For the second time, Missouri Lawyers Media will celebrate attorneys, firms and businesses from around the state with Top Legal Innovation Awards in recognition of their progressive work to drive new practice areas, services and business strategies.
Missouri Lawyers Media launched the awards in 2018 to recognize honorees in three categories:
- Emerging practice areas, saluting firms or attorneys who identify and support a practice area in an emerging legal field and are among the first to develop expertise
- Law firm business changes, recognizing business strategies that demonstrate innovation and relevance to meet the changing needs of clients
- New services or products that support Missouri’s legal community, recognizing innovative and high-utility tools that assist the work of an attorney.
The 25 honorees for 2019 include attorneys, firms and organizations that have developed new technologies that simplify and enhance the work of attorneys. Missouri Lawyers Media will celebrate the honorees at a reception in December in St. Louis. Buy tickets here.
