The Financial Times is pleased to invite submissions from law firms in Europe for FT Innovative Lawyers 2010.
Now in its fifth year, the FT Innovative Lawyers report is one of the top legal rankings in Europe, and the accompanying awards are widely regarded as the best researched in the market. The report presents a unique analysis of the legal industry and is the only ranking of lawyers by innovation. Both the report and awards are based on thorough research and robust journalism.
The theme of this year’s FT Innovative Lawyers Report is collaboration. The credit crisis and recession have had a profound impact on the legal profession, changing the way in which clients and lawyers work together. The forefront of innovation in the legal sector will reflect new ways of working, and in particular, new forms of collaboration.
FT Innovative Lawyers is a joint venture with RSG Consulting, a specialist legal research company. The intensive research process includes expert commentators, market surveys and in-depth interviews with referees. In 2009, RSG researchers conducted more than 500 in-depth interviews to reach the final rankings.
The report will be distributed in the FT to the newspaper’s 400,000 readers across Europe. The awards ceremony in London will coincide with the publication of the report in October.
