Newport-based Convey Law is a finalist in two categories at the inaugural British Conveyancing Awards.

The business, based on Stow Hill, is shortlisted in the Mental Health & Wellbeing Conveyancing Firm of the Year and the Best New Training Initiative categories.

The conveyancing company is one of only two Welsh firms recognised at the awards and the only Welsh finalist nominated in two categories.

It has been recognised in the Mental Health & Wellbeing Conveyancing Firm of the Year category for its focus on staff wellbeing as well as for the sterling work of its charity, the Conveyancing Foundation, in promoting wellbeing and kindness in the workplace, most recently through its Be Kind We Care initiative.

Meanwhile, its industry-leading apprenticeship programme and training courses have been rewarded with a finalist place in the Best New Training Initiative category which recognises firms who have risen to the challenge of adapting their training to meet the needs of the last year such as the impact of COVID 19, the switch to remote working and the additional workload caused by the Stamp Duty holiday.

The BCA Awards 2021 were set up by conveyancing trade press bible Today’s Conveyancer to shine a light on individuals, teams and companies who have gone above and beyond to support buyers and sellers during one of the most challenging years the conveyancing industry has ever seen.

Managing director of Convey Law Lloyd Davies said: “After an unprecedented year for the property and conveyancing industry, it’s a huge boost to be shortlisted for two top awards at the inaugural British Conveyancing Awards."

The virtual final will be held on May 25 hosted by BBC News presenter Samira Ahmed.

Convey Law has also been shortlisted for the Medium Employer of the Year award at the Apprenticeship Awards Cymru 2021, which will be decided on June 17, in recognition of its apprenticeship programme.

It has been a record year for the company with 40 new employees taken on by the firm this year.

Lloyd Davies said: “Most of our new staff are trainee conveyancing apprentices, many of them from Wales, and we are continuing to recruit five trainees a month. We anticipate that the business will be 200 strong by next year.”
