The STEP Code for Will Preparation comes into effect as of today and all STEP members and firms will have to adhere to the Code for Wills.
STEP was set up as an organisation to guarantee and improve the quality of work produced by solicitors and legal representatives the world over, practicing in Estates and Trusts, including Wills and the STEP accreditation is now recognised as a benchmark for quality. Wills, trust and probate lawyers at Anthony Collins Solicitors, Donna Holmes and Alex Elphinston are both members, helping to ensure that clients work with only specialist legal advisers.
Donna Holmes commented: "Anthony Collins Solicitors are proud to have adhered to these principles for some time and we're pleased they have now been formalised in the new Code. This makes the process of writing a Will clearer to clients and ensures they are receiving the best possible standard of service."
This adherence to the Code follows the firm’s success in achieving the Lexcel accreditation and with extensive experience in advising private clients, both Alex and Donna were individually recognised for excellence in their field in recent Chambers and Partner guides. Both are listed as ‘Leaders in their field’ and Donna has also been listed under the impressive category of ‘Associates to Watch’.
