First Chair is the first organization designed to bring together a community of accomplished attorneys in private practice with their talented in-house peers in order to recognize achievement. There are several reputable organizations that acknowledge the accomplishments of attorneys in private practice. There are also corporate counsel associations that evaluate in-house counsel performance. First Chair is the only organization structured to unite these two communities through the common goals of networking and recognizing the accomplishments of the best and brightest in the legal profession.
The First Chair Awards is an annual selection of in-house counsel who have, through their hard work and innovation, made significant contributions to the legal community. Our award program honors the top in-house counsel for their accomplishments in the past year in a wide range of categories.
