Law Society Accreditation News For Our Wills & Probate Team

  • Posted

Our Wills & Probate Team has been appointed as an accredited member of the Law Society’s Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme (‘WIQS’) which provides a best practice quality mark for wills and estate administration advice. 

This esteemed accreditation assures the firm’s existing and future clients that the services they will receive are of the highest standard and excellence. The Law Society has recognised and awarded accreditation as the firm has demonstrated that it fulfils Law Society requirements.  One such requirement is for the firm’s expert lawyers and support team to complete training on WIQS standards.  Such training ensures clients receive the most up-to-date quality legal advice from professionals they can trust.  It gives clients who use the firm peace of mind and confidence that they have chosen the right solicitor. Another benefit that can be relied on by using an accredited firm, is the guarantee that the client will not be pressured into paying for more complex advice that is not in their best interests and that the service is tailored to their specific and individual needs.

Nicola Dalzell, Partner and head of the firm’s Wills and Probate team comments:

“Receiving this prestigious award is a huge achievement not just for our private client team but the whole firm. It reflects the hard work and dedication of our team.  This specialist quality accreditation is an achievement few local solicitors can boast. For present clients it demonstrates that our legal services and practices have now been recognised by the Law Society to be that of the highest standard and completely in sync with their polices. It gives complete confidence and assurance to prospective clients that they are making the right choice when choosing Tilly, Bailey & Irivine”.


Carolyn Tilly, Partner and head of Private Client Services, comments:

“In the year that we are celebrating our 175th anniversary, we are delighted that our hard work and commitment has been recognised. Clients can be confident that their matter will be dealt with to the highest standard as we demonstrate compliance with the Law Society’s protocol.  Our Conveyancing department achieved accreditation with the Law Society a number of years ago and has been successful in re-accreditation each year since.  Across the firm we hold a number of accreditations and I believe this demonstrates the quality of work clients can expect from Tilly, Bailey & Irvine.”
