Synch one of the highly commended law firms at the prestigious Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Awards Europe 2018
We are proud to announce that Synch has been appointed as one of the most innovative law firms in Europe in the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Awards event in London on October 4, 2018. Synch was awarded for its digital legal service platform WeSynch as highly commended: “The WeSynch subscription service gives start-ups affordable access to digital legal services, including know-how databases, legal document automation, virtual data rooms, and a range of compliance, governance and finance tools.”
“We recognise the need to simplify how legal advice is provided. I’m a believer in modernising the legal system, organization and way of working. Synch is focusing on creating a culture of innovation and developing an innovation strategy across the firm’s business. One of the firm’s great achievements is the empowerment of its employees to innovate. This approach turns traditional hierarchies on their head and empowers young lawyers and other employees to improve and change the business processes.”, says Jim Runsten, CEO.
This was the second time Synch was nominated as legal innovator in Europe, the first time was in 2015 only a year after Synch started its business. The Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Awards started in 2006. This year more than 800 applicants from 87 European law firms and companies offering legal services were evaluated. See the results here.
