FT North America Innovative Lawyers Report 2014

FTILNA2014 215x276 FT North America Innovative Lawyers Report 2014

The  2014 FT Innovative Lawyers Report for North America has now been published! This year we expanded the report’s scope to include Canada and Mexico, both reflecting the important role these economies play in global business. We received submissions and nominations for a greater number of law firms and in-house legal departments than ever before, increasing the competitiveness of the rankings.

The report publication followed our first awards event in the region, held at the New York Public Library. The 2014 report recognises lawyers as the architects of change in a rapidly evolving world, bringing value to their clients not only through their legal expertise, but in the way they are reinventing service delivery models. The role of the lawyer is broadening as they are ever more involved in strategy and policy, managing the burden of increased regulation and harnessing the transformative power of technologies. The report recognises lawyers at the heart of a profession in transition.

Well done to all the firms and in-house teams who achieved a ranking in the report and our Special Achievement Award winner, Robert Dell, Latham & Watkins. You can read or download the full report at  FT North America Innovative Lawyers Report 2014 .
