Luca del Panta has been listed as a Worldwide Excellence Award winner having achieved one of the highest grades globally in the STEP (Society of Trust and Estates Practitioners) exam for an Advanced Certificate in Cross-Border Estates.

Luca’s grade puts him as one of the top 15 highest scoring students who took a STEP advanced certificate exam worldwide.

The STEP Worldwide Excellence Awards are decided twice yearly following official examination results and this current round related to examinations taken between 1 July and 31 December 2019. The highest-scoring students are categorised as those achieving a mark at distinction level under certificate and diploma qualifications (70 per cent or above).

There were a total of 28 students listed globally as high achievers across all of the STEP international graduate, certificate, advanced certificate and essay qualifications.

The STEP professional qualifications framework is highly regarded within the trust and estates industry, and sitting the exams is the only pathway to achieve full STEP membership.

Luca joined Stewarts in October 2018. He has extensive experience of probate and trust disputes in the UK and various offshore jurisdictions.
