Mills & Reeve commended in FT Innovative Lawyers 2016

This year the firm has been commended for its work on connected and autonomous vehicle technology. Judges were impressed by how Mills & Reeve highlighted key issues around the new technology and came up with solutions to advance development and inform new regulation in the UK and Europe.

The FT Innovative Lawyers Awards is one of the top legal rankings in Europe. It covers in-depth the work of individual Europe-based law firms and their contribution to the wider economy, highlighting fresh thinking and innovative practice. This year the awards received over 600 submissions with 30 per cent more law firms submitting, making competition fiercer than ever. 

This accolade comes just a week after we won most innovative workplace initiative at The Lawyer'sBusiness Leadership Awards for our new London office Monument Place. The judges were impressed at how the firm used the move to completely reimagine its working environment with a host of innovative changes designed to promote agile working. 

Stephen Hamilton, Mills & Reeve partner, said: “Connected and Autonomous Vehicles are a topic that encapsulates innovative technology and forward thinking. We have delved into regulation and the legal framework required to make sure this exciting new technology can be exploited to its fullest and enjoyed by as many people as possible.”
