A&L Goodbody wins two European awards
A&L Goodbody has won two European accolades at the Managing Partners’ Forum (MPF) Awards 2016.
The Irish law firm was recognised in the category of Best Community Engagement for its Dublin literacy programme and Best Use of Business Systems for developing a bespoke business bid platform.
Since 2013, A&L Goodbody has partnered with educational development organisation Suas to improve declining literacy levels among young people in Dublin 1.
The firm’s business accolade was given in recognition of the firm’s work in designing, building and rolling out customised technology entirely in-house to increase the quality and speed of providing solutions to client requests for the firm’s services.
Held in association with Harvard Business Review and The Financial Times, an independent judging panel selected A&L Goodbody from a shortlist of European professional services firms in both categories.
Julian Yarr, managing partner, said: “Our people are the backbone of the firm. These awards highlight not only their skill and talent in developing and implementing new ideas to transform our business, but also their dedication to making a difference in our local community.
“External recognition of these efforts is particularly pleasing and makes us very proud of what we have achieved.”
