FT Innovative Lawyers 2013 Praises L&E Global

For the second year in a row, the Financial Times has recognized L&E GLOBAL’s exceptional legal services and ranked L&E GLOBAL in its annual Innovative Lawyer Report. The Report recognized L&E GLOBAL as “an unusually focused network of employment boutiques.”


L&E GLOBAL has been “Commended” for Innovation in International Strategy.  The Report further states “… only lawyers and firms that demonstrate excellence and innovation are considered for inclusion.  They also need to transcend the boundaries of everyday legal work.”

A record 140 law firms entered the competition, reflecting the striking awareness of innovation in the global legal profession. Firms are increasingly willing to embrace change, in-house counsel have come of  age, and new players have entered the market and are prepared to stay.

Stephan Swinkels, Executive Director of L&E Global, said, “We are extremely proud to be ranked in the important International Strategy category of the FT Innovative Lawyers Report. It is confirmation that we are pursuing an effective strategy that benefits our member firms, prepares us for th future, and enables us to compete with the full-service, global law firms”.
