The exhilarating night of the Financial Times Innovation Awards at the National History Museum saw Ontier emerge victorious as the recipient of the Innovation in People Management award.
This momentous achievement is a testament to Ontier's unwavering commitment to innovation and its groundbreaking approach to transforming the legal landscape. By seamlessly merging entrepreneurial skills with legal mastery, Ontier has redefined the traditional law firm model. This innovative shift not only propels Ontier's growth within the market but also elevates its capacity to attract top-tier talent.
At the core of this transformation is the creation of a novel career path that replaces the conventional pyramid model. Instead, Ontier's pioneering model nurtures Business Lawyers and Masters of Law, forming liquid teams tailored to each client's unique needs and jurisdictional requirements.
