Palmers’ Solicitor upskills and offers more for clients

News Article

Palmers Solicitors is proud to announce that Private Client Solicitor Jonathan Saunders is now an associate member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SfE).

This independent, national organisation of solicitors, barristers and legal executives provide specialist legal advice for older and vulnerable people, their families and carers.

Having passed an exam, Jonathan is now waiting until summer 2016 when he will have been qualified for three years before he can upgrade to full SFE membership status and join his colleagues Viju Chhagan, Helen Jago, Lee McClellan and Tim Steele as members.

“This is something that I’ve always wanted to do,” commented Jonathan. “My role sees me involved with succession planning concerning wills and trusts, as well as inheritance tax planning, powers of attorney, probate and estate administration and trust creation and administration, so membership of the SfE is a really good fit for me.”

Partner Lee McClellan added: “We’re very proud of Jonathan and his hard work, especially as he recently passed the first Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) module too. The process of upskilling all staff is important for Palmers as the firm seeks to deliver more for its clients. As a solicitors’ firm, it is essential that we have the relevant legal knowledge in order to deliver the best possible service and SfE membership is just one of many aspects that make us stand out. At Palmers, we believe that the need to continue improving our skills never ends.”
