Timms Wills & Probate Team Wins National Recognition
Timms Solicitors, which has offices in Derby, Burton, Ashby and Swadlincote, have been hailed the Midlands Solicitor Firm of the Year in the British Wills and Probate Awards.
The Wills and Probate team from Timms were presented with the prestigious award at the 5th annual gala event in Birmingham in recognition of all round excellence, client engagement, technology transformation, commitment to staff development and providing an outstanding service to the local community.
Managing Partner Fiona Moffat said: “We are delighted that the Wills and Probate team have been recognised with this prestigious award.
“We have been serving our community and clients from our High Street bases for more than 130 years and, under the leadership of Jo Robinson, our established team has gone from strength to strength.
“ We are committed to investing in all of our staff and as a result we are able to provide an exceptional service to our clients.”
Head of Department Jo Robinson added: “I am particularly delighted that the award has highlighted how the team has gone above and beyond to support clients and our wider local communities.
“We are often asked to host informal sessions to raise awareness and highlight the importance of planning for later life or the unexpected.
“The judges were also particularly complimentary about our commitment to embracing new technologies to improve internal and external communications and processes as well as our efforts to assist other solicitor firms and accountants by sharing best practice.
“Our focus moving forwards is to continue to develop and grow the department, maintain our current high standard of work, and for each lawyer to develop their own specialism. We seek to broaden our contentious probate department as this is a rapidly growing area of work.”
