A GDPR campaign launched by law firm Cripps has been shortlisted in the business development category at the LexisNexis Legal Awards 2018.


The awards (formerly known as the Halsbury Legal Awards) celebrate the achievements of individuals and firms across the legal sector in 16 different categories.   The ‘Award for Business Development’ recognises those responsible for pioneering and implementing exceptional business development and marketing programmes. 


Designed to assist clients and contacts with their GDPR preparations, the multi-channel campaign has included the development of an online knowledge tool (the GDPR Hub) and a simple 5-step process designed to help achieve and maintain compliance.  It has also included workshops, articles and a social media campaign. 


Partner Irfan Baluch, who is leading the GDPR initiative, commented: “We realised very early on that whilst the information that was generally available was very comprehensive and detailed, our clients were looking for someone to cut through the detail and tell them what they really needed to know.  Our campaign has been very focused on this objective, and we are delighted to be receiving such positive feedback”. 


The other finalists in the category are Barrister-Direct Ltd, CMS and Womble Bond Dickinson, with the winner to be announced at a ceremony in London on 15 March.
