A BRADFORD-based solicitor has achieved a qualification that only 133 lawyers worldwide have been accredited with.

LCF Law’s Amjed Zaman has received the STEP Advanced Certificate in Cross-Border Estates, which recognises expertise in the different issues that arise when dealing with cross-border estate planning and succession worldwide.

Amjed said: “I’m very proud to have achieved this specialist qualification, which provides the benchmark in this area of the law.

"Increasing numbers of people have assets and investments outside the borders of England and Wales, so detailed understanding of cross-border issues in estate planning and post-death is ever so important."
