Technology and innovation aren’t the rare beasts they once were in the legal sector. Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, professionals throughout the industry have understood the importance of modernising practises and evolving services to meet the changing needs of clients. Of course that’s only accelerated over the past two years. 

That’s why, in what is fast becoming a crowded field, the co-founders of the Privacy Compliance Hub, Nigel Jones and Karima Noren, say they are delighted to have been shortlisted for an award for legal supplier innovation by the 2022 LexisNexis Legal Awards. 

“It’s been a challenge in many ways,” Jones says about building the platform. “We don’t claim to offer a silver bullet because it doesn’t exist. But we’re proud to have created a product that enables organisations to protect a fundamental human right.” 

The competition was launched in 2013 to recognise and celebrate experience and innovation across the legal sector. Decided by a panel of 25 judges, the supplier innovation category recognises a company that has introduced new working practises, which are influencing the future of law and practice. 

BigHand, InfoTrack and Legl have also been shortlisted, with the winner announced on 30 March. 

“There are many deserving entrants for this award but we hope that 2022 is our year,” Jones says. “We have created a solution that not only meets the needs of our clients but results in benefits to society as a whole. That’s innovation.”
