FT Innovative Lawyers US Launch
November 30th @ the Guggenheim in NYC

The RSG team was in New York for the launch of the FT Innovative Lawyers US.

The publication of the report was accompanied by an intimate party the night before at the Guggenheim. Guests included some of the outstanding legal innovators in the US, such as Harvey Miller from Weil Gotshal and John Schmidt from Mayer Brown, who rubbed shoulders with chairmen from the top US law firms and leading general counsel.

Keynote addresses were made by Mike Skapinker, Editor of the FT’s Special Reports, and Reena SenGupta, Managing Director of RSG Consulting. This was followed by Skadden Arps being given special recognition as the best performing law firm in the FT report. Leah Cooper, Director of Strategy at CPA Global, the project’s sponsor, made the presentation to the firm and revealed the other top four performers in the report.

The RSG team met with a number of senior partners and law firm chairman  to discuss innovation in the US legal market and the upcoming 2011 report. The Innovative Lawyers project is intended to be an annual fixture, to be complemented with a full awards event in the fall of 2011.
