Finalists will be announced this summer. The 2021 Houston Corporate Counsel Awards ceremony is set for Thursday, October 28, 2021 at the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Houston.

The Texas Lawbook is pleased to announce that net income from the Houston Corporate Counsel Awards goes to two extremely good projects: (1) The Street Law program, which allows ACC Houston leaders to expose high school students to the legal system; and (2) The funding of a full-time pro bono, public service and diversity writer for The Texas Lawbook.

This year's award categories include:

  • Lifetime Achievement Award
  • Transaction of the Year

  • Pro Bono & Public Service
  • Legal Innovation (Individual and Corporate Legal Department)
  • Creative Partnership
  • Business Litigation of the Year
  • Rookie of the Year
  • Corporate Legal Department Diversity
  • General Counsel of the Year (Large, Medium & Small/Solo Departments)

The rules for nomination are simple: the corporate counsel being nominated must reside and work in the Houston area and the work for which they are being honored must have occurred in 2020.

Detailed descriptions of each category are on the form as you begin the questionnaire.

Anyone can make a nomination, including outside counsel, in-house colleagues and service providers. However, nominations by law firms MUST be submitted by a lawyer at the firm. Please click here to submit a nomination.

Insider Tip: The more information and details you provide in your submission about the lawyers and legal departments being nominated and the successes they’ve achieved, the more likely it is that they will be selected as finalists. I strongly suggest that you read the profiles of last year’s Houston Corporate Counsel Award recipients to get a better understanding of the information included in the award nominations.

Links to last year’s winners are below.

Note: The information you provide will be used for articles in The Texas Lawbook if the person you nominate is a finalist. Please let us know if you have any questions. My email is My phone is 214.232.6783. Thank you for your interest and participation.
