Law firm Fisher Jones Greenwood has won a Law Society award for Excellence in Technology at the 10th annual Excellence Awards.

The ceremony, at the Park Lane Hilton, recognised the most outstanding practitioners in their field and celebrated ten years of excellence within the legal profession.

Alongside taking home the technology award, Fisher Jones Greenwood also made the shortlist in the Excellence in Private Client Practice category.

Fisher Jones Greenwood, which has offices in Billericay, Colchester, Chelmsford and Clacton, won award as a result of its work in the design of workflows combining law and technology. This has enabled efficient, secure access to justice for those of modest means who fell out of scope as a result of Government legal aid changes.

Paula Fowler, managing partner, said: “Being shortlisted twice was a great success in itself, so to pick up the award for Excellence in Technology really is a wonderful achievement by everyone involved, from trainees, paralegals and partners, to external stakeholders including Essex University.”
