Outer Temple Chambers wins prestigious STEP Private Client Award

Outer Temple Chambers has won the Chambers of the Year category at the STEP Private Client Awards, which took place last night in London.

Held by STEP, the worldwide professional association for those advising families across generations, the Awards are highly regarded as a celebration of excellence across the private client world. All entries go through a rigorous, practitioner-led judging process to select the best in the industry.

The Chambers of the Year category had a strong set of finalists, with Outer Temple Chambers beating New Square Chambers, Old Square Tax Chambers, St John’s Chambers, and Wilberforce Chambers to the prize.

The Judges said: ‘This modern, progressive chambers delivers a fresh and innovative approach to staff and clients. In particular we were impressed by their significant investment in staff training and mentoring.’

Congratulating all the winners, STEP worldwide chair, Patricia Wass TEP said, ‘The Private Client Awards are a marvellous way to promote and celebrate best practice and high standards. We have seen some excellent work over the last year, and our winners – and indeed our runners-up – should be proud of themselves. Our congratulations to them all.’

Over 600 private-client professionals and guests gathered for the Awards at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, which was hosted by TV presenter and former gymnast Gabby Logan.

The event supported Operation Smile for a second year. Donations from entrants raised nearly GBP72,000 for the charity, which provides free surgery for children and young adults born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities.

The evening was sponsored by AP Executive, Bermuda Business Development Agency, Butterfield Trust, Capital Generation Partners, Close Brothers Asset Management, Crestbridge, Equiom Group (Europe), Intertrust, JTC, Katten Muchin Rosenman, Lyxor ETF, Rathbone Investment Management, Schroders Wealth Management, Seven Investment Management, Smith & Williamson Investment Management and Tilney.
