In what promises to be a transformative year for conveyancing in the UK, the ESTAS is joining forces with the well-known Bold Legal Group to stage a one-day conference for property lawyers, law firms and key decision makers.
The event - to be held on October 18 at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane in London and called BOLD LEGAL LIVE! - will be a one-day information event with what the organisers call “a TV studio atmosphere, giving delegates an informative, educational, motivational and inspiring experience.”
“The conveyancing process will evolve and change throughout 2019 and beyond. Busy property lawyers not only need to know what is going on but need to have a say in what is going on because any changes made are likely to affect their livelihoods. The conference will give them the opportunity to listen to and quiz those that will be implementing and making those changes” explains Rob Hailstone, chief executive of the Bold Legal Group.
Hailstone, arguably the best known figure in the residential conveyancing sector, has over 40 years experience in the industry and sits on a range of advisory panels, including those initiated by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to develop plans to reform the house buying process.
The conference will be followed by the prestigious ESTAS Conveyancer Awards, sponsored by SearchFlow, hosted by TV property expert Phil Spencer and attended by an anticipated audience of over 400 property lawyers.
Simon Brown, founder of The ESTAS Group - a customer review platform and award scheme for property professionals - says the conference is a natural extension of the awards event.
“Rob’s experience and knowledge of the sector together with our expertise in live events means this will be a day not to be missed. We already have some exciting ideas to make the day as relevant and valuable as possible which we will be revealing soon.”
