Scottish company dedicated to helping people manage probate recognised for exceptional client care

My Probate Partner, an Edinburgh-based business dedicated to helping the Scottish public manage probate, has been recognised for its exceptional standards of customer care by the prestigious Private Client Modern Law Awards.

A middle-ground solution to managing probate independently and hiring a lawyer to carry out the complicated process, My Probate Partner was founded by Mike Davis in 2019 to provide individuals with the support and guidance needed to navigate the after-death admin with the minimum amount of stress, cost and delay.

Since this time, it has empowered over 600 families to manage estates themselves – equating to over £150 million in assets – while receiving an unrivalled 5-star rating for its personalised approach, underpinned by a dedicated online client portal complete with comprehensive resources and checklists.

As such, the forward-thinking business has been shortlisted by the prestigious Private Client Modern Law Awards for ‘Outstanding Client Care’ alongside five other finalists.

Taking place at The Rum Warehouse, Liverpool, on 4th July 2024, the Private Client Modern Law Awards celebrates and champions the incredible work being delivered across the Private Client industry.

Discussing this latest recognition, Mike Davis, Founder and Director of My Probate Partner, said: “Prior to launching My Probate Partner, I worked for a small legal auditing firm but quickly realised that there were a huge number of probate cases that were relatively straightforward, but clients were still paying thousands of pounds for a solicitor to complete a lot of administration work – despite the fact many people were able and willing to do it themselves if they just knew how.

As a result, I felt there needed to be a simpler, easier-to-use service for probate and hence launched the My Probate Partner platform. Over the last 5 years, we have worked incredibly hard to help hundreds of individuals and families quickly and effectively manage the process, while saving money and stress at an already difficult time.

To be recognised by the Private Client Modern Law Awards for our dedication to client care is a real honour and I now look forward to the awards ceremony this July.”

Committed to growing the platform into a ‘Martin Lewis’ type consumer website specifically for probate in Scotland, My Probate Partner has grown by an impressive 160% over the last 12 months alone.

An industry leading event, the Private Client Modern Law Awards will celebrate over 90 finalists across 19 different awards categories.
