FT name Obelisk Legal Pioneers

Obelisk has been highly commended for the second year running in the Legal Pioneers category in the Financial Times Innovative Lawyer Awards.

We had a fantastic result for Obelisk at the FT Innovative Lawyers’ Awards in 2012, and again in 2013. Obelisk was Highly Commended as a Legal Pioneer in a category that ranked 13 companies, including giants such as the Co-Op, for their innovative solutions.

Obelisk was shortlisted out of 600 nominations in 2 categories; Legal Pioneers and Dana Denis-Smith, our CEO, in the Individual Legal Innovator category.

The FT said Dana “attracted the judges attention with her firm’s use of parent-lawyers who choose the hours they want to work. Given how many women now study law and the appalling drop-out rate as their careers progress (or do not!), we thought she was addressing an important problem.”
