FT Innovative Lawyers North America 2015

Overview

The 2015 FT Innovative Lawyers North America Awards Program marks the sixth year of the program in this region. New for this year was research into how lawyers are addressing their clients' business challenges, including how firms are improving their approach to talent development, reforming service delivery and how they help clients respond to compliance, often with technological solutions. There was also a look at expertise such as how lawyers help clients develop their businesses, how they protect them through litigation or dispute resolution, and the way they can facilitate access to finance. Leading firms and in-house teams across North America were assessed and the winners and nominees were recognized during an awards dinner held Dec. 7, 2015 at the New York Public Library.

Integreon is proud to sponsor the FT Innovative Lawyers Awards Program and Report across North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific in association with the FT and its research partner, RSG Consulting.
