PDI Awards 2016: Keep the votes coming!

Our highly popular annual awards have got off to a flying start, with around 1,000 respondents already making their views known at the time of writing.

The PDI Awards 2016 are gaining traction fast, with around 1,000 respondents so far having cast votes in more than 40 different categories. To ensure that your verdicts on the industry’s best performers are taken into account, please click HERE.

Your votes could truly make all the difference. A quick skim through the categories as things stand reveals some extremely close races developing.

For example, in the Asia Pacific Lender of the Year category, the signs are there of a tense battle between Adamas Asset Management, Barings, KKR and SSG Capital Management. In the Americas section, Barings, GSO Capital Partners, Lone Star Funds and Oaktree Capital Management are tussling for the Fundraising of the Year accolade.

Currently almost neck and neck in the Europe Law Firm of the Year grouping are Dechert, Paul Hastings, Proskauer and Ropes & Gray; while in the Global Newcomer of the Year category, a four-way fight is taking place between Adams Street Partners, CORDET Capital, Northleaf Capital and Owl Rock Capital Partners.

A quick reminder of the rules: votes are only accepted from your company email address; you may not vote for yourself or your own firm; you may only vote once; and you are not required to vote in all categories, but we encourage you to do so in as many as possible.

Voting closes at midnight PST on Thursday, 5 January 2017. But why not set aside 20 minutes now and make a difference to the outcomes!
