The Excellence Awards are back for 2018 and are going to be the biggest and best yet - showcasing excellence demonstrated by outstanding firms and individuals across the legal profession in England and Wales.

The awards include Excellence in Private Client Practice, which celebrates excellence and outstanding achievement in private client work. Covering a broad spectrum of work, this category relates to wills, probate, trusts, tax planning, charity, Court of Protection and mental capacity issues. We’re looking for exceptional teams or firms, including sole practitioners, who set themselves apart in the private client world. This is your chance to showcase your significant contributions to private client work. The judges will be looking for entries who demonstrate innovative ideas and new techniques, evidence the positive impact the action has had on both a firm and its clients and show an inventive use of qualifications, knowledge and skills.

Nominations are now open, closing on Friday 25 May.

We have compiled a range of inspiring case studies from some of last year’s successful entries, including Wollen Michelmore’s winning submission in the Excellence in Private Client Practice category.
