Four members of Penningtons’ private client team have excelled in their Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) professional legal exams.
Ailsa Moorhouse, a solicitor in the London office, passed her Taxation of Trust and Estates exam and is now a full STEP member, having won STEP Excellence Awards for achieving the highest marks in England and Wales for the STEP Diploma in two of her papers - Administration of Trusts and Administration of Estates.
Also in the London office, Lucy Edwards achieved a distinction in Administration of Estates and Pria Mehta passed her Taxation exam. Rachel Taylor, a solicitor in the Basingstoke office, achieved a distinction in Administration of Trusts.
STEP is the leading worldwide professional body for practitioners in the fields of trusts, estates and related issues. The society promotes the highest standards through education and training, leading to widely respected professional qualifications.
Commenting on the exam results, Lesley Lintott, head of Penningtons' private client team, said: ”We are delighted by the outstanding achievement of our four solicitors in these challenging papers – no mean feat when working full time and a lovely early Christmas present for us all.”
