Akin Gump Shortlisted for FT Innovative Lawyers Awards Europe 2016

(London) – Akin Gump is pleased to announce that Financial Times has placed the firm on its shortlist for recognition in its 2016 FT Europe Innovative Lawyers contest.

The Innovative Lawyers report featuring the recognized firms and their work will be launched at a dinner to be held on October 5 at the Natural History Museum in London.

The Innovative Lawyers reports published by Financial Times also cover the North American and Asia-Pacific regions, featuring innovation in private practice along two lines: “the legal solutions lawyers create to deliver transformational value to their clients” and “the business of running a law firm and how those legal solutions are delivered to clients.”

Akin Gump’s groundbreaking work on behalf of clients has been featured in each of these reports over the years, including, most recently, in the Most Innovative North American Law Firms 2015 competition, the results of which were announced in December of last year. At that time, the firm was accorded “highly commended” and “standout” recognitions in the categories “Compliance & technology” and “Protecting clients’ business,” respectively. (Learn more here.)
