23 October 2009

As was published in the FT Supplement (23 October 09), the FT listed the Top 50 FT’s Groundbreaking Ranking of Europe’s most Innovative Law Firms.

ACUMEN BUSINESS LAW was ranked at number 37, higher than Lovells, Shoosmith, Pinsent & Masons, SJ Berwin and many other such top City & International Law Firms. See the rankings here.

The FT also ranked the Top 14 FT’s Innovative Management of Law Firms. Here, ACUMEN BUSINESS LAW was ranked fourth(!) in the highest “Standout” category. This accolade puts us above Clifford Chance (the number one Law Firm in the UK & Europe), Freshfields and Allan & Overy (top 10 Law Firms) –

The FT wrote “More than 600 submissions were received from law firms across Europe and the US, as well as from legal teams working in top European companies. More than 500 extensive telephone and face to face qualitative, in-depth interviews with lawyers, referees and expert commentators were conducted”.

What a great accolade to ACUMEN BUSINESS LAW.
