The firm is pleased to announce that Partner, Philip Elliott, has qualified as a mediator in family law. As such he helps couples to mediate financial matters in respect of separation or divorce and the arrangements for their children.
The aim is to help them achieve resolution as quickly, fairly and cost effectively as possible. Through this parties achieve better understanding and communication and Philip works with them to build new lives. This is achieved by explaining the information and documentation that will be required and then assisting them to focus on reaching an agreement.
We are delighted also to announce that Ann Pryer, head of our Private Client department and one of our Partners, has passed the STEP Advanced Certificate in Will Preparation. This is a ground-breaking qualification offered by the Society for Trust and Estate Practitioners which is a practical course underpinned by academic rigour. In order to pass Ann was required to demonstrate detailed knowledge and understanding of the law and tax implications of estate planning.
