We’re very proud to once again be sponsoring the National Paralegal Awards. The awards, now in their third year, reward and recognise the outstanding Paralegals throughout the UK.

Whether they are employed, self-employed, a volunteer, a business, or even a company that supports the profession, the awards focus solely on the work and achievements of Paralegals.

As a property search company, we felt it fitting to sponsor the ‘Best Conveyancing Paralegal’ category. Conveyancing paralegals support the work that our network of offices do from day-to-day. They work tirelessly to help complete the conveyancing process, allowing people to move quickly and efficiently.

Throughout the past year, the whole conveyancing sector has been under increased pressure due to the demand from the stamp duty holiday. Our owners and conveyancing paralegals have worked closely together throughout the past year to meet increased demand. Conveyancing paralegals have been imperative to keeping the sector moving throughout the pandemic, and their hard work deserves to be recognised.

Christian Lister, operations director at X-Press Legal Services comments: “The legal system could not operate without Paralegals- they provide both employers, businesses and consumers with a cost-effective way of tapping into legal expertise and support. Their work deserves to be recognised and celebrated, especially over what has been both an unusual and tough past year, and we are proud to be sponsoring the awards.”

If you know a Paralegal who has worked their socks off this year; whether they work in conveyancing, employment or family law, you can nominate them for the awards until 2 July 2021- so be quick!
