Cleaver Fulton Rankin plays an integral role in the formation of the Northern Ireland Branch of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners

The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, a global organisation for professional individuals with expertise in the area of trusts, tax and private client work launched a new Northern Ireland Branch in November 2007 with the inaugural meeting taking place at the Hilton Hotel in Belfast. The event was well attended and featured two high-profile speakers, James Kessler QC and Sheena Grattan BL, both of whom are renowned for their knowledge of trust law.

The membership of the newly formed committee of STEP NI is drawn from the legal and accountancy professions and also includes a number of financial advisers. Alastair Rankin, Partner, and Michael Graham, Associate, currently serve on the committee for 2008 as Chairman and Secretary respectively.
