McManus & Associates, a top-rated estate planning law firm celebrating 25 years of success, today announced that it has been named a Boutique Firm of the Year Finalist by the international Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) for the organization’s 2017/18 Private Client Awards. STEP is a prestigious, invitation-only worldwide organization of estate planners who advise international families on their global interests.
“Being chosen as a STEP Awards Finalist when competing against elite firms across the globe is humbling – we are thrilled to once again receive this recognition,” commented John O. McManus, McManus & Associates Founding Principal and AV-rated Attorney. “The Society requires achievement in multiple categories, such as thought leadership through published works, enthusiastic client testimonies, commitment to advancing the profession, and lasting client relationships. By pressing to outperform in all areas of client expectations, good things will come about – being shortlisted for this award is one keen example.”
Selecting from firms that are “the most outstanding in each category,” the judging panel for the STEP Private Client Awards will announce winners in London at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel during its black-tie dinner and awards ceremony on September 6, 2017.
