Fraser and Fraser has been shortlisted as Probate Research Firm of the Year at the prestigious British Wills and Probate Awards 2020.

The awards, now in their third year, aim to recognise firms that are consistently outstanding in their sector and lead the way in innovation and professionalism.

Unveiling a three-firm shortlist from a list of nominations that was of “extremely high standard”, Karen Babington, director of the Practical Vision Network, which runs the Today’s Wills and Probate trade publication, said: “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.”

Dave Newick, managing director of headline awards sponsor Arken.legal, added: “Covid-19 has put the wills and probate industry under unprecedented demand. Delivering services during a time of pandemic is a response from our industry that requires professionalism, innovation, courage and patience.”

The winners of the British Wills and Probate Awards 2020 are scheduled to be announced in October.
