Stronachs has been awarded STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) Platinum Employer Partner accreditation, the highest of three accreditation levels awarded under STEP's Employer Partnership Programme.
To achieve platinum accreditation, a partner must show that the importance of learning & development is championed throughout the organisation.
STEP was particularly impressed with the firm’s commitment to excellence and the development culture at Stronachs. Trent Weber, STEP’s Senior Manager, Employer Partnerships, states:
“I am delighted to advise that we are able to accredit Stronachs LLP as a Platinum Employer Partner. Many congratulations on this very well deserved accreditation. We were especially pleased that Stronachs was able to meet the additional standards required to achieve Platinum level which further demonstrates the firm’s expertise and commitment to excellence in developing its STEP staff.”
Jaclyn Russell, TEP and Head of Private Client at Stronachs said:
“Although we have been accredited as a STEP Employer Partner since 2016, this prestigious Platinum award from STEP recognises that Stronachs provide the fullest training and resources available, allowing our solicitors to develop their professional skills and enabling them to excel in their chosen sphere, which ensures they are able to provide the best legal advice for our clients.”
“To achieve Platinum accreditation, STEP require that each of eighteen individual criteria are met; with the initial focus being on individuals gaining professional expertise which naturally leads to a strong learning culture within the firm. The EPP framework dovetails perfectly with our team ethos and I am very proud of the fact that our efforts have been recognised by STEP, as only a select few Law Firms in Scotland carry this accolade.”
