The General Counsel Award is awarded to legal professionals who have distinguished themselves through their determination, resolve, and achievements. Their commitment to excellence within their profession, organization, and community has been instrumental to the success of their company.

Every year, the National Diversity Council compiles a list of the Top 50 General Counsels to feature the highest caliber of executives within the law. These are the most prominent leaders that have reached the top of their profession by being effective front-runners in their organization.
