FT Innovative Lawyers Europe 2022 is a ranking, report and awards scheme for lawyers based in the region, which is celebrating the most innovative legal work from law firms and in-house legal teams operating across the region. The FT and its research partner, RSGI, have devised a unique methodology to rank lawyers on innovation. This year, the FT annual ranking of law firms is introducing a new, broader range of indicators to assess the success of commercial law firms. Innovation is still a key benchmark, but scores for people strategies, financial growth and profitability over three years, digital maturity, and client mentions have been added.
