Law firm Cripps has been recognised nationally for its GDPR campaign 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. 


In a ceremony held at the prestigious Sheraton Grand Park Lane hotel, Cripps collected the Award for Business Development which recognises those responsible for pioneering and implementing exceptional business development and marketing programmes. 


The GDPR campaign, which launched in September 2017, was designed to assist clients and contacts with their preparations.   Taking a multi-channel approach, the campaign included the development of an online knowledge tool (the GDPR Hub), a simple 5-step compliance process and a toolkit containing questionnaires, templates and related guidance documents, all designed to help achieve and maintain compliance.  These were supported by workshops, seminars and a social media campaign.  


Irfan Baluch, a partner in the commercial team who is leading the initiative, commented: “This is a fantastic achievement and we are delighted to pick up this award.  Our approach to the campaign has been focused on our clients’ needs, cutting through the complexity of GDPR and telling them what they really need to know.  This has been a true team effort and we are delighted with the success of the campaign so far, and this award reaffirms that we are getting it right”.


The other finalists in the category were Barrister-Direct, CMS and Womble Bond Dickinson.
