Tricia Lonorgan, Conveyancing Director, Barnetts who won Direct Conveyancing Firm of the Year and silver in the North West regional category said: “I’m so happy. I really wanted to do something for the staff to thank them for all the hard work they put in.

"It’s been a really tough time for the industry and they’ve just been incredible, this is down to them.”

25 year old Emma Alsop of Lanyon Bowdler took home the Young Conveyancer award. Head of Residential Property, David Foden said: “I honestly can’t think of a more worthy winner.

"Emma has basically gone from assistant to team leader in hardly any time. She’s got this because of her own sheer hard work and determination, she really deserves it.”
