Edinburgh Solicitors, Turcan Connell, won a prestigious award at the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) Private Client Awards in London last night for Charity Team of the Year (UK & Ireland). The award is designed to acknowledge a team that provides “outstanding advice to charities” while demonstrating “excellent client service and leadership”.

Partner and Head of Turcan Connell’s Charity Team Simon Mackintosh said: “The STEP Awards are highly regarded on the national stage so we are really delighted to have won this award for Charity Team of the Year. We are conscious that our charity clients continue to find the current economic climate and constantly changing legislative background challenging, so our role is to help them in every way that we can by providing tailored, pragmatic advice. Our dedicated service for grant-making charities, ‘Turcan Connell Charity Office’, which was singled out for particular mention last night, also provides a robust support mechanism to ensure that smaller charities can manage their accounting, administrative and grant-making services to best effect.”

Turcan Connell was also shortlisted for the Multi-Family Office Team of the Year award for the second year in a row.
