Multi-award-winning Roche Legal has been recognised as an “employer partner” by STEP, the global professional association for practitioners who specialise in family inheritance and succession planning.

Founder Rachel Roche is delighted that Roche Legal, which has offices in York and Harrogate and celebrates its sixth Birthday later this year, has been recognised with this prestigious partnership.

Rachel Roche said: “STEP works to improve public understanding of the issues families face in this area and promotes education and high professional standards among its members. STEP members help families plan for their futures, from drafting wills to issues surrounding international families, protection of the vulnerable, family businesses and philanthropic giving. Full STEP members, known as TEPs, are internationally recognised as experts in their field, with proven qualifications and experience.”

Jenni Hutchinson, head of the employer partnership programme team at STEP, said: “Roche Legal has demonstrated a supportive learning culture in the development of their STEP staff and we are delighted to welcome them to the STEP Employer Partnership Programme as an accredited employer partner.”

As part of its commitment to outstanding client service, Roche Legal has recently created the role of Client Concierge who will be the first point of contact, taking all relevant information and arranging a free 10 minutes consultation. “We are excited about this appointment which we believe is going to have real benefits for new and existing clients:” explained Rachel Roche. “We are committed to delivering exceptional service to clients and creating a challenging and rewarding environment for our staff.”
