The Rochester Business Journal announced Friday that it will partner with The Daily Record on a new awards event—the Corporate Counsel Awards.
The Daily Record—the Rochester Business Journal’s sister publication—has long recognized leaders in the legal industry as Western New York’s authority on legal news and is adding the new awards event to the already-successful Attorney of the Year and Excellence in Law programs.
Many of Rochester’s leading businesses employ corporate counsel who work tirelessly to make sure the companies they represent are able to navigate complicated legal issues on a daily basis. The Corporate Counsel Awards will recognize this important group of attorneys.
The Rochester Business Journal—Western New York’s authority on business news—will partner with The Daily Record to celebrate the honorees with the local business community. Winners will be recognized at NYDailyRecord.com and RBJ.net and the awards magazine will be inserted in both publications.
“The Daily Record and the Rochester Business Journal will combine forces and recognize Rochester’s outstanding Corporate Counsel for the critical role they play in making their companies successful,” Daily Record and RBJ Publisher Suzanne Fischer-Huettner said. “The individuals who will be honored have accomplished great things professionally and are committed to giving back to the Rochester community.”
Nominations can be made online at nydailyrecord.com/corporate-counsel-awards. The deadline for nominations is Feb. 9. Nominees must be general counsels or chief legal officers and their company must be headquartered in western New York or the nominee must be working primarily in western New York.
Winners will be honored at a dinner at the Hyatt Regency Rochester on Wednesday, March 28.
