Anglia Research wins national probate research award… again!

For the second consecutive year, Ipswich-based probate research firm Anglia Research were revealed as winners at the National Paralegal Awards (NPA’s) held last week at the Grand Hotel in Birmingham. Replicating last year’s success, the team walked away with the much sought-after award for the Probate Research Organisation of the Year, beating off strong competition.

The National Paralegal Awards 2023, now in its fifth year, promotes the work and achievements of Paralegals in the UK across the legal sector and was this year hosted by CILEX.

Paralegals play an increasingly vital role in the delivery of legal services – the legal system would not operate as efficiently without them. The NPA’s, organised by the Professional Paralegal Register, champions and rewards the work undertaken by paralegals across all sectors in the UK and the businesses that support them.

The night also saw Regional Head Eileen Lavelle (nee Butcher) receive a highly commended award for the category of Best Probate Research Paralegal.

Probate research is considered a crucial part of the legal sector, providing specialist services including locating missing beneficiaries, establishing next of kin in cases where there is no valid will, and other key offerings.

Anglia Research’s Executive Director Philip Turvey said of the victory:

“We are absolutely delighted to have won the main company award for the second consecutive year. This award is a testament to the fine work that our team carry out every day. We are immensely proud to receive further external validation that we are continuing on the right path in both how we operate but also with the staff development opportunities that we offer. Having accredited staff is the cornerstone of our business.”

Founded in back in 1979, Anglia Research employs forty members of staff, offering specialist services to the legal profession, public sector, and individual beneficiaries.
