Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Welsh Law Firm Named as Best in UK Following Hat Trick of Award Wins


Howells Solicitors have swept the board winning three UK conveyancing industry awards including Best Overall Conveyancing Firm of the Year at the recent Law Firm Services Awards in Birmingham.

It is the second consecutive year the law firm with six offices across South Wales has won the title, a first for any UK law firm and one that positions the company as a market leader in the conveyancing industry.

Howells Solicitors were also named as the Best Regional Conveyancing Firm of the Year in Wales and the West Midlands and the Best Direct Conveyancing Firm.

lfs2The Judging panel said of Howells Solicitors, ‘A clear winner in every category of assessment. A company that has established a definite identity coupled with excellent execution of business. Howells submitted an impressive application showing a progressive firm who have their staff and clients at the heart of everything they do. Compliance is of upmost importance to them.’

Mark Hobbs, managing director of Howells Solicitors is delighted to have won the Awards for a second time.

“Winning the three awards last year was very special and we certainly didn’t expect to repeat that level of success. This year is our 20th anniversary and being named once again as the Best Overall Conveyancing Firm of the Year is fantastic recognition for everyone at Howells Solicitors who has contributed towards our success during this time.”

“Over the last 12 months alongside other conveyancing companies and those involved in the housing market we have had to deal with a surge of investors and landlords all wanting to purchase properties before the changes in Stamp Duty Land Tax in April, the uncertainty in the market both pre and post Brexit and the subsequent interest rate changes which has impacted on the number of conveyancing cases we deal with. Our conveyancing teams have worked incredibly hard to maintain our high standards of customer satisfaction whilst our business development department has nurtured our local client base as well as developing relationships across the whole of the UK with introducers and with direct customers.  Winning the Best Regional and Best Direct Conveyancing Awards is testament to this.”
