Matheson Ranks in Top 50 for Innovation in Europe
Matheson has once again been ranked in the Financial Times Top 50 Most Innovative Law Firms in Europe. The 'FT50' for 2016 was announced in London on Wednesday, 5 October, with this year's competitive programme drawing entries from 139 law firms and 115 in-house legal teams.
This year, Matheson received special recognition from the FT for its technology and analytical systems, the only Irish law firm to receive an accolade for innovation in technology. Matheson’s Senior Associate Development Programme at Cambridge University was also commended by the FT, as was the firm’s Partner Development Programme which it has developed in collaboration with the world’s number one ranked MBA school, INSEAD.
Commenting on the rankings, Managing Partner Michael Jackson said: “All of the team here at Matheson are delighted that we have been ranked by the Financial Times as one of the Top 50 Most Innovative Law Firms in Europe, reflecting our position as one of Europe’s leading law firms.”
“The use of advanced technology and systems efficiency to deliver the best service for our clients is a priority for all of us at Matheson, and in view of this, we are particularly pleased to be the only Irish law firm to receive recognition from the FT for innovation in this area.
I am also delighted that our commitment to developing and promoting the talented lawyers we have at the firm - through exciting and innovative partnerships with top global institutions such as Cambridge University and INSEAD - has distinguished Matheson in this independent survey of over 139 law firms across Europe.”
