The Financial Times and RSG Consulting are now inviting law firms and legal service providers to submit to the 2017 FT Innovative Lawyers report and awards for Asia-Pacific.

This year we are taking a different approach to the categories in Asia-Pacific. Law firms are invited to submit innovations from any practice area or business function to three broad sections: Legal Expertise, Business of Law, and Social Responsibility. The ranking and award categories will be determined after all the submissions have been received and researched.

The deadline for submissions is 24 February 2017.
