Financial Times Innovative Lawyers includes Cyprus law firm AMC amongst most innovative in Europe

In their Innovative Lawyers Europe special report, the Financial Times have included Antoniou McCollum & Co. (AMC) amongst the most innovative law firms in Europe.

AMC was commended in the category Challenging traditional models, with Gunnercooke winning in that category at the FT Innovative Lawyers awards held on 13 October 2022 in London. We congratulate Gunnercooke for winning in this category and other shortlisted firms Chronos Law, Cleveland & Co, La Scala Società, William Fry, Eskariam and 360 Law Group.

As the Financial Times note in their special report:

“In the FT’s Innovative Lawyers 2022 report for Europe, the reporting and case studies feature developments that are changing the legal industry against a backdrop of tumult and conflict. Often, the legal industry itself plays a transformative role. In Ukraine, lawyers are defiant in preparing for a period of rebuilding and renewing — as well as potential reparations claims. Whether based in Kyiv or outside the country, they describe a positive future in which reconstruction could involve working with multinational clients, in sectors from agriculture and retail to artificial intelligence and military technology.

Across Europe, law firms have been reporting record revenues, thanks to bumper M&A deals, and record partner profits. The outlook, however, is bleaker as economies face recession. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, much has changed, thanks largely to the pandemic, new attitudes to work, and geopolitical crises. This is reflected in the articles that follow. Law firm leaders acknowledge that their staff and their clients want to see changes in the way firms are run. To help explore those changes, our annual table ranking commercial law firms in Europe has been significantly expanded and updated. Innovation is still key, but other measures are reflected, too — from human resources strategies and digitisation to revenues and profitability.”

We are immensely proud to be the first Cyprus law firm to be recognised by FT Innovative Lawyers.
