As a reminder, a lawyer cannot be a candidate for both Best Lawyers and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch simultaneously.

If the lawyer you wish to nominate has been in practice {{ IsInternational ? "fewer than 8" : "less than 10" }} years, we recommend you submit them as a candidate for Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch. If the lawyer has been in practice more than {{ IsInternational ? "8" : "10" }} years, we recommend you submit them as a candidate for our traditional Best Lawyers publication.
