Previous Winners: Why Entering Industry Awards Are Important

Are you undecided as to whether you should nominate a colleague or your firm for the 2020 British Wills and Probate Awards?

We understand that entering industry awards ceremonies are not top of your agenda as resources are often stretched but it is not just the winning that counts (although that is a bonus!) – there are many potential business gains for your firm and colleagues.

Hear from our 2019 winners why it is so important to enter and be a part of The British Wills and Probate Awards 2020:

Winner of The Large Firms Probate Provider of the Year

“The British Wills and Probate Awards is important to us as we believe those doing exceptional work within the industry should be celebrated. By acknowledging those going above and beyond to provide an excellent service, it challenges others to go the extra mile and builds a reputation of the industry that we can all be proud of.

“The event not only recognises probate providers like ourselves but also celebrates the excellence of some of our business partners.

“The awards are also a great opportunity to network and reconnect with other industry professionals. It’s not very often you get that many people from the sector in the same place at the same time!”

Winner of The Solicitor Firm of the Year (South)

“It is important for our field of law to be recognised at awards as all too often Wills and Probate practitioners are overlooked by the public as not providing the same level of service as other areas of law.

“An evening celebrating excellence in the field is a wonderful way to get to know other professionals and to celebrate the incredible work that we do. Having our field recognised in this way increases awareness of the work we do and by winning an award, the general public and our peers, recognise our achievement. It also encourages recruitment of staff into the firm.”

Winner of The Small Firms Probate Provider of the Year

“……it has been fantastic to be part of an event which celebrates the achievements and services of firms working in this area of the law. For all our efforts to have been recognised at this level and for us to be chosen as the winners in our category really is the icing on the cake!

Winner of The National & Northern Solicitor Firm of the Year

“Wills and probate experts support individuals during what tend to be some of the most emotionally taxing and stressful times of their lives. Firms provide an essential service and the British Wills and Probate Awards bring together the country’s very best. It’s wonderful to celebrate achievements among peers.”

Winners of The National Will Writing Firm of the Year, Best Use of Technology and Young Practitioner of the Year

“It’s hugely important. The more we can encourage innovation in the sector, the more we can advance the industry in the long term. We’re proud to be a part of it!”

Winner of The Best Use of Marketing and Social Media

“As more and more technology products become available to law firms, it can be difficult to distinguish valuable offerings from ephemeral gimmicks. Awards nights like the British Wills and Probate Awards help the industry to identify quality services and providers.”
