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.

We are currently running a consultation on the IGR which continues until 9 February.
