City law firm honours leading tech start-up firm
19th April, 2012
COMMERCIAL law firm Aaron & Partners underlined its commitment to technology start-ups by presenting an award to a company that developed automated software for Amazon sellers.
Chester and Manchester-based Aaron & Partners sponsored the ‘Best Venture Backed Tech Startup’ category at the second annual Northern Tech Awards in Manchester.
The accolade went to Camiloo, which provides services to online retailers including Amazon and also develops mobile and desktop applications for third parties.
Camiloo last year received investment from the European Regional Development Fund-backed North West Fund 4 Digital & Creative.
Adam Kerr, head of intellectual property & technology at Aaron & Partners, said: “Camiloo’s success story should be a source of inspiration for all would-be entrepreneurs.
“It began trading in 2009 from a spare room in an apartment. Starting with a single client retainer, the company has grown to more than 320 clients worldwide and has a bright future ahead of it.
“We were very proud to present the award to such an inspirational company.”
Aaron & Partners, Cheshire’s largest commercial law firm, has established strong links with the region’s technology and IT businesses, and its intellectual property practice is growing rapidly.
Techcelerate CEO Manoj Ranaweera, who founded the Northern Tech Awards last year, said: “We are delighted that in only our second year the awards are firmly established as an essential event for the technology sector. “The quality of applications this year was exceptional.”
