Laurelo Probate: Previous Winner, Now Finalist for the Prestigious British Wills and Probate Awards - Probate Provider of the Year

Laurelo Probate, a self-proclaimed National trailblazer in the legal sector is elated to announce its selection as a finalist at the British Wills and Probate Awards in the category of “Probate Provider of the Year, (South).” This recognition comes on the heels of their triumphant victory in the same category last year and their additional win at The ‘Probies’ Awards for Best small Probate Law Firm in 2022.

Laurelo isn’t just a company; it’s a beacon of compassion, transparency, and unwavering support during one of life’s most challenging moments. Their journey began with a personal commitment from the Founder, spurred into action by a negative probate experience within their own family. This commitment laid the foundation for Laurelo’s guiding principles: families first, transparent costs, and clear communication.

In an area where grief isn’t confined to 9-5, Laurelo stands strong with their 24/7 support, providing comfort to families in their times of need. From in-home meetings to a comprehensive range of personalised support channels, including a free advice line, Laurelo walks families through the probate process with empathy and unwavering dedication.

The accolades that Laurelo has gathered along their journey tell a powerful story. The team’s dedication to excellence and compassionate service has led to not one, but two national industry awards. These accolades, combined with their affiliation with the NAFD, FSA and SAIF trade bodies, solidify their position as a trusted industry leader.

“We stand at a remarkable juncture. Last year, we proudly accepted the British Wills and Probate Award for ‘Probate Provider of the South.’ As we find ourselves nominated again amidst tougher competition, we are humbled and incredibly fortunate to be recognised once again” stated Emma Knewstub, Co-Director of Laurelo.

This nomination underscores Laurelo’s ongoing commitment to fostering change within an industry that demands a guiding hand with a personal touch. Their family-centric approach and tireless efforts to simplify and humanise the probate process has been acknowledged as they stand poised to potentially reclaim their title.
