Now in its eleventh year of publication, the FT Innovative Lawyers Report has become one of the top legal rankings in Europe and the accompanying awards are widely regarded as the best researched in the market. Over the past decade, it has assessed legal innovation in over 50 different countries from over 400 unique law firms and over 400 company in-house legal departments.
The FT Innovative Lawyers Report represents a unique analysis of the legal industry, assessing lawyers on their innovation both for clients and in their own businesses. We base both the report and awards on thorough research and robust journalism.
This year, the constraint of strict categories was removed from the outset allowing submitters more freedom to choose initiatives from any practice area or part of the business. We will celebrate the standout legal innovations of 2016 at an awards ceremony in London on 5 October.
