Specialist dispute resolution solicitor, Emma Winfield, from our Leicester office, has become an associate member of The Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) – a group for lawyers that specialise in this particular area of law.
Emma joined us in 2013 as a Paralegal and qualified as a Solicitor in 2018. During her time with us, she’s specialised in inheritance and trust disputes and now joins three other ACTAPS members in our expert Dispute Resolution team. In the East Midlands, there are ten full ACTAPS members.
“Passing this course is a huge achievement for me, as it’s something that I have worked hard to achieve over the past couple of years. I am really pleased that I am now an associate member as it not only recognises the quality of work that I have produced, but also helps me to further empower my clients and guide them through the complex legal issues that they face.”
ACTAPS was founded in 1997 for lawyers specialising in contentious trust and probate work to provide a forum where professionals could exchange experience, hold seminars and promote enhancement of specific skills. The course is designed to be studied over two years.
Lewis Addison, Partner and Solicitor specialising in inheritance disputes, said:
“We are thrilled that Emma has passed the ACTAPS course to become an associate member, meaning that after two more years of practise she will become a full member. Her accreditation means that we now have four members of ACTAPS in the team at Nelsons which is something we are really proud of as we’re always striving to further our expertise and support our clients.”
