The excep­tion­al achieve­ments of Wilm­slow firm Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass have been recog­nised by the Law Soci­ety at its annu­al Excel­lence Awards, the most pres­ti­gious awards in the legal calendar.

More than 550 lead­ing Lawyers and their guests joined BBC Broad­cast­er Mishal Husain at the black tie din­ner and pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mo­ny at the Roy­al Hor­ti­cul­tur­al Halls in London.

Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass Mar­ket­ing Man­ag­er, Rick Bar­row, was pre­sent­ed with the award and in doing so; Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass became the first Law Firm in Cheshire to win an Excel­lence Award, and are only the 3rd firm in the North West to do so.

Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass were win­ners in the cat­e­go­ry of Mar­ket­ing & Busi­ness Devel­op­ment. The judges were impressed by Jack­son Bar­rett & Gass’ com­mit­ment to devel­op­ing an approach to sup­port­ing house sales includ­ing a Home Infor­ma­tion Pack of a high stan­dard at a low price, which has suc­ceed­ed in retain­ing old clients, attract­ing new ones and devel­op­ing prof­itable rela­tion­ships with local Estate agents.

The judges described the entry as exhibit­ing the true art of exe­cut­ing a well-planned and well-researched strat­e­gy to build a ser­vice which suc­ceed­ed in mark­ing them apart from their competitors.”

Robert Hes­lett, Law Soci­ety Pres­i­dent said, The stan­dard of entries received for the third annu­al excel­lence awards has been superb and reflects the high lev­el of inno­va­tion that exists across the legal pro­fes­sion. The process of select­ing the short­list was exten­sive due to the vast num­ber of entries this year.

These win­ners have made the pro­mo­tion of best prac­tice an inte­gral part of their work. These awards are part of the Law Soci­ety’s com­mit­ment to pro­mot­ing excel­lence in legal services.”

Mar­ket­ing Man­ag­er, Rick Bar­row, said We are extreme­ly hon­oured to have won the award, which ranks us with some of the biggest firms in the coun­try. We have worked extreme­ly hard to make Home Infor­ma­tion Packs (HIPs) a pos­i­tive part of the Con­veyanc­ing process to ulti­mate­ly assist our most impor­tant stake­hold­ers, our clients.

Instead of sim­ply fol­low­ing guide­lines, we have added extra infor­ma­tion such as the stan­dard sell­er infor­ma­tion forms and guar­an­tees, but most impor­tant­ly we have includ­ed a full local search from the rel­e­vant local author­i­ty, as per­son­al search­es are sim­ply unre­li­able. The prob­lem with HIPs does­n’t lie with the idea, it lies with the exe­cu­tion of those cre­at­ing the packs.”
