The Rubie Awards enable our people to identify amongst their colleagues, those who have not only inspired but who have gone above and beyond, as we collectively work toward our purpose of transforming legal services.
"I am really pleased to announce the launch of The Rubies, our first global DWF event to recognise the significant contributions that have been made to the business during the last year.
"It's been an exciting year for our business and we've been making great progress. It is more important now than ever that we take time to pause and reflect on our achievements, recognising our people at every level who are contributing to the ongoing success of DWF. – Andrew Leaitherland, CEO
Developed by a steering group of people from across our business, the award categories ensure that everyone across the business, whether they are at the start of their career or are a longstanding team member, has the opportunity to be recognised. Our values sit at the heart of each award and nominations are made on a global scale.
Our 2019 ceremony, hosted by TV star Natasha Kaplinsky saw over 200 people from across the globe celebrate at our black tie gala dinner held in Manchester, UK. Congratulations to our winners.
