Matthew has been named as a finalist in the Australian Law Awards for the Indigenous Leader of the Year.
Now in its 22nd year, the premier awards program identifies the leading legal professionals and firms in the legal industry across Australia and showcases the depth of their talent, hard work, and dedication, while affirming the sector’s essential role in supporting the expansion of Australia.
Matthew Karakoulakis, founder and lawyer at AMK Law said, “This particular category means a lot. To be seen as a finalist for Indigenous Leader of the Year means a lot to me. Especially because a big part of my work is to empower my clients and First Nations businesses by succeeding through entrepreneurialism, innovation and inspiring the next generation of all Australians through the law.
From here, the winner will be announced in the next week. Regardless of whether or not it progresses any further to being the winner, I’m incredibly proud to have been selected as an Indigenous Leader of the Year finalist.” he added.
The awards recognise those who work tirelessly to ensure the legal industry thrives and succeeds, while shining a light on the achievements of managing partners, general counsel, barristers, legal scholars, and the rising stars of tomorrow who are propelling the industry forward.
This year, Lawyers Weekly received 848 submissions, out of which 370 finalists have been chosen to battle it out for awards across 41 categories.
Winners will be announced Friday 12 August 2022. The full list of finalists can be viewed here.
