Our Private Wealth team was delighted to receive the award at the ceremony held in Manchester last night, Wednesday 11th October.

We also came highly commended in the Charity Legacy Probate Collaboration of the Year category and were shortlisted in the Boutique Contentious Wills and Probate Team of the Year category.

Judging panels were made up of leaders within the sector including Matthew Lagden of the Institute of Legacy Management, Lucinda Frostick of Remember a Charity, and for categories we hadn’t entered, our own Partner and Head of Trusts and Estates Administration, Eleanor Evans.

Eleanor said:

“It was a pleasure to once again be on the judging panel for several of the awards this year.  This event provides the opportunity to recognise the hard work and high level of service which is consistently delivered within the industry.  I’m thrilled Hugh James has been named ‘Solicitor Firm of the Year – National’ for the third year in the a row, and extend my congratulations to all last night’s winners.”

The awards ceremony, now in its 6th year, is run by the Today’s Wills and Probate publication.
