FT Innovative Lawyers Awards

FT Innovative Lawyers Awards 2012
Thursday 4th October 2012 | Natural History Museum, London

The 6th Annual FT Innovative Lawyers Awards took place on 4 October 2012 at the Natural History Museum, London.

Now in its seventh 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. It presents a unique analysis of the legal industry and is the only ranking of lawyers by innovation. We base both the report and awards on thorough research and robust journalism.
