Frequently Asked Questions

How do I submit a nomination?

Nominations closed June 30, 2024, and additional submissions are no longer being considered. If you missed this year’s deadline, we encourage you to return when nominations open again for the Everlaw Summit '25 awards.

How are winners selected?

The Everlaw Summit Awards selection process will be purely based on merit and excellence within any given category, rather than the number of nominations a person/organization receives. This process ensures that the judges’ results are truly reflective of the commitment, excellence, and talent of the winner.

Is there a fee to win an Everlaw Award?

No, there is no fee to nominate or win an award.

How are the finalists selected?

Once the nomination period has closed, our Everlaw events team will review all nominations to ensure they are 100% complete. They will then be passed on to our panel of judges, which will deliberate and announce the winners for each category.

Nominees will be asked to provide a professional headshot which will be used in our promotional materials, a complete biography, and a signed nondisclosure agreement.

Can I edit my nomination once it is submitted?

No, nominations cannot be edited once they have been submitted.

When are the winners announced?

Award winners will be announced at the Everlaw Summit October 22-24, 2024 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, CA.

Do nominees have to attend the Everlaw Summit to win an award?

Winners do not have to attend Everlaw Summit to receive their award, but attendance is strongly encouraged. A three-day event ticket will be provided to the winner in each category, along with lodging and travel expenses.

Can more than one nominee from the same company be honored?

You can nominate multiple people from the same company but not in the same category.
