Michael Armstrong and John FitzGerald receive the STEP Excellence Award

We are delighted to announce that Private Client Senior Associates, John FitzGerald and Michael Armstrong, have received STEP Excellence Awards.

  • John FitzGerald has received the STEP Excellence Award for his Advanced Certificate in UK Tax for International Clients. This acknowledgement is particularly special given that it was John's final exam and he has now officially been admitted to STEP.
  • Michael Armstrong has received the STEP Excellence Award for his Advanced Certificate in Advising Vulnerable Clients. Despite having already completed his diploma and being admitted to STEP, Michael commendably decided to take this additional exam to further develop his expertise in advising on mental capacity issues.

The STEP Excellence Award is given to the top scoring student at distinction level in each of the STEP exams worldwide each year.
