The IDEX Legal Awards (ILA’s) are focused on being, at the very least, on par with the leading global legal awards. Our vision is to become the de facto sign of recognition and achievement for the legal fraternity in India and beyond. The awards are unique in clearly identifying in-house counsel and law firms who excel in their specific roles and industries. Our primary aim is to be credible and impartial facilitators, recognising lawyers for their demonstrable achievements across the full spectrum of their responsibility.
