  • Posted


We’ve always known that she is one of the best in her field but now her hard work and dedication are being recognised, as Amanda Payne, our Head of Residential Conveyancing has been announced as a finalist in the upcoming CILEx awards.

CILEx (The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives) are holding the prestigious awards ceremony in September at Madame Tussauds in London which will be hosted by ‘Strictly’ favourite Claudia Winkleman.

A finalist in the Legal Expert – Property category, Amanda is delighted to have been nominated. She commented “To be a finalist in this category is such an honour. There are some fantastic people in my industry who go out of their way to do their best for their clients so to be recognised as one of the best is such an achievement.”

Amanda began her career in conveyancing as a Legal Secretary in Nottingham over 30 years ago. She quickly knew that she wanted to advance in this field and chose the CILEx route for her legal education. She is now Head of Residential Property at Fishers and a Director at the Firm.

Amanda’s known for never ceasing in her quest to find a solution for seemingly insurmountable problems; talking to peers, reading about current thought and keeping up to date with  latest legislation. She regularly blogs and comments on social media about her area of expertise and has lectured in Land Law to CILEx students at NCN College Nottingham.

She went on to say, “I’m very excited about the awards ceremony and of course, I hope to win my category. However, I was thrilled just to have been nominated so to be shortlisted and then declared a finalist makes me feel as though I’ve won already!”
