To appreciate the full impact of Certainty on Wills & Probate in the UK it is useful to consider the diversity of those who use, reference and recommend the services. All have an interest in the various stages of Wills & Probate and agree that Certainty is an essential tool to protect relevant parties and stakeholders:

  • Educators and advisors to Wills & Probate practitioners such as Gill Steel and Professor Lesley King
  • Professional Indemnity providers (90% recommend Certainty)
  • Compliance, risk management, OFR and COLP advisors
  • Lexis Nexis and Practical Law Company – those issuing practice notes to practitioners
  • Legal networks including LawNet, Bold Legal Group and regional law societies
  • Probate Researchers such as Title Research and Fraser & Fraser
  • Search service providers such as TM Group and Quantus
  • National Awareness bodies such as Dying Matters
  • UK Charities such as Macmillan Cancer Care, Will Aid, Alzheimer’s Society, Remember a Charity, PDSA
  • Public Advice bodies such as Citizens Advice Bureaux
  • National Association of Funeral Directors
  • Law firms – thousands of practitioners around the country use Certainty to protect business and clients.

When surveyed 80% of solicitors stated that they preferred a voluntary National Will Register, in favour of a compulsory scheme to preserve testamentary freedom. Certainty is a proven process to help law firms and others protect their business and clients.

Is it time solicitors started taking ethics training more seriously?

The requirement for solicitors to behave ethically in modern legal practice is more relevant than ever. Solicitors are still held in fairly high regard by the public, although that esteem is on the wane according to last year’s Trusted Professions poll by Ipsos Mori. Lawyers are less trusted than teachers and doctors but at least we prevail over accountants and bankers. We still hold a position of trust but we must work to hold that position. The current Solicitors Regulation Authority proposals to revise the Handbook are evidence that work still needs to be done.
