Who won the Craven Business Award for Best Professional Service? We did!


We’re thrilled! Chuffed to bits! Happy as Larry! All our hard work and excellent customer care has paid off! We’ve been helping people for nearly 300 years and continue to do so with the same levels of care, consideration and community values.

Director Declan Hayes said: “We’re thrilled to receive this award. Everything we do takes place within this community, and is for the people of this community. We help our clients buy houses, develop their businesses, organise their wills and affairs to pass to the next generation. To get recognition for the quality of this work is fantastic.”

Jenny Barron said: “We’re very honoured. We’ve been around since 1732, nearly 300 years, so we have a long-lasting reputation to uphold. Hopefully our predecessors will be proud of us!”

Felicity Green said: “Receiving the 2023 Craven Business Award for Best Professional Service is a real boost for our hard-working staff. We are always delighted to receive appreciation from our clients, but this endorsement from our local business community is further welcome recognition of the firm’s commitment to providing expert legal services throughout Craven.”

It’s such an accolade and a real “well done” to all the staff. We have nearly 50 employees, and we pride ourselves with placing a high emphasis on staff and investment in training. And in terms of community, we strongly support Manorlands and Martin House as well as Bradford’s One In A Million charity and other adhoc projects such as sponsoring local football teams. We feel truly embedded in the communities we’re in, and like to organise networking events to get to know other professionals in the area, and support our local towns and make them the best they can be.

For this, we feel recognised…  and it feels rather nice!
