Walker Foster – which has an office in Silsden – has joined only a handful of firms in the UK to be awarded membership of the Law Society’s Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme (WIQS).

The scheme is the mark of excellence for wills, probate and estate administration. Walker Foster was awarded the prestigious trust mark following rigorous assessment by the Law Society.

Stuart Rowland, partner and head of private client at Walker Foster, said: “We are delighted to have secured WIQS status.

“It acts as a kite-mark for consumers, showing we have been independently verified as a firm they can trust.

“To achieve it is recognition of our consistently high standards in client service and transparency in process, costs and communications. I have to say this is largely down to the hard work and dedication of all our solicitors and staff.

“The award is further validation of Walker Foster’s credentials in client service following our securing of the Law Society’s Quality Conveyancing Scheme (CQS) status – the mark of excellence for the home buying and selling process.”
