About the awards

The STEP Private Client Awards are your opportunity to demonstrate excellence to your peer group and clients.

These prestigious awards highlight excellence among private client solicitors/attorneys, accountants, barristers, bankers, trust managers and financial advisors.

The Awards are open for both STEP members and non-members to enter and all categories are open internationally and assessed by an independent panel of expert judges. 

The Awards judges assess entries and shortlist up to five nominees per category. They are supported by a Panel of Experts selected by the judges and represent internationally renowned solicitors, lawyers, accountants, financial advisors, barristers and trust companies.

In light of continued disruption as a result of the pandemic, particularly taking into consideration the international nature of the event, we will once again be holding a virtual STEP Private Client Awards ceremony this year. While we are disappointed not to be able to get together in person, the virtual event provides a fantastic platform to showcase excellence within our industry to a global audience. Wherever you are, save the date (23 September) - we look forward to celebrating with you. Details on how to register for the ceremony will follow in the coming weeks.

Entries for the STEP Private Client Awards 2021/22 are now closed. The finalists will be announced in July.
