Legal 30 under 40: last chance to nominate

The nominations deadline for our sister title pfm's search for tomorrow’s superstar private equity lawyers is 31 May.

Our sister title Private Funds Management is about to conclude its search for the rising stars of the private equity legal market, with 31 May nominations deadline just days away.

Thirty under 40 was launched in 2015 and the final list included an impressive bunch: 27 had been named partner and four were already serving as heads of co-heads of their departments. They had all made names for themselves by working with big-name clients and effective thought leadership.

Three months ago we launched our latest search for the newest rising stars and since then have been asking industry participants, trusted contacts and the law firms themselves to nominate private funds lawyers under the age of 40. Now there’s just five days left to submit your nominations.

Send nominations to by May 31 outlining in 350 words why the lawyer is worthy of inclusion. Nominations should also include the name of a junior lawyer from a rival firm. Lawyers must be under 40 on 1 October 2017.
