Anna is a STEP ahead
Chattertons associate solicitor, Anna Howat is celebrating after qualifying as a full member with the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).
STEP members spend their professional lives working with families and tackling real problems. Common issues for members to advise on are providing for a husband or wife after the death of a spouse while protecting the interests of any children; ensuring that a family business will pass safely from one generation to another; care and support for elderly or vulnerable relatives; ensuring that families with interests and family members spread across differing countries are compliant with the laws and tax rules of different jurisdictions; and helping donors support philanthropic causes in an effective way.
STEP members are also required to keep the process of preparing your will open and transparent which Chattertons is committed to throughout all of their branches.
In gaining the qualification, Anna joins Chattertons colleagues Carolyn Byrne, Jacqueline Marshall and Victoria Cohen as full members of STEP.
