Press release from the Law Society Awards:
Reading-based Barrett and Co Solicitors could be celebrating winning a national legal award next month, thanks to their ever-growing expertise in private client work.
Their Private Client legal team has been shortlisted for the prestigious Law Society Excellence Award, the highest accolade for law firms in England and Wales.
“This is a great team effort and we’re thrilled to be short-listed,” said Hilary Buckle, the firm’s Partner and Head of the Private Client department.
“We’re extremely proud of helping clients with wills, power of attorney and probate, particularly at how we have continued to help clients during lock down.”
“We have always been a top regional firm, with extremely knowledgeable and experienced solicitors offering a service that is second to none – but at a price that is affordable.”
“We are being recognised as one of the best law firms in the country. Clients are increasingly coming to us for contested probate and our specialist advice regarding trusts and estate planning.”
Law Society of England and Wales president Simon Davis said: “Congratulations to Barrett and Co who have been shortlisted. There are more than 9,000 firms and 190,000 solicitors in England and Wales, so to be shortlisted for a Law Society Excellence Award is to be recognised as being among the very best of the best.
“The justice system was already under immense pressure prior to Covid-19 and the situation has been exacerbated by the pandemic, making the incredible work that is being done by solicitors across the country day-in day-out to support their clients more vital than ever.”
Winners will be announced in a series of online ceremonies from 13-15 October.
