Aequo has been shortlisted for the prestigious Financial Times (FT) Innovative Lawyers Awards Europe 2018. Aequo is the only Ukrainian law firm that has been noted by the ranking of the most innovative firms in Europe for the fourth consecutive year.

“We are honoured to be shortlisted for such an influential and hugely competitive award along with the leading law firms in Europe. Innovation is one of Aequo’s strategic pillars and we strive to embed it in everything we do. We are very grateful to our dedicated clients and talented team,” comments Denis Lysenko, Aequo’s managing partner.

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 2018 Awards Ceremony will take place on 4th October 2018 at the Natural History Museum in London. Now in its twelfth 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.
