Escalate honoured at prestigious legal awards
31 May 2018
Escalate, the ground-breaking commercial dispute resolution process for SMEs backed by PKF firms including PKF Littlejohn and PKF Francis Clark, has been recognised at the prestigious Legal Week Innovation Awards.
The process was highly commended by judges in the ‘Future of Legal Services Innovation – Private Practice’ category at the awards ceremony in London on 25 May.
Escalate has also been shortlisted for ‘Best collaboration initiative’ in The Lawyer Awards 2018. The winner of the category will be announced on Tuesday 26 June 2018.
The recognition that Escalate has gained in the legal industry follows its success at the British Accountancy Awards last October, where it was named ‘Innovation of the Year’.
Chris Clay, a founder of the Escalate process and partner at PKF Littlejohn, said: “It’s pleasing to see that commentators in the accountancy and legal professions are acknowledging the impact that Escalate is having on the dispute resolution market. We’re already helping businesses to recover more than £18 million that is currently locked up in commercial disputes, and we’re only just getting started.”
