FT Innovative Lawyer Awards, London, 8 October

Last night at FT Innovative Lawyer Awards in London the breadth of real innovation was inspiring, both in law firms and in-house law. Well-deserved recognition of GC/master innovator Rosemary Martin of Vodafone GC, and also of Reckitt Benckiser (now RB) as most innovative in-house legal team, led by the exceptional Bill Mordan (an American, I note proudly). Snam, a Global Counsel Leaders Circle member, tied for a close 2nd place for Innovation in Operational Change. Kudos to Snam GC Marco Reggiani and his team!
