2020 has turbo-charged innovation in the legal profession. To adapt, law firms, corporate legal departments, legaltech providers and the DEI community collaborated in ways we have never before seen.
We are deeply honored to be part of this collaboration -- and to be named by Financial Times as the Most Digital Law Firm in North America of 2020. Our best innovations are a product of listening to our clients and our people. They also reflect the vision of our team, including Cyber & Privacy partner Antony Kim, whom FT cites as one of the top ten Most Innovative Legal Practitioners in North America and Chief Talent Officer Siobhan Handley, selected as one of the top 5 Most Innovative Law Firm Business Leaders.
Over the past five years, FT has named Orrick the Most Innovative Law Firm in North America three times and runner-up twice, including in 2020. This year’s Innovative Lawyers report highlights our focus on regulatory solutions, infrastructure modernization, building a more diverse and inclusive profession and developing the workplace of the future.
We congratulate all of our peers and in-house colleagues in this year’s report. To learn more about innovation in legal service delivery, please visit Orrick’s new platform: The Observatory.
