York based Roche Legal has won the prestigious Private Client Award at the Yorkshire Legal Awards, announced at a glittering ceremony in Leeds last night.

This was the 20th year of the Yorkshire Legal Awards and Roche Legal were praised for their ground-breaking Private Client service, including the development and launch of a cutting-edge online Will writing and Lasting Power of Attorney programme and specialist legal help for the elderly and vulnerable members of society.

Founder Rachel Roche received the Law Society Sole Practitioner of the Year at the 2018 Excellence Awards and Roche Legal has collected the Socially Responsible Business of the Year at the York Press Business Awards and the Raising the Bar Community Award.

Besides addressing the need to get more people writing their Wills, Rachel and her team have also published a series of free pocket-sized booklets with the first two packed with information about dealing with a relative’s death and looking after the elderly. Six more are planned in the series which can also be downloaded as eBooks. The books are supplemented by nearly 50 downloadable fact sheets on the Roche Legal website.

Rachel Roche said: “We are absolutely delighted to win the Yorkshire Legal Awards Private Client award and to have our commitment to deliver a unique and innovative service for our clients recognised at such a prestigious occasion. I want to pay tribute to the outstanding team we have at Roche Legal who have helped make this success possible and the incredible support we receive from our clients.”

Roche Legal has recently opened a new office in Harrogate in addition to their York base. Rachel and the Roche Legal team can be contacted at their York office on 01904 866139 or at Harrogate on 01423 449778
