The Outstanding Innovation Award recognises an exceptional individual who has demonstrated entrepreneurial flair and innovation to successfully transform their business.
Kerry McCloy was selected as a finalist alongside three enterprising women from leading NI businesses, but it was her work on establishing Cleaver Fulton Rankin’s Legal Technology Group that clinched her the win.
Kerry McCloy launched the Legal Technology Group in 2021, which made Cleaver Fulton Rankin the first indigenous NI law firm to establish such a group. The Legal Technology Group provides managed document review and expert eDiscovery solutions to nearshore law firms, and support to our specialist legal teams in the delivery of legal services to our clients. The team combines cutting-edge technology, offering innovative solutions regarding high volume, document-intensive dispute resolution legal work to deliver highly accurate, cost-effective and time-efficient document review for complex dispute resolution matters.
Cleaver Fulton Rankin enjoyed further success at this year’s Women in Business Awards with HR Director, Kerri Bradley, making the final shortlist for the Best in Professional Services (Corporate).
