We need a rewrite! 2013 FT Innovative Lawyers – Keynote Speech Events 04 Oct 2013
With confidence, collaboration and cross-border deals at the heart of this year’s FT Innovative Lawyers US report (our most thorough and robust analysis of innovative lawyering to date), it has become clear that innovative thinking is holding its own despite the looming shadow of the credit crisis.
At the FT Innovative Lawyers Europe Awards last night, Mark Harris took to the stage to accept his special achievement award. With wit and warmth, he debated the conflicts associated with growth, efficiency and personal lives. Mark urged guests to focus on transforming work behaviour and environment, to recognise that “bigger is not better. Better is better!” With the industry changing at a rapid pace, Mark stressed the importance of the business of law, asking challenging questions and coming up with inventive answers.
