Lupton Fawcett Solicitor Awarded STEP Diploma
Erika Sinclair, a solicitor in the Trust, Wills and Estates department at Lupton Fawcett, is celebrating having been awarded her Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) Diploma in Trusts & Estates, with distinction.
The Diploma, delivered in association with Manchester Business School, is recognised within the industry as the benchmark qualification for those working in the field of trusts and estates. It is awarded to candidates on successfully completing four examinations in trust and estate administration, taxation and accounts. Full STEP membership provides a hallmark of quality for practitioners in this field and will allow Erika to use the designation 'TEP' after her name.
Erika joined Lupton Fawcett in 2010, having taken a career break from practising, for many years inLondon, as an in-house Solicitor. She joined the firm's Trusts, Wills and Estates department, with a view to pursuing her career in the private client field.
Richard Marshall, Managing Director comments: "The award of a diploma, and with distinction, is a great achievement and I am very proud of Erika's determination and success."
Erika comments: "The STEP Diploma has provided me with the opportunity to retrain into an area of law which has always interested me. It has enabled me to gain a strong knowledge base upon which to advise and work with the firm's clients and ultimately to move towards being recognised as an expert within this field."
