Cripps wins ‘Alliance of the Year’ at British Legal Technology Awards
Law firm Cripps has won the ‘Alliance of the Year’ award at the British Legal Technology Awards, for the firm’s work with business management consultants, Sprint Valley.
The awards, hosted by Netlaw Media, recognise excellence in legal technology, IT security, leadership and innovation, as well as the individuals, teams and suppliers transforming the future of legal services.
‘The Alliance of the Year Award’, sponsored by PracticeEvolve, recognises legal service providers and legal suppliers who have delivered excellence in collaboration between all parties.
Cripps and Sprint Valley collaborated on the firm’s innovation programme, ‘Spark’ – an initiative that works with clients and business teams to create impactful solutions that make a meaningful difference.
Rob Tyler, innovation manager at Cripps, who leads the programme, said: “winning this award is a testament to the hard work dozens of people at Cripps put in over the last two years and continue to do so. The incredibly talented team at Sprint Valley has extensive experience navigating business change. Working together, we have built a north star vision, established the Spark ethos, changed mindsets, enhanced client relationships, ignited projects and changed the way we do business to improve the service we offer to our clients.”
Luke Battye, managing partner and project lead at Sprint Valley, added: “The alliance award demonstrates just how well we have partnered to re-imagine how teams deliver legal services – whilst keeping the hallmark Cripps client experience. It’s been a joy to see how the business has embraced a radically client-centred approach and is now making it part of the firm’s DNA. We are proud of what the Cripps team have achieved and have been delighted to play a role in their innovations.”
Judged by an independent and impartial panel of experts, The British Legal Technology Awards are open to law firms, barristers’ chambers, in-house legal departments, alternative legal service providers and suppliers.
The awards took place on Wednesday 16 November 2022 at City Central at the Honourable Artillery Company, London.
