Winners of LFS Awards announced

The winners of the Law Firm Services Awards were announced last night during a ceremony at Birmingham’s prestigious Vox Centre.

Commonly hailed as the largest Conveyancing Awards, the aim of the evening, sponsored by Groundsure, was to recognise and acknowledge success within the conveyancing industry, shining a spotlight on the achievements of both firms and individuals.

Attending the black-tie event was Today’s Conveyancer’s own Heather Cameron, who was also among the judging team for the awards. Chosen based on their awareness and expertise within the industry, the Judges went through a rigorous process when selecting the shortlist for each category, conducting a mystery shop, compliance check and Judges Interview.

After attending a thought-provoking day at the LFS Conference, guests were greeted with a champagne reception at 6.30, followed by a three-course Gala Dinner.
