Winner v1

We are delighted to announce that our Property Department have been named Property Team of the Year at the 2016 Modern Law Conveyancing Awards,  which were held in Liverpool on Thursday 14th July. These awards recognise the law firms and conveyancing experts across the UK; Jefferies Solicitors were the only Essex based law firm in this category and to win an award over the course of the evening.

Property Team of the Year was awarded to the team the judging panel felt demonstrated a specialism within conveyancing. The Jefferies’ property team have an excellent reputation for all forms of conveyancing from buying and selling houses to commercial transactions within the local community; this includes the niche area of Leasehold Enfranchisement.

Leasehold Enfranchisement includes extending a lease including negotiating the terms of the lease, helping the leaseholder buy the freehold and assisting freeholders sell the freehold of their flats. It was this specialist department that was specifically recognised.

Sarah Mitchell, Managing Partner, Jefferies Solicitors, commented, “This is a fantastic achievement for Jefferies and in particular the Property Department, who work so well as a team.  I would like to praise our Leasehold Specialists, Amelia Hayes and Callie Tuplin for all the work they do within the department; their expertise, passion and dedication has shone through and resulted in National recognition.”

Amelia Hayes, Associate Solicitor and Leasehold Specialist, said “The leasehold enfranchisement work that Callie Tuplin and I carry out on a daily basis is an extremely niche area of conveyancing and it was this specialist knowledge that the judging panel felt put our team ahead of the larger Nationwide firms; which is an incredible achievement! I feel that the award acknowledges the overall expertise of the property team; from residential conveyancing to the larger scale commercial work that the team carries out.”
