Ellex Is Shortlisted for the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers 2017 Awards
Ellex, the circle of three leading Baltic law firms, has been shortlisted for the exclusive Financial Times (FT) Innovative Lawyers report and awards. This year Ellex is the only law firm from the Baltic region to be shortlisted among other European law firms and in-house legal departments. The Innovative Lawyers Report has become one of the top legal rankings across the globe and the awards are based on the best research on the market.
The European report will investigate two of the critical challenges facing the legal profession: how to uphold the rule of law and improve access to justice; and how to achieve more effective collaborations between law firms, their clients and other parties.
FT Innovative Lawyers is a unique programme that assesses lawyers on their innovation for clients and in their own businesses. The programme consists of rankings and awards, based on independent research from RSG Consulting and robust journalism from the FT. The results are announced at an awards event, and the rankings are published in both print and online as an FT special report.
The FT Innovative Lawyers programme was established in Europe in 2006, launched in the US and North America in 2010, and in Asia-Pacific in 2014. Over the past 11 years it has covered legal industry innovation in 50 different countries from over 400 law firms and over 458 company in-house legal departments.
The award ceremony will take place in London on 4 October 2017.
