DLA Piper three-time winner at the Legal Innovation & Technology Awards 2024

Global law firm DLA Piper was recognised three times at the Legal Innovation & Technology Awards 2024 held in London on 23 May. The firm was awarded the ‘Future of Legal Services Innovation’ for its disruptive and innovative approach to artificial intelligence (AI), while the DLA Design Thinking training programme bagged the award for ‘Outstanding Training Innovation’, and the Aiscension platform won the ‘Excellence in Litigation Technology’ category for its new bribery and corruption module.

DLA Piper’s winning approach to AI comprises 100+ AI-advising lawyers and data scientists revolutionising practice, collaborating with clients on innovation, liability, security, IP and ethics, influencing policy in the area and impacting the wider AI ecosystem, alongside the creation of novel legal and law-adjacent solutions under its Law& innovation arm.

The DLA Design Thinking programme was recognised for its creation and delivery of two bespoke training courses developed to embed an innovation mindset into the culture of the firm, and Aiscension’s bribery module for providing an AI-powered solution that’s faster, more accurate and more cost effective than any eDiscovery option on the market.

Simon Levine, Managing Partner and Global co-CEO, comments: “To be recognised across our client work, ways of working and homegrown tech solutions is a testament to just how embedded innovation is as a principle across the firm. Our industry is evolving, and we’ll continue to develop and invest in both our people and our capabilities in a way that uses our international expertise in AI and empowers creative and innovative means to meet our clients’ challenges around the world.”

Jean-Pierre Douglas-Henry, partner and Managing Director for Sustainability and Resilience, adds: “Innovation has long been a core pillar of our firm’s strategy, and a key driver in its continued success. This recognition of the progress we continue to make in pushing the boundaries of what is possible in leveraging data, technology and new ways of thinking to deliver best in class results for our clients and people show that we continue to set the bar for innovation in legal services.”

DLA Piper was also shortlisted in the following four categories:

  • International Law Firm Innovation
  • Disruptive Technology of the Year
  • Innovation in ESG
  • Innovation Trailblazer, where JP Douglas Henry received an individual nomination.

The prestigious awards, now in their 10th year, recognise visionary thinkers, pioneers, and game-changers who are reshaping the legal industry.
