For the second year running, international probate research firm Fraser and Fraser has won the prestigious Paralegal Business of the Year award at the National Paralegal Awards.

The award, sponsored by international law firm Dentons, rewards the paralegal business that can most clearly demonstrate how it has exceeded client expectations and excelled within its market over the previous 12 months.

Commenting on the award, Fraser and Fraser partner Neil Fraser said: “I am incredibly proud of everyone at the firm who has worked so hard this year and whose professionalism and commitment contributed so much to us winning this award. Fraser and Fraser was the only probate research firm to be selected in the Paralegal Business of the Year category, and for us then to go on to win the award for the second consecutive year was even more satisfying.

“As a firm we rely on paralegals and their expertise at every level. It is great to see the sector going from strength to strength and the way in which these awards are raising the profile of paralegals and the importance of their work nationwide.”

Rita Leat, managing director of the Professional Paralegal Register (PPR), which hosts the awards, said: “The National Paralegal Awards recognise and reward the outstanding work of paralegals in the UK. The judging panel and head judge had no hesitation in awarding Fraser and Fraser Best Paralegal Business of the Year in the UK. The firm’s expertise and customer care shone through.”

On what was a highly successful night for the firm, Neil Fraser also took the honours for Paralegal of the Year for the south of England and the UK.

The National Paralegal Awards took place last Friday via a remote, socially distanced event that brought together paralegals with a wide range of expertise and specialisations from across the country.
