The firm, which has offices in both Goole and Pontefract have been shortlisted for the Private Client Award and Rising Star Award at the 2016 Yorkshire Legal Awards.

A finalist in the same category in 2014, Helen has since gone on to build her reputation and expertise and is now the leading specialist in the firm for deputyships and Court of Protection Matters.
Shaun Pinchbeck, Partner and Head of the Private Client Department at Heptonstalls, said: “As a firm we are very proud to be shortlisted. To be nominated for both awards is a terrific achievement and it is testament to how hard both the department and Helen have worked to achieve our aim of providing outstanding service to our clients.”
Alex Gray, Commercial Director at Barker Brooks Communications which organises the awards, said: “The Yorkshire Legal Awards are now in their 16th year and the award categories are hotly contested. Therefore, being shortlisted for the ceremony is a fantastic achievement for Heptonstalls.”
The final will feature law firms from across the region and the winners will be announced at the awards ceremony at New Dock Hall, Leeds on Wednesday 13th October.
