The Financial Times is delighted to announce that the fourth Asia-Pacific Innovative Lawyers Awards will be held in Hong Kong on 1 June 2017.
When FT Innovative Lawyers was established in Europe eleven years ago, it sought to break with the usual criteria of measuring lawyers by revenues, profits or deal sizes. Instead, it aims to uncover the real value that lawyers deliver to business and reward the lawyers consistently furthering the interests of their clients, their own firms and the profession itself.
The 2017 FT Asia-Pacific Innovative Lawyers Awards will celebrate the most innovative legal work from lawyers working in law firms and in-house at companies across the region. This year’s awards will cover law firms operating in Australia, China and Hong Kong, India, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and the members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam.
We will recognise the law firms behind the most transformational transactions in the region, the in-house legal teams that are adding the most value to business, and the most innovative individuals in the industry.
The FT Asia-Pacific Innovative Lawyers has grown in 2017 and received over 400 individual submissions from 68 different law firms. Research partner, RSG Consulting seeks feedback from hundreds of clients, experts and lawyers to assess and rank these submissions.
Join us at the event and meet some of the most innovative lawyers in the Asia-Pacific region, the firms at the forefront of innovation, and the GCs and in-house teams that are driving forward change in their own businesses.
