The Rubie Awards

06 January 2020

In 2019 we launched The Rubies, an annual award ceremony that recognises DWF people across the globe who have made a significant contribution during the last year.

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. 

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.

Awards categories:

  • CEO's Award
  • Employee of the Year (Client Services)
  • Employee of the Year (Business Services)
  • Innovation Mind-set of the Year
  • Rising Star of the Year
  • Newcomer of the Year
  • Emerging Talent
  • Role Model of the Year
  • Foundation Award
  • Community Award
