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.

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions.

Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
