Pavilion Row becomes an alternative business structure

Private client firm Pavilion Row received approval to become an alternative business structure (ABS) from 1 February.

Pavilion Row, which specialises in wills, powers of attorney and probate, will be licensed and regulated by the specialist property law regulator, the Council for Licensed Conveyancers.

The firm’s will advisers and drafters are either full members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) or have completed its advanced certificate in will preparation and are bound by the society’s Code of Conduct for Will Preparation.

Angus Houston, managing director of Pavilion Row, described the firm’s new ABS status as a significant milestone in the growth of the business.

He said: “Our new ABS status is a significant milestone in the growth of the business. We continue to offer advice based legal services for wills, powers of attorney and probate/estate administration and ensure that all our advisers are STEP qualified, which means that they are recognised as some of the most experienced and qualified individuals in this area of work.”

“The ABS status adds to this by giving further protection to our customers through the Legal Ombudsman and a compensation fund.”
