Brought to you by Today’s Media, the sixth annual British Wills and Probate Awards were hosted in Manchester on 11th October recognising and celebrating excellence in the Wills and Probate sector.

The awards are increasingly recognised as a badge of honour for practitioners who must demonstrate adherence to carefully selected category criteria. Each submission is scrutinised by a panel of expert judges drawn from across the legal services spectrum who independently score the entry. The top scoring firms in each category are recognised as winners and highly commended.

The process is necessarily stringent and designed to recognise the individuals and organisations who deliver technological and operational innovation, excellence in the technicalities of the law, and exceptional client service.

With a record number of entries competition was fierce, with Finders International coming out top in the prestigious ‘Probate Research Firm of the Year’ category. The judges said, “One of the best submissions I’ve read in the two years of judging. Clear evidence of growth, and good staff and client engagement.”

Commenting on their triumph Daniel Curran MD, Finders International said, “We are absolutely thrilled to receive this prestigious industry award. It’s a testament to the dedication and hard work of our incredible team, who consistently go above and beyond to deliver excellence.”

The British Wills and Probate Awards is the largest event dedicated to recognising excellence in the industry. It is hosted by Today’s Media, the publishers of trade publication Today’s Wills and Probate, an online news publication for solicitors, will writers and probate practitioners.

Commenting on the evening, Andrew Houston of Headline Sponsor CTT Group said, “As we look back on the BWAP Awards, it’s evident that the event was a remarkable testament to the hard work, innovations and inspiration from our industry leaders. The atmosphere was filled with excitement and anticipation, with each nominee deserving of recognition for their outstanding contributions. We hope you all enjoyed the event as much as we did, and we can’t wait to see you all again next year!”

Aleks Tomczyk, Founder & COO at Networking Sponsor Exizent added, “A massive congratulations to all the nominees and winners, it was fantastic to see so many people doing a great job and invested in the work they do.”
