Boys & Maughan conveyancers highly commended in Law Society national awards
We narrowly missed out on being named the top firm in the country in the conveyancing category of the prestigious national Law Society Excellence Awards on 9 October 2014.
Our firm, which has offices across Thanet and in Canterbury, were the runners up and highly commended in the 2014 CQS Award for Excellence in Conveyancing Practice.
Boys & Maughan were the only solicitors in the county to make the shortlist for the property buying and selling award, which is reserved for outstanding practitioners in England & Wales that can demonstrate the strongest commitment to the values of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS).
Presenting the awards for the Law Society, BBC Radio 4 Today programme presenter Mishal Husain said: “Boys & Maughan take a firm-wide approach to consistently providing exactly what clients want and need from a conveyancing service. Staff have fully embraced a Conveyancing Quality Scheme culture and ethos, applying the CQS drivers to raise standards and promoting them in every transaction.”
Peter Rodd, Senior Partner at Boys & Maughan said: “Being highly commended is a tremendous achievement for our firm. Most of the other firms in the final were considerably bigger than us so our team truly punched above its weight in getting so close to being declared the best solicitors for conveyancing in the country.
“I would like to pay tribute to the exceptional team we have here at Boys & Maughan. Everybody works hard to get the job done, often to tight timescales, whilst always taking time to understand people’s personal circumstances and ensuring that we are friendly and approachable.”
It was the second time in a week that we have been recognised on a national stage. On 8 October 2014 Mary-Joyce Insaidoo, a solicitor in our family department, narrowly missed out on being named Family Law Partner of the Year in the final of the 2014 Family Law Awards.
