The firm is delighted to be shortlisted as finalists in the following categories:

  1. Contentious Trusts and Estates Team of the Year
  2. Property Team of the Year (recognising our Property Litigation team’s work)
  3. Litigation Rising Star, Forsters’ Senior Associate, Caroline Harbord

Managing Partner Emily Exton commented: “It is a great pleasure to see colleagues across the firm recognised as finalists in three categories in the British Legal Awards 2020. Over the last year, including throughout the current pandemic, our teams have worked incredibly hard to ensure that our clients receive the highest levels of service and advice. Being recognised across our principal areas of practice is confirmation of our pre-eminent status in the Real Estate and Private Wealth sectors and Caroline's shortlisting as Rising Star is testament to our continued investment in the training and professional development of staff so as to ensure we consistently produce a highly-skilled next generation of lawyers.”
