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.

Why your firm should support working mothers to the hilt

Georgina Hamblin

If you are going to balance the demands of work and childcare, and stay sane, you need to adapt, and with any luck your firm will adapt with you. In doing so you will both win, and your respective productivity will soar. When I had my son, I realised just how lucky I was. Not only did I have the incredible support of my, and my husband’s, family through this life-changing time, but I had a firm that offered me complete flexibility and control over my return to business life.
