LawBid shoulders Big Chip nomination - legal start up on course for digital industries award
UK News

LawBid, the online innovation that puts a panel of solicitors in front of clients seeking legal representation at best value, has been nominated at Big Chip 2018, the longest-running digital industry awards outside London.

From their offices in Manchester, Kid Harwood, the founder of, said this was proof of mainstream recognition for the benefit to consumers and the legal profession alike. “Being nominated at the Big Chip shows that consumers are really taking notice of the advantages of using LawBid to secure reliable legal services, at a price that represents best value for them. It’s also delivering new business to the legal profession, in a way that serves solicitors well, and helps them engage with the digital marketplace, a key part of developing the industry, according to reports published by both the Competition & Markets Authority and the Law Society itself.”

Shaun Fensom, who specialises in the development of the digital and on-line business sector, and chairs the Big Chip steering group, said: "We can stand back and marvel at how far the technology has come, but also at how the standard of digital, creative and tech work in the North has just kept on getting better - as good as you'll find anywhere. The judges have applied strict and rigorous standards and anyone on this shortlist can be truly proud of what they have achieved.”

LawBid has been acclaimed throughout the UK, most recently winning the innovation category at the Law Society in Birmingham Awards in March. The online platform has been praised by clients for seamlessly matching them with a panel of solicitors who are already briefed and eager to take on their case.

“By allowing clients to state their case easily, and allowing solicitors to respond in a secure and confidential environment, LawBid has made finding legal help much more user-friendly,” said Kid Harwood. “Both sides are free to discuss needs and quote fees before making any commitments. It’s in making that initial interaction so positive, that has earned this latest nomination. Big Chip is a big deal, and we’re looking forward to the 4th of July at Manchester’s Hilton Hotel.”
