The Award


Winckworth Sherwood's IT team reaped  the prestigious award for the "Most Client Focused Law Firm"  at the Legal Technology Awards ceremony held on 31 January at the Marriot hotel, Grosvenor Square.

The award was won for a project that created an extranet solution which allows our client to manage its huge property portfolio of over 18,000 owned properties.   The client, in this case, being Genesis Housing Group who were on hand on the night to help collect the award.  


The Project


The extranet solution is a valuable property management tool. The multi-functional features and powerful search and export facility provide immediate access to information pertaining to a single property or batch of properties.  All users can see at a glance whether a current legal instruction applies to a property or properties, property type, value, tenancy type, title number, lender and charge details (where applicable).


This extranet product was quickly assimilated into normal, daily work practices by Genesis Housing Group and also our own lawyers and is used extensively in communications daily between principal users and third parties.  The product serves its purpose as an added value tooI. It has helped to improve business relationships as a result of the close collaborative working that this extranet supports
