BHW are delighted to have received the 'highly commended' award at the Law Firm Services (LFS) Awards for Regional Conveyancing Firm of the Year East Midlands.
The winners were announced at the ceremony which took place at the Vox Conference Centre in Birmingham on Wednesday 19th September.
The prestigious awards are split across six regions covering England and Wales. They are entered by numerous law firms and licensed conveyancers from across the county and region each year.
BHW was the only Leicestershire firm to make the final shortlist of four which was announced back in July.
Sarah Newcombe, Partner and Head of Residential Property said, “We’re thrilled to have won ‘highly commended’. This is the first time we have entered the awards so to receive this recognition is an excellent achievement.”
Judging for the award consists of client feedback, mystery shopping and analysis by a panel of industry experts.
Sarah added, “We have implemented a lot of new procedures to ensure consistently high service levels. I am very proud of the team for this success.”
