InformationWeek Names Goodwin Procter to 2011 List of Top Technology Innovators in America

BOSTON, September 21, 2011 – InformationWeek has named the Information Technology (IT) Department of Goodwin Procter LLP, a national Am Law 50 firm, as a member of its 2011 500 list of Top Technology Innovators Across America, an annual listing of the nation’s most innovative users of business technology.

The list recognized Goodwin Procter’s Founders Workbench initiative, a free online resource that helps entrepreneurs navigate many of the legal and organizational challenges commonly faced by start-ups and emerging companies. The website includes an interactive online product, Document Driver, that enables entrepreneurs to create tailored legal start-up documents, including incorporation filings, and a blog, Founders Toolbox, where the firm’s attorneys and external contributors provide regular insight on topics of interest to founders. To follow Founders Workbench on Twitter, go to @Founderstoolbox.

InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation’s most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of America’s best know companies. The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders. Additional information on the InformationWeek 500 can be found here.

Goodwin Procter’s IT Department was also named to CIO magazine’s 2011 CIO 100 list in June. The annual award recognizes organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology.
