Sonia Shah, Senior Associate, based in our Jersey office has been named in the STEP Excellence Awards. Sonia has received global recognition after being awarded the highest-scoring international graduate in the International Trust Management diploma – DL+ worldwide.
The STEP Excellence Awards recognise the top-scoring students at distinction level (70 per cent and above) per STEP exam or assignment, essay route, and the highest-scoring graduates across each of the STEP diplomas, aggregated across the four diploma papers. The individuals announced represent the best and the brightest practitioners, many of whom will be names to watch out for in the years ahead and Sonia is unquestionably one of them.
Sonia has established a strong reputation for her commercial and contentious trusts litigation work, regularly assisting with complex applications and trial work before the Royal Court and Court of Appeal in Jersey. She works across numerous cases and advises leading onshore law firms, fiduciaries and high net worth individuals on trust, commercial, insolvency and regulatory matters and has also acted for trustees and beneficiaries internationally.
Tim Pearce, Global Managing Partner, said:
