DLA Piper awarded for client services innovation
14th October 2013
DLA Piper has been crowned 'Most Innovative Law Firm in Client Services' at the Financial Times' Innovative Lawyers 2013 Awards for its dynamic in-house lawyer network WIN (What In-house Lawyers Need).
The national programme, which is led by Richard Norman, head of Litigation & Regulatory for DLA Piper's Sheffield office, makes key legal and career development training available to the firm's clients through events, tools and forums which address the technical, commercial and personal aspects of working in-house. Richard Norman said: "I am thrilled that our work over the past two years has been recognised at the FT Innovative Lawyers Awards. We have seen our registrations for the programme triple in the last 12 months, with hundreds of clients attending events organised through the initiative." The WIN programme has also been short listed in the Law Firm Innovation category of the British Legal Awards.
