The private client team at B P Collins LLP has become one of the first law firms in the country to be given the Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme Award (WIQS) from The Law Society.
It provides a best practice quality mark for wills and estate administration advice that consumers can trust and outlines required practices in areas such as will drafting, probate and estate administration.
Lucy Wood, partner and leader of the wills, trusts and probate team, said: “We’re delighted that our expertise and quality of service has been recognised with this Award, which gives clients the reassurance that we have their best interests at heart at all times.”
B P Collins is one of only sixteen firms in the UK to be accredited under the scheme which is based on a Wills and Inheritance Protocol that sets specific client service standards to ensure transparency in process, costs and communications, and it is designed for practices that offer both wills and probate/estate administration advice.
In order to gain accreditation, practices have to demonstrate they are compliant with the protocol, which is intended to help prospective clients to make a confident and informed choice of local legal practice.
