Innovative Law Firms Embrace Technology as Industry Evolves

As sponsor of the Financial Times North America Innovative Lawyers report, HighQ congratulates each of the 25 law firms recognized as leaders in innovation, which is an honor earned by each firm for the ways in which they are “thinking differently about their businesses,” and “taking the long-term strategic view on technology, research and skills,” FT reported.

“The top legal firms in North America are tuned in to the importance of innovation in the legal marketplace, which continues to evolve as new technologies enhance and reshape the delivery of legal services worldwide,” said Ajay Patel, co-founder and chief executive officer of HighQ.

Evidence of this evolution is demonstrated by the fact that 16 of the 25 firms honored by FT are leveraging HighQ’s collaboration software as a service and content management solution with clients. HighQ was also pleased that Financial Times and candidate firms utilized a fully-branded, dedicated instance of its HighQ Collaborate to facilitate submission questionnaires using the iSheets module.

“We see some common characteristics amongst the most innovative firms – they are redefining their service models to meet client expectations, they are leveraging technology to become more efficient in the delivery of legal services, and most importantly, they are investing in and embracing a culture of change and innovation,” Patel said. “These law firms are leading the way with clients who are becoming increasingly focused on embracing technologies and systems to drive outcomes that improve their businesses.”

“Innovation is critical for the legal industry’s future,” Patel continued. “We congratulate the winners for their leadership in this important area and are proud to sponsor these prestigious awards.”

FT Innovative Lawyers North America 2017 is a rankings report and awards for North America-based lawyers. The Financial Times uses a unique methodology to rank innovation by lawyers and law firms. More than 500 submissions and nominations were received this year and the entries were judged for originality, leadership and impact in innovation.
