Lawyer Monthly Legal Awards 2022 3 INTRODUCTION AWARDS 2022 Welcome to the 2022 edition of the Lawyer Monthly Legal Awards. The Lawyer Monthly Legal Awards are an annual review of the barristers, in-house counsel and private practitioners whose expertise and diligence have allowed them to stand out among their peers. With a close eye on the latest developments in the legal sphere, the team at Lawyer Monthly are well placed to identify those lawyers who have begun to make waves and give them the recognition they are due. Each award recipient is a leader in their field with an accompanying history of achievements. The 2022 edition is our biggest set of awards yet, with winners drawn from all regions and all walks of life. Every sector of law is represented in this celebration of the best and brightest innovators working in the profession today. Among this year’s highest-profile winners is Ece Dayıoğlu, a lawyer upholding a family legacy of excellence and Armstrong Teasdale partners Zane Shihab and Peter Kohl, who discuss their career trajectory and the shape of sports law heading into the new year. Also featured is Anthony Munday, an acclaimed mediator with a unique dispute resolution methodology. Exclusive interviews with each of these winners (and many, many more besides) can be found in the pages of this new edition. We at Lawyer Monthly are proud to present this special publication.
