Truro lawyer named to national body

Graham Murdoch

Graham Murdoch, private client partner at Stephens Scown solicitors in Truro, has been accepted as a member of the national association Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE).

SFE is an association of lawyers who specialise in legal services for elderly people and their carers. Membership gives clients the assurance that Stephens Scown has wide ranging expertise in providing legal services for older people.

SFE members are required to have a wealth of experience within this key legal area and need to have spent a substantial amount of time working for elderly clients.

The aim of this national association is to improve the knowledge and service provided on legal issues including inheritance tax planning, wills, powers of attorney, long term social and health care and other retirement issues.

Murdoch, who heads Stephens Scown’s private client team in Truro, is a member of the Society of Trusts and Estate Practitioners and also a Notary Public. He said: “I have been specialising in legal services for the elderly for many years.

“I am looking forward to continuing my development in this area so that I am able to give my clients and colleagues first class legal advice in a field of law which is constantly evolving as the requirements of the elderly population change.”
