It was great to get together with so many to enjoy this year’s British Wills & Probate Awards and to do so, face to face at the wonderful Grand Hotel, Birmingham.

The British Wills and Probate Awards celebrate and showcase the hard work, innovation, and excellence of so many within the Wills and Probate Industry, across many different disciplines and categories, 21 in fact!

At a tough time for the UK, and the world, it was good to have some fun, see new faces and celebrate the entrepreneurialism, innovation, and hard work of so many people in so many organisations.

Thank you!

To our guests and all the delegates who attended, we had a fantastic time with you all and we’re sure you’ll agree it was great to be able to get together and celebrate the dedication, innovation, teamwork, and customer service of so many across the wills and probate sector, in what has become an excellent annual celebration.

Great to be involved in the British Wills & Probate Awards

Participating in this yearly celebration of the legal sector means a lot to us at Executor Solutions. Particularly in current challenging circumstances.

We work closely with many legal teams, solicitors, and executors and have an eye on the wider sector. We feel that supporting and celebrating the hard work of so many is important and something we enjoy.

In addition we’re always keen to learn more about the needs, challenges and good practise in the wills and probate space.

It’s great to do this all in less formal settings!

Proud to be Headline Sponsor

We were thrilled that this year we had the opportunity to be headline sponsor for this year’s awards, having previously been category sponsor and champagne reception sponsor.

Leading the celebrations with Today’s Media is something we took great pride in.

Our Group Business Director, Michael Edwards said:

After a year like no another, it was great to be back in the room at a British Wills and Probate Awards. Great to see faces both familiar and new, we can’t wait for next year! Congratulations to all of the winners, highly deserved and it was clear to see just how much it meant to you!

 Our Group Managing Director, Barry Mattock said:

It means a lot to Executor Solutions to be leading the celebrations today.

Working with Today’s Media

A special mention is undoubtedly required for Today’s Media, who did a fantastic job in organising the awards in what has been difficult, changing, and uncertain circumstances.

Thank you again for the opportunity you provide on a yearly basis to down tools and celebrate with our fellow legal professionals, it really does go a long way. And another mention is also needed for the Grand Hotel in Birmingham, what a venue it was to hold the awards!

It’s fantastic to partner with a like-minded organisation in Executor Solutions who have provided a huge amount of support over the last 9 months in bringing the awards together to make them the success they were on the night.
