Stronachs LLP in Aberdeen has achieved specialist accreditation for its Private Client team, becoming one of only five Scottish practices to be recognised as an Employer Partner by STEP.


The accreditation demonstrates the full service law firm’s dedication to promoting excellence within the department and providing clients with specialised legal advice in the areas of Trusts and Estate planning.

It also recognises the firm’s commitment to helping employees gain individual STEP accreditation, which has already been achieved by five members of the Private Client department.

A further member of the team was named as one of the top two Scottish candidates in the Trusts (Law and Practice) exam earlier this year, and is now one assessment away from achieving full STEP accreditation.

Carol Crowther, Stronachs LLP partner said: “We recognise the need for our solicitors to have the fullest training and resources available to develop their professional skills, and to ensure they are able to provide the best legal advice for our clients.

“We are proud to have cultivated a supportive and nurturing environment which allows our employees to further their experience in their chosen specialisms”

“This formal award from STEP recognises that we have excellent staff training programmes in place to ensure that our teams are equipped to provide a reliable, high-quality service to clients.”

Jenni Hutchinson, head of the Employer Partnership Programme team at STEP said: “Stronachs has demonstrated a supportive learning culture in the development of their STEP staff and we are delighted to welcome them to the STEP Employer Partnership Programme as an accredited Employer Partner”. 

STEP is the worldwide professional association for advisors who specialise in family inheritance and succession planning. The organisation runs a number of qualifications and has more than 20,000 members across 95 countries from a range of professions, including lawyers, accountants and other specialists.
