Ashfords is delighted to announce that the firm has been shortlisted for two awards in the Legal Week Innovation Awards. The firm has been recognised in the categories for business development innovation and future legal services innovation.
The Business Risk and Regulation department has been nominated in the category of 'Future Legal Services Innovation' following the introduction of the firm's new Business Regulatory Solutions Platform, Regulatory Consultancy and Legal Services. This prestigious award will be presented to the firm who has been most innovative in their delivery of legal services.

Richard Voke, Partner and Head of Ashfords' Business Risk and Regulation Team, said: "The BRS offering allows Ashfords to been seen as problem solvers as well as legal advisers - it differentiates us from our competitors and it's great that this has been recognised by the awards body".
Also nominated is the firm's new cross selling business development initiative which has been shortlisted for 'Business Development Innovation' of the year. This award will recognise innovation in the arena of business development with a focus on a specific project or initiative.
Jeff Nicholls, Senior Business Development Manager commented: "Cross selling has always been challenging for the professional services sector.
