Humphries Kirk celebrates solicitors completing their STEP qualifications

| Published on July 2, 2020

We’re delighted to be able to congratulate two of our talented solicitors who have successfully passed their STEP (Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners) examinations. We would also like to celebrate the achievements of another individual who has completed her Diploma in Administration of Estates, and is well on her way to completing the full STEP qualification soon.

To gain these well-regarded qualifications, each of our solicitors must receive specialist training and be able to demonstrate great experience in inheritance and succession planning.

The latest HK solicitors to achieve STEP qualifications are;

  • Orla Laurenson, a Solicitor at our Dorchester office, has completed her final STEP exam which means she will now become a full member of STEP after previously being an Affiliate Member.
  • Laura Edwards, a Private Client Solicitor in our Parkstone office, has also successfully completed her final STEP exam.

The solicitor who will be achieving it next;

  • Magdalena Lipinska, a Solicitor at our Bournemouth office, has gained a diploma in Administration of Estates. We’re sure it won’t be long until she achieves her full STEP qualification too.

Adam Scott, Consultant at our Bournemouth office commented;

“The Society of Trusts and Estates Practitioners is a renowned global body of experts in the field of private client. The process of learning and examinations required to become a member is rigorous and anyone who becomes a full STEP Member (who will then be denoted as a ‘TEP’) should be very proud.

At Humphries Kirk, we encourage as many of our fee earners as possible to become members of STEP to show our commitment in providing the best advice to families and helping them plan for their futures.

I am very pleased to congratulate Orla and Laura on becoming full Members of STEP and also to Magdalena for her excellent distinction in her latest module which will no doubt follow in her becoming a full STEP member in the near future.”

Humphries Kirk has offices in Bournemouth, Parkstone, Poole, Swanage, Wareham, Dorchester and Crewkerne, a consulting room in London and an international network of lawyers. Visit www.hklaw.uk for more information.
