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.

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 (pictured), 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.”
