Rollits Associate steps up with qualification
Rollits LLP has announced the success of one of its Associates in becoming a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) less than a year after joining the firm.
Suzgo Kaluluma joined the Private Capital department in Rollits' York office in 2019, having joined Hartlaw LLP in Wetherby after graduating in law from Trevelyan College, University of Durham.
Arriving at Rollits with 10 years' experience and specialising in private client work, Suzgo was already an Associate member of STEP and a member of the Private Client Section of the Law Society and the Solicitors' Association of Higher Court Advocates.
He has now passed his exams to become a full STEP member, which will support his work covering all aspects of estate and succession planning including the preparation of wills, the creation of trusts and care home fee planning.
Suzgo also administers estates and trusts and advises personal representatives and trustees on all stages of the estate administration process and trust administration. His work includes the completion of Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection applications.
Suzgo said: "I am delighted to become a full member of STEP. All of the Private Capital lawyers at Rollits have or are in the process of achieving the qualification and the firm recognises the assurance that it provides to our clients, who benefit from the fact that we are all highly qualified and trusted advisors in our sector".
John Lane, Rollits' partner and head of the firm's Private Client team, said: "We are all very proud of Suzgo's achievement. He has worked extremely hard to secure this qualification alongside applying his expertise and knowledge to his day to day work and this will add to his contribution as a valued member of our team."
