FTIL 2011


FTIL 2011

The theme of the 2011 FT Innovative Lawyers awards was Bold Thinking. The FTIL judges assessed the big ideas at the forefront of the legal profession and the awards and rankings were based on how innovative law firms and in-house teams responded to the structural changes created by the climate of low economic growth.
