The Financial Times is delighted to announce that the seventh Asia-Pacific Innovative Lawyers Awards was again held as a live virtual event.
The event is complimentary to view on demand and we encourage law firms and clients, in-house legal teams and legal service providers alike to watch and find out more about what makes an innovative lawyer in the current climate.
The Awards provided the opportunity 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.
