Manzurul Islam

Manzurul is our Head of Wills & Probate and he will be getting all dressed up to attend the awards ceremony on Wednesday 5th July 2023 at The Rum Warehouse in Liverpool.

Manzurul Islam, Head of Wills and Probate at Mullis & Peake, said: “I’m delighted to be shortlisted for the Lawyer of the Year award. However, it’s not about me at all, but about our wonderful Wills and Probate departments in Havering and Brentwood. Despite being a relatively young team, they have a strong reputation for practical, quality advice and excellent service. The team has grown in size by over 30% in three years and has an enviable reputation as one of the best Wills and Probate departments based on independent feedback thought leading review site Review Solicitors. Being nominated for a national award is just recognition for the team’s hard work and excellent customer care.  Hopefully we can bring the award back to Essex!”

The Wills and Probate were recently finalists for the UK Probate Research Awards (affectionately known as the Probies). We were a finalist for the award Best Probate Law Firm: Medium Firm. Unfortunately we didn’t win the award but were pleased to have been shortlisted. Fingers crossed for this one.
