Keystone has been shortlisted in the MPF (Managing Partners’ Forum) Awards for Management Excellence.

Introduced in 2002, the annual awards were set up in order to recognise only the best managed firms, within the professional services sector.

With a distinct focus on leadership, brand, strategy, and partnerships, as well as client service and operational prowess, the awards are a key component of the MPF International Management Excellence Summit, in association with Harvard Business Review and Financial Times.

From an initial 28 firms – including leading names such as Clifford Chance, KPMG and Ernst & Young – Keystone was chosen to form part of the 13-strong shortlist, for the most “Mould Breaking Firm”. This particular award is for the firm that exhibits a game-changing quality which then contributes to market change.

James Knight, founder and Managing Director of Keystone, said:

“We are thrilled to be recognised once again by the MPF – and even more so in this category, which reinforces Keystone’s place as a leader in its field. Our cutting-edge approach to modern working practice is just one of the many aspects that set us apart from the conventional firm. Keystone’s shift away from the Partnership structure has challenged the norm and forced the legal sector to adjust its thinking.”
