Amanda Payne, Director of Ashby based law firm, Fishers Solicitors, has been awarded the Legal Expert Property Award at the CILEx National Awards 2019.
Having entered the awards back in July, Amanda was up against nominees of an extremely high standard and had to demonstrate excellence in her role as Head of Residential Property at Fishers. The competition ranged from large City law firms to thriving high street practices and also encompassed people from local government and professional institutions.
Hosted by Strictly Come Dancing favourite Claudia Winkleman at Madame Tussauds in London on 5th September, the prestigious CILEx (The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives) awards evening celebrated its members exceptional talent, innovation and achievement.
CILEx Chief Executive Linda Ford, who was one of the judges for the awards, says: “The entries this year were of a very high standard, giving the judges a tough job to do deciding on who should make the shortlist. It’s encouraging to see the hard work and dedication our members put into providing clients with excellent service and the contributions they are making to the profession as a whole.”
Absolutely thrilled to have won her category, Amanda commented “It means everything to be recognised as a CILEx Property Expert; not only is it a great achievement to be recognised but it also gives me a sense of fulfilment. It’s not just about performing better than others in order to win, it’s performing to my own high ability and standards and now passing on knowledge in land law and the conveyancing process to those more junior to help them achieve great things too.”
Amanda has a well-established client base and reputation in the Ashby area and prides herself in her quest to find a solution for seemingly insurmountable problems. She also regularly blogs and shares her wisdom on social media and has provided lectures in Land Law to CILEx students at NCN College Nottingham.
