    It was great to welcome Martin Duffy, Chief Executive of the Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG), to ICW's offices in London today.

    This was an excellent opportunity for our new CEO Frank Lee to get Martin's input into our new and ongoing initiatives. These will help ICW members demonstrate to key Service and Infrastructure providers how they are going beyond compliance to deliver innovative, additional value through effective structured collaboration that delivers effectively for communities and supports the achievement of sustainability goals.

    Frank said, "Martin's input will be of enormous value to ICW's Members, and I look forward to forging stronger relationships with LCRIG and other key players in the highways sector." Frank and Martin then met with ICW's Chairman Lord David Evans for further discussions.

    The Institute for Collaborative Working (ICW) welcomes the London headquartered international law firm Spencer West LLP as the first law firm to become a member.

    Commercial and Corporate Partner Clare Waller, who is leading the initiative for Spencer West, commented "Collaboration is a key part of the way we work at Spencer West. We are looking forward to working closely with the ICW and exploring how the principles of collaborative working can be applied in the legal sector, and our partners will benefit from support and training from the ICW. As a firm we will further develop our collaborative working ethos, as we work towards applying the collaborative principles within the context of law firm and client relationships."

    David Hawkins, ICW Chief Knowledge Officer, said "We are delighted to have Spencer West join our executive network. Their expertise will enhance the ICW community as not only is collaboration a fundamental part of their ethos, but also their lawyers have industry experience of the benefits for the whole supply chain that can arise from putting collaborative strategies and principles into practice.

    "What is particularly exciting for us is that there is much to be explored around applying the principles laid down in the ISO 44000 family of standards to professional services, and we very much look forward to working with Spencer West within that wider context, as well as benefiting from the firm’s legal support so that we can extend the Institute’s offering to our members with a greater range of services."
