Rajah & Tann Singapore (R&T) has been recognised among the top 25 most innovative law firms at the FT Innovative Lawyers Asia-Pacific awards 2021, for the eighth year running.

Ranked 21st on the list, the highest among South East Asian law firms, the award recognises “future-ready” law firms which embrace digital transformation and sustainability.

R&T was also shortlisted for the“Most Innovative Law Firm of the Year” and the “Practice of Law: Digital Advisers” categories for the launch of its subsidiary, RTCyber, the first one-stop legal and cybersecurity ecosystem that provides a full suite of technical services to prevent or respond to cyber-attacks.
