09/10/2018

Allen & Overy has been named as the ‘Most Innovative Law Firm in Europe’ for a record sixth time at the prestigious Financial Times Innovative Lawyer Awards. This is the second time Allen & Overy has won the accolade in consecutive years.

In addition, the awards ceremony saw Jonathan Brayne, founder and chairman of ‘Fuse’ — the tech innovation space launched in September 2017, where tech companies, Allen & Overy lawyers, technologists and their clients can collaborate to explore, develop and test legal, regulatory and deal-related solutions — recognised jointly as ‘Legal Innovator of the Year’. Commenting on his accolade, Jonathan said: “Innovation demands two things: a brilliant idea and then the ability to implement that idea successfully in your organisation. My contribution has been to help implement, but that can’t happen without the spark. So the real winners of this award are my friends and colleagues at Allen & Overy who have provided the spark.”

Patrick Mischo, Senior Partner of the Luxembourg office, adds his congratulations: “I am thrilled to hear of the international recognition of Allen & Overy as the most innovative law firm in Europe. Here in Luxembourg, we combine an openness to advanced technology with a “can-do” attitude. We are currently working towards exciting new technological solutions for the Alternative Investment Funds sector. Watch this space!”
