Aequo has been shortlisted for the prestigious Financial Times (FT) Innovative Lawyers 2020 in the category ‘Most innovative law firm in Continental Europe’. Aequo is the only Ukrainian law firm that has been noted by the ranking of the most innovative firms in Europe for the sixth consecutive year.
Since it was established, the FT report has sought to break with the usual criteria of measuring lawyers by revenues, profits, or deal sizes. Instead, it aims to uncover the real value that lawyers deliver to business and recognise the lawyers consistently furthering the interests of their clients, their own firms, and the profession itself.
The FT Innovative Lawyers 2020 Awards Ceremony will take place on 1 October in a virtual format. To register for the event, please visit the Innovative Lawyers awards site. Now in its fourteenth year of publication, the FT Innovative Lawyers Report has become one of the top legal rankings in Europe and the accompanying awards are widely regarded as the best researched in the market. Over the past decade, it has assessed legal innovation in over 50 different countries from over 400 unique law firms and over 400 company in-house legal departments.
Last year, Anna Babych, Aequo’s partner, won the Legal Innovator of the year award at the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Awards Europe 2019, while Aequo has been named among the Top 20 most innovative law firms in Europe.
