For the fourth consecutive year, the law firm of Thompson & Knight LLP is the Platinum Sponsor for the Houston Business Journal’s (“HBJ”) “Best Corporate Counsel Awards.” The annual event honors outstanding corporate counsel in the greater Houston area.
“Now in its 11th year, the ‘Best Corporate Counsel Awards’ continue to recognize the best and the brightest in the legal profession,” said Chris Schaeper, a Partner in the Firm’s Houston office. “It is an honor for the Firm to be a part of an event that celebrates the dedicated lawyers who serve as Houston-based corporate counsel.”
The nomination process is currently underway and ends June 2. Eligible nominees include any Houston-based attorneys who actively practice inside a corporation or other private sector organization and do not hold themselves out to the public for the practice of law. Award nominations may be submitted by clicking here. Once all nominations are submitted, a panel of judges, consisting of distinguished leaders from the Houston legal community, will carefully select the finalists and ultimately the winners in each category. The winners will be announced at the “Best Corporate Counsel Awards” cocktail and dinner reception on September 29 at Hotel Zaza in Houston.
A special publication highlighting the winners and finalists of the “Best Corporate Counsel Awards” will be published in the HBJ’s October 1 issue. The 2015 “Best Corporate Counsel Awards” is sponsored by the HBJ, Thompson & Knight, Pye Legal Group, and the Association of Corporate Counsel, Houston Chapter.
