Managing director, Chris Harris, says it’s a ‘fabulous recognition’

The team at Lawyer Checker are proud to announce that the company and its product have been shortlisted for two highly regarded business awards in the company’s home county, Cheshire.

The Trinity Mirror Cheshire Business Awards are to be held at the Historic Chester Cathedral on Friday 3 October, with ITN news presenter Lucy Meacock hosting.

Commenting on the shortlist announcement, Chris Harris, managing director, said: “This is a fabulous recognition for the team and the product. The business has grown exponentially over the past twelve months, in particular with in excess of 400 law firms now implementing an account and entity screen search within their conveyancing transactions, potentially protecting millions of pounds in purchases across the country.”

The first award is the ‘innovation and enterprise’ award. It celebrates new ideas, processes, products, services, technologies and applications that have had an impact on an organisation’s success.  To make the shortlist, Lawyer Checker demonstrated that its product was original and its impact, practicality of application demonstrated measurable benefit to the business.

Secondly, for the ‘business start-up’ award, the company made the shortlist by showcasing a fantastic new product to market, finding a niche area to focus on and overcoming all odds to achieve success.

The Lawyer Checker team is very excited and, of course, thrilled to make the short list – keep your fingers crossed for a win.

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
