Taylor Vinters was highly commended at the FT Innovative Lawyers Awards Europe 2016, in the company of Magic Circle law firms.

We joined over 400 representatives from across the legal services sector at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 5 October, at the Natural History Museum in London.

Our novel model of incubating, investing and supporting the development of legal technology such as ThoughtRiver was highly commended in the ‘Innovation in technology and data analytics‘ category.

Matt Meyer, CEO of Taylor Vinters said: “It is always satisfying to take part in the FT Innovative Lawyer Awards. Aside from a chance to shout about some of our projects at the sharp end of legal services, it’s an opportunity to hear about the cutting edge in what is a dynamic and exciting sector.

“Our incubation model for ThoughtRiver is novel in the legal services market and we believe that this willingness to collaborate and challenge our own business model is essential to keep pace. Whatever business commentators want to say about legal services, the industry is experiencing a sea change in attitude and activity that I have no doubt will deliver better outcomes for clients, rewarding careers for young lawyers and ensure that we continue to build valuable legal services businesses with strong futures.

“As business leaders we can build the right environment for innovation but it still depends on individuals having the ideas and the drive to deliver improvement and change. I commend all the winners for that and I’m very proud of my team for embracing innovation at Taylor Vinters.”
