Co-op Legal Services has been awarded 'Excellence in Technology and Innovation' at the Law Society's Excellence Awards.

These prestigious awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of those working across the legal sector. The award ceremony was held on at the Marriot's Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Wednesday 23 October 2019.

The Excellence in Innovation & Technology award recognises our Family Law team's pioneering approach to digital technology. This includes the development of our Online Divorce tool, our work with the UK Government to digitise the submission of divorce paperwork, the production of a wealth of online content and the use of in-house technology to support flexible working.

By embracing new technology, we are able to more effectively and efficiently fulfil the needs of our clients, while also helping to shape the future of the divorce process in England and Wales.

President of the Law Society, Simon Davis, said:

"At the Law Society Excellence Awards, we come together to celebrate outstanding success in the sector.

"There are more than 180,000 solicitors in England & Wales: to be shortlisted is to be recognised among the best. To win is a remarkable achievement."

Co-op Legal Services Head of Family Law commented:

''We were delighted to have been shortlisted for this year's prestigious Law Society Excellence Awards, so to win was fantastic and is something we're really proud of.

''To be recognised for the progressions we're making within the areas of technology and innovation is a great accolade. We've been working hard to ensure that we provide the best service possible to our clients and we're looking forward to continuing to build on this as we look towards another successful year in 2020."
