The firm obtains its best position to date in the Financial Times ranking: recognized as one of the leading European firms (outside the UK), as one of the top firms for Innovation in Legal Expertise: Creating a New Standard, and ranked in the top 30 for most innovative European firms

RCD has once again taken its place among the most innovative European law firms, as shown by its spot in the Financial Times’ FT – Innovative Lawyers Europe 2019 ranking. This ranking is one of the most highly-regarded in the sector, which features the most disruptive firms and uses both legal and management categories to recognize firms for their innovative projects. The results were announced last week at the awards dinner in London.

In its 14th edition, Financial Times has recognized the pure innovativeness of the projects submitted by RCD in various categories, highlighting three of them—Innovation in Legal Expertise: Creating a New Standard, Business of Law: Technology; and Business of Law: Data, Knowledge and Intelligence—which has led to RCD being shortlisted for Most Innovative Law Firm in Europe (outside the UK). This is a real accomplishment for the firm, having gone up against competitors from all across Europe.

RCD is a leader in the field of innovation. The firm became a pioneer in 2003 by creating the first legal practice area focused on innovative and entrepreneurial projects. After 15 years, RCD has become one of the leading firms in the field thanks to its strong track record, sector expertise, foresight for innovative solutions, and one of the biggest teams in Europe fully focused on this practice area, with over 50 professionals. All of this has led to RCD advising on over 1,000 innovative projects.

With these results, the firm has now been featured in the past four editions of the Financial Times FT - Innovative Lawyers European ranking for its innovativeness.
