European law firms interested in being recognized by the Financial Times for innovation need to submit their entries by Friday, April 12 2013.
Private practice award categories include: legal expertise (corporate, finance, dispute resolution, private wealth); client service; value resourcing; corporate strategy; legal industry pioneers; and innovative individual.
For full details on how to submit, see the submission guidelines.
First published in 2006, the Innovative Lawyers survey is a joint venture between the Financial Times and legal research company RSG Consulting.
The report recognizes market leaders in the legal industry by measuring and rewarding uniqueness and value delivered to clients – rather than conventional indicators such as size, revenue and profit.
As well as completed survey forms, the rankings are determined by more than 500 interviews with referees and expert commentators.
An awards ceremony will be held in London in October 2013 to coincide with publication of the rankings.
