Pete Kenyon, partner and head of the firm’s advertising, technology and media sector group, explained why Cripps chose to get involved with the third annual Kent Digital Awards.
“Digital is an essential part of business strategy from new customer acquisition to driving loyalty and continuously improving the customer experience.
“At Cripps we work with clients to achieve their business (or personal) goals and understand how deeply important digital channels are for them.
“We’re excited to support the Kent Digital Awards and encourage companies across the county to enter so they can be recognised and rewarded for their creative and progressive thinking.
“This is a great way to help raise their profile and to showcase how digital media can be used as a way of driving a business forward.”
Robin Bailey Chairman of the KDA Judging panel said: “We are delighted to announce the appointment of Cripps as Headline Sponsor of the Kent Digital Awards 2017.
“Cripps is a very successful law firm which is highly respected across Kent and further afield.
“Through the Kent Digital Awards, Cripps will be able to build upon their strong relationships with the Kent business community and align themselves with the Digital Awards brand, which stands for progression, collaboration and best practice.”

As Pete says “At Cripps we’re focused on delivering the human face of law whether it’s through our website, on social media, via emails or in person. We’re people first and lawyers second and that’s why so many of our clients come back to us year after year.”
