Karen Babington, Director of the Practical Vision Network who run the Today’s Wills and Probate trade publication said:

“The Awards, now in their third year, were set up to discover and recognise outstanding achievements, highlight progressions and champion innovation amongst firms and individual private professionals across the Wills and Probate sector. Demand on professionals working in the sector during extremely challenging times, has never been greater, and so it is important that individuals and firms are recognised for their outstanding contributions.

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of the nominees and congratulate the three shortlisted organisations and people within each category. The judges tell me that standards were extremely high.”

Dave Newick, Managing Director of Arken.legal, said:

“COVID-19 – understandably – has put the Wills & Probate industry under unprecedented demand. The world’s mortality has been challenged and a natural response to this, is to protect loved ones. With social distancing in place, many were – and are fulfilling this response by organising their Wills and associated documents. Delivering these services during a time of pandemic is a response from our industry that requires professionalism, innovation, courage and patience. The British Wills and Probate Awards 2020 is the platform to showcase members of our industry who have done just this. We look forward to coming together to recognise these achievements. We wish all of those shortlisted the best of luck.”

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the glitzy awards bash will be taking place online ensuring that all attendees remain safe during these uncertain times.

Karen Babington added:

“We look forward to hosting our biggest and best awards ceremony to date, albeit virtually. The wonderful Jennie Bond, will host the awards again on 22nd October, 2020 to announce our winners.”

More details about the online event will be made available shortly.

Everyone at Today’s Wills and Probate wishes those who have been shortlisted the best of luck.
