Timms’ Wills and Probate team received the prestigious award at the 5th Annual Gala in Birmingham in recognition of overall excellence, customer engagement, technology transformation, commitment to people development and of providing exceptional service to the local community.
Managing Partner Fiona Moffat said: “We are delighted that the Wills and Probate team has been recognized with this prestigious award.
“We have been serving our community and customers from our High Street bases for over 130 years and under Jo Robinson’s leadership our established team has only gone from strength to strength.
“We are committed to investing in all of our staff and as a result we are able to provide exceptional service to our customers.
Department Head Jo Robinson added: “I am particularly delighted that the award has highlighted how the team has gone above and beyond to support customers and our wider local communities.
“We are often asked to organize informal sessions to raise awareness and emphasize the importance of planning for the future or contingencies.
“Judges were also particularly complimentary about our commitment to adopting new technologies to improve internal and external communications and processes as well as our efforts to help other law firms and accountants by sharing best practices.
“Our goal for the future is to continue to develop and develop the department, to maintain our current high level of work and for each employee to develop his own specialty. We are looking to expand our probate litigation service as this is a rapidly growing area of work. »
