Forsters welcomes leading family lawyer Rosie Schumm

Forsters LLP, one of London’s pre-eminent private client firms, today welcomes Rosie Schumm as a partner in its Family practice.

Rosie specialises in advising high net worth clients on complex divorce and financial matters, including those relating to children. Her work frequently has an international dimension, involving trusts, offshore assets and family businesses.

Last week, the firm announced its proposed acquisition of the Gowling WLG London Private Client team, planned to take effect on 1 May 2017. This, together with Rosie's arrival, demonstrates the firm's strong commitment to private wealth.

Jo Edwards, Head of Family at Forsters, said:  "I am delighted that Rosie has joined us and I have no doubt about the huge impact she will have.  She is a natural fit with our existing team, whilst bringing her own unique attributes. Her impressive client base complements our own.  I very much look forward to working with her to further develop our team and the Forsters family offering."

Rosie Schumm commented: "This is an exciting time to be joining Forsters and I am thrilled to be working with Jo and her talented team."

"Our staff, our clients and other friends of Forsters have always had a wide range of charitable interests. The financial help offered by the partners through the Trust reflects a commitment to charity that has come to form an essential part of the firm's ethos. It is exciting to see the variety of good causes supported each year."
