The Bar Association of San Francisco is proud to launch the In-House Counsel Awards in 2021. Join us as we shine the spotlight on in-house attorneys working for companies in the Bay Area. We will highlight new emerging legal talent, both individuals and legal departments. And we will recognize the work of in-house attorneys whose talents have spanned their entire career.

Update, December 15, 2020
The awards ceremony was originally scheduled for August 19, 2020, but was postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions on holding large in-person gatherings. The ceremony will take place in 2021. Please watch this space for a new date which will be coming soon.
