A specialist team at Tameside law firm Bromleys which acts for vulnerable people has been shortlisted for a national accolade.
Bromleys’ 11-strong Court of Protection team acts for clients who lack the mental capacity to manage their own property and financial affairs due to reasons such as injury, illness or old age.
The team, headed by partner David Hilton, is a finalist at The British Wills and Probate Awards, which will be presented at a ceremony at The Belfry Hotel & Resort in Sutton Coldfield near Birmingham on Thursday, October 17.
The category recognises law firms that support the most vulnerable members of society by showing a compassionate and empathetic approach to client care and the highest standards of technical excellence.
David said: “Being shortlisted for this award is a great achievement for the team. It is the first year of the category and we have beaten off stiff competition from much larger firms to get this far.
“It recognises the continued hard work and efforts of the department, and bolsters our reputation as a leading Court of Protection specialist firm on the back of our most successful year to date.”
Bromleys’ shortlisting follows a string of recent awards successes for the firm, including being named professional services business of the year at the 2018 Pride of Tameside Business Awards and law firm of the year – small at the 2018 Manchester Legal Awards.
Bromleys, which is based in Ashton-under-Lyne, was also shortlisted for private client team of the year at the 2019 Manchester Legal Awards.
In addition, Bromleys has retained Investors in People Gold status and the Law Society’s Lexcel quality mark and Conveyancing Quality Scheme accreditation.
