“We are honored that our new cloud-based legal research platform was recognized by the Asia Pacific Stevie Awards this year. As legal professionals continue to modernize their organizations across the globe, it is key that they have real-time access to a platform that can take legal practice productivity, accuracy and profitability to unprecedented levels,” said Izzy Silva, Managing Director, Wolters Kluwer Tax and Accounting, Asia Pacific.

Positioned to win a place as an industry disruptor, it takes law practice productivity, accuracy, and profitability to unprecedented levels. The practical tools across all 27 practice areas in CCH Pinpoint® have been developed by specialist legal practitioners to improve efficiency and save time on legal research.
Additionally, CCH Pinpoint® received a Silver Stevie® Award in the Innovation in Product Design and Development category.

The platform’s unique single interface combines the productivity enhancements of practice area specificity, workflow alignment, and rapidly actionable insights. These insights are gathered from current legislation, commentary, cases and practical tools such as precedents, forms, checklists, and topic guides. Whether it’s ‘black letter law’ or expert guidance, the information can be found easily within this single platform.
The Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards are the only business awards program to recognize innovation in the workplace in all 29 nations of the Asia-Pacific region. The Stevie Awards are widely considered to be the world's premier business awards, conferring recognition for achievement in programs such as The International Business Awards® for 18 years.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the winners will be celebrated during a virtual (online) awards ceremony on Tuesday, 22 September.
Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 100 executives around the world acting as judges in May and June.
“We are delighted that the seventh edition of the Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards attracted so many impressive nominations,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher. “This year’s winning nominations are testament to the resiliency and innovation of organizations in the region, many of which continue to succeed despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we are disappointed that we cannot stage the in-person awards banquet we had planned for Hanoi, Vietnam this year, we look forward to celebrating many of this year’s winners during our virtual awards ceremony on 22 September.”
