Our Head of Court of Protection Caroline Manningham has been successful in her promotion to TEP status, meaning a full member of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners (STEP).
STEP is a well-known awarding body for highly recognised Wills, Trusts and Probate qualifications and this new recognition will add a further specialism to the services offered by Caroline and her team.
To achieve TEP status Caroline undertook the specialist Advising Vulnerable Adults Qualification and this, combined with her 18 years’ experience of supporting vulnerable clients as the Head of our Court of Protection team, meant she was successful in securing TEP status.
This new status means that Caroline can now offer further services to her Court of Protection clients and give more in-depth support to their families. Caroline is now qualified to advise her clients on Estate Administration and Trust Administration including supporting her clients through understanding the legalities of wills and inheritance.
Caroline said of the award: “I am proud to have been recognised by such a prestigious body and truly believe that my new TEP status will be to the benefit of my clients and the firm. Being able to offer legal advice to help the clients we support plan for their future is key.
Offering an uninterrupted service will mean that our clients and their families can continue to instruct the same team who they have already built a relationship with and who understand the client’s needs. This will ensure much needed consistency for our clients and their families.”
