Innovative Lawyers Europe 2021 is a rankings report and awards for lawyers based in the Europe region. Shortlists for the awards comprise the top ranked submissions in each section of the report.
The FT and its research partner RSG Consulting have devised a unique methodology to rank lawyers on innovation. Law firms and company in-house legal teams are invited to submit their innovations. These are then thoroughly researched through telephone interviews, questionnaires and reviews. Market experts are also called in to assess the submissions and the research.
With a new approach to the research this year, the 2021 report will highlight the firms and in-house teams who are digitally advanced and using innovative approaches to deliver exceptional value to business and society. The report will also highlight outstanding leaders and individuals bringing innovation to the practice of law.
Each entry is scored out of 10 points for originality, leadership and impact, for a maximum score of 30. They are then benchmarked against each other to arrive at the final rankings and shortlists.
The big picture, not just the individual strands of the business you work in
And build relationships with some of the biggest names in your industry
New approaches and strategies to help win market share
