British Wills and Probate Awards 2022 – Shortlist Day 2

The second round of categories for the 2022 British Wills and Probate Awards are shortlisted today exclusively via Today’s Wills and Probate.

Further categories are set to be announced each day this week, with the full list published in the Today’s Wills and Probate weekly newsletter on Friday.

Following a record number of entries, #BWAPAwards2022 promises to be the most competitive with the judging panel – many of whom have been supporters of the awards since day one – acknowledging that this year was the most difficult to judge yet.

Commenting on the quality of the entries, judging panel members said:

“There were some outstanding examples of technology, people and process pulling together for true advantage.” – David Baskerville, Director and Lead Consultant, Baskerville Drummond Consulting Ltd

“I thought the standard was exceptional this year, and it was great to see the work that is being done for the industry, members of the public and charities.” – Matthew Lagden, CEO, Institute of Legacy Management

“Judging the entries again this year wasn’t easy. The quality was exceptional which certainly made my job difficult.” – Sue Carter, Strategic Consultant, Consult Sue Carter Ltd

Barry Mattock, Managing Director of Headline Sponsor Property Solutions Group, added:

“As headline sponsor of the British Wills & Probate Awards, we can’t wait to hear about all of the amazing things our industry will be celebrating in October. Is your team on the shortlist?

A massive well done to all the finalists. Getting shortlisted is a really big deal – we can’t wait to celebrate with you!”
