DLA Piper has won the award for International Law Firm Innovation at a virtual ceremony on 29 April celebrating Law.com International’s annual Legal Innovation Awards 2022.
Hosted by Legal Week, and now in its eighth year, the event celebrates the exceptional accomplishments of law firms, chambers, in-house legal departments and alternative business structures that promote innovation within the sector. Winners were recognised for their work on pioneering projects and initiatives and collaborating with colleagues across a range of markets and disciplines.

David Huston, DLA Piper’s Head of Business Process Improvement, commented: “It’s brilliant to see our legal and business services teams recognised for their inspiring work throughout an undeniably difficult year. We are focused on expanding our Law& brand and shifting the way law firms approach traditional legal services. This achievement further demonstrates our investment in, and commitment to, innovation aimed towards transforming the client experience, as the industry continues to evolve.”
In addition to this accolade, DLA Piper was shortlisted in the following categories:
