December 11, 2018

In the Financial Times Most Innovative Lawyers North America special report, Morgan Lewis was ranked in the Top 10 for Most Innovative Law Firms for Business of Law, Highly Commended for Accessing New Markets & Capital and Data Knowledge & Intelligence, and a Standout for Managing & Developing Talent.

The annual report highlighted the firm’s work for advising the underwriters of a $250 million bond issuance for the first Overseas Private Investment Corporation-insured central spent nuclear fuel storage facility in Ukraine, which is expected to save tens of millions a year for Ukraine's nuclear power operator, and decrease its reliance on Russia for the safe disposal of spent fuel. It also showcased two technological developments: the firm’s development of a #MeToo bot, which is an algorithm that quickly sorts through volumes of digital information to identify data that requires further investigation; and data visualizations of attorney and staff work that identified trends within the firm’s own work structure.
