Bright Line Law and Jonathan Fisher QC shortlisted for FT Innovative Lawyers awards

Bright Line Law is delighted to be shortlisted in the 2017 FT Innovative Lawyer awards. At the awards ceremony held at the Natural History Museum in London on 4 October 2017, Bright Line Law was recognised as being shortlisted in the following categories: 

‘Driving Value’ for clients for its role in shaping a new provision of the Proceeds of Crime Act targeting the proceeds of human rights abusers, in relation to which it was judged a Standout and the runner-up; and 

‘Rule of Law and Access to Justice’ for its launch and formation of The White Collar Crime Centre which analyses and comments on emerging white collar crime legal developments, in relation to which it was judged Highly Commended. 

Lead counsel of Bright Line Law and founder of The White Collar Crime Centre, Jonathan Fisher QC, was also shortlisted as one of just ten Europe-wide for ‘Legal Innovator of the Year’, one of the only categories of the awards judged by a large team of independent lawyers and consultants. The shortlisting identifies Jonathan Fisher QC as one of Europe’s most original legal thinkers in a fast-moving world. 

As a result, Bright Line Law, despite being launched just twelve months ago, has been recognised as being within the top 50 most innovative legal providers in Europe. 

Warm congratulations are extended to all shortlisted legal providers and award recipients. Jonathan Fisher QC, Bright Line Law and The White Collar Crime Centre is featured in today’s FT. The FT recognises Jonathan Fisher QC’s commitment to overcoming the restraints of traditional law firms which led to the establishment of Bright Line Law authorised by the Bar Standards Board and The White Collar Crime Centre’s early successes in helping to ensure that the Criminal Finances Bill 2016 was closely scrutinised in Parliament.
