Apply Now for First Industry Award to Recognize Law Firm Growth: Law Firm 500Law Firm 500 is a prestigious, first-of-its-kind award recognizing fast growing law firms of all sizes. It celebrates velocity, innovation, and the entrepreneurial spirit of law firms measured by revenue growth over the past three years.

Law Firm 500 is similar to the Inc. 5000, which recognizes fast growing, independently owned companies in the U.S. The difference is that while the Inc. 5000 recognizes all businesses, Law Firm 500 is solely for law firms.

The qualifications are simple:

2012 Minimum Revenue: $50,000

2015 Minimum Revenue: $500,000

Operate an independently owned and operated, for-profit law firm in the U.S.

Being recognized as a Law Firm 500 recipient will help you differentiate yourself with clients, prospects, referral partners and in your community. Each firm named to the Law Firm 500 will receive a permanent award, a press release to use in your local area and a logo to use on your website and marketing materials.

The award is being sponsored by several leading legal industry companies, including Thomson Reuters, Avvo, Affinity Consulting Group, and more, including The Rainmaker Institute. We believe an award recognizing growth and efficiency in delivering legal services is long overdue for the our industry.

Award recipients will be honored on October 13-15, 2016, at the Law Firm 500 Award Gala and Conference in Key Biscayne, Florida, at the Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne.

The deadline for submitting an application is September 15, 2016. There is no cost to apply and your revenues will not be published. If you meet the requirements, I strongly encourage you to apply. You can do so at lawfirm500.com.
