Celebrate legal innovation
The Financial Times is delighted to announce that the seventh Asia-Pacific Innovative Lawyers Awards will again be held as a live virtual event.
The event is complimentary to attend and we invite law firms and clients, in-house legal teams and legal service providers alike to join us and find out more about what makes an innovative lawyer in the current climate.
The Awards will provide the opportunity to network virtually with lawyers and business people across the region, and will be a chance to celebrate, not just for the award winners, but for everyone who is passionate about driving innovation in the legal sector to bring good to business and society, particularly in these difficult times.
