Boston associate Rebecca Tunney has been selected as a finalist for the Young Practitioner of the Year Award as part of the 13th Annual STEP Private Client Awards. The awards, which are open globally to both STEP members and non-members, recognize excellence among private client solicitors, lawyers, accountants, barristers, bankers, trust managers and financial advisors. Nominations were assessed by an independent panel of judges comprised of practitioners in the wealth management arena. The winners will be announced at a black tie awards gala in London, UK, on November 7.
STEP is the worldwide professional association for those advising families across generations. It has 20,000 members across 95 countries from a range of professions, including lawyers and accountants.
