ESTASThe ESTAS Group, which runs the national customer feedback scheme for property professionals and produces the largest annual award events for both agencies and conveyancers in the  residential property sector, has confirmed more new partners for its Conveyancer Awards programme for 2018.  Lawyer Checker, Solve Legal Marketing and Today’s Conveyancer have all confirmed their support on the back of the highly successful inaugural event in October last year.

The awards, whose headline sponsor is SearchFlow, are unique as winners are selected purely on ratings collated via The ESTAS client feedback platform used by conveyancing firms taking part. 

Simon Brown, Founder of The ESTAS Group said “We’re absolutely delighted to have Lawyer Checker, Solve Legal and Today’s Conveyancer as new partners for this year’s awards.   To have the endorsement of three leading brands like these confirms to us that the conveyancing sector is ready to embrace this type of award scheme.”

The award scheme is already backed by the Conveyancing Association, the Society of Licensed Conveyancers, Legal Eye and Bold Legal Group along with headline sponsor SearchFlow and sister firms Landmark Information and Ochresoft.

Brown added “our feedback platform now provides firms with a simple tool to measure levels of service and generate valuable client testimonials. Winners of our awards are based purely on this feedback therefore providing an incredibly powerful marketing platform for any firm involved.”

Managing Director of Solve Legal Marketing, Karen Babington said:

Conveyancers of all shapes and sizes can take part in the awards. There are categories for single office solicitors, for local or regional firms with multiple branches and firms with national coverage and e-conveyancing specialists.  The ESTAS also has a category that recognises individual members of staff known as The People Awards.  The 2nd annual ESTAS Conveyancer Awards will take place on 19 October in the spectacular ballroom at The Grosvenor House, Park Lane London.  The event will once again be hosted by TV property expert and ESTAS brand ambassador Phil Spencer.

Spencer said “The ESTAS isn’t just an awards event or a customer feedback programme. The ESTAS is a state of mind, a philosophy that many firms believe in because customer service is at the heart of their business. Just taking part in the ESTAS sets firms apart from their competitors.  It sends a clear message that they are passionate about customer service, prepared to go that extra mile for their clients and keen to listen to feedback.  The ESTAS help firms to focus on service levels and raise standards across the property sector that we all work in.”

Don’t get caught out by the traditional equity partnership model

David Beech 2

It’s no secret that these are challenging times for some of the UK law sector as it tries to keep up with emerging digital trends and increasing demand from clients. But there is buoyancy in the market and opportunities for those businesses that are agile and brave enough to challenge the status quo – the traditional equity partnership model. We’ve seen it all too often where partners have been duped into putting their assets against a failing business that is riddled with debt. We’ve even received calls from partners to discuss bankruptcy and that the possibility of moving house is no longer possible, due to the LLP they joined going into liquidation.
