IRIS Legal win award
IRIS Legal, the largest provider of software and IT services to UK law firms, is celebrating after winning the Best Technology Project at The Lawyer Awards 2012.
IRIS Legal won the award in recognition of its delivery of the hosted IRIS Meridian Law Connected project to No5 Chambers, one of the largest sets of barristers’ chambers in England & Wales. The award recognises IRIS Legal’s excellence in hosted solutions and the management and delivery of highly complex projects. It also highlights the positive on-going impact that innovative technology has on the business of law.
The project involved a large and complex integrated IT system spread across three UK locations. As part of the agreement, No5 Chambers also outsourced all of its IT requirements to IRIS Legal and a full-time senior IRIS Legal employee will work on site on a day-to-day basis.
Doug Hargrove, managing director at IRIS Legal, said:
“We’re over the moon that our work with No5 Chambers has been recognised for making such a significant impact on operations. We beat off stiff competition to win this award. We believe that investing in the right legal technology with an experienced partner like IRIS Legal can increase efficiencies, decrease costs and most importantly, improve client experience.”
The Lawyer Awards took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
The judging panel included Roger Bickerstaff, partner at Bird & Bird, Janet Day, director at Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP, Jan Durant, director at Lewis Silkin, Sue Hall, director at Linklaters and David Jabbari, partner at Clyde & Co.
