Forsters are delighted to announce that Private Client Partner, Emma White, and Dispute Resolution Senior Associate, Ashleigh Carr have been listed in Citywealth’s 2020 Future Leaders Top 100.

Emma is described by her peers as "a very personable and professional individual who ensures her clients' needs are put above all else" and they "would not hesitate to recommend her". Following Emma's promotion to Partner in April this year, she has been widely acknowledged for her standout year working on a range of complex cross border personal taxation and estate planning matters, particularly for US citizens with links to the UK. In addition to the Citywealth listing, Emma has also been recognised in the 2020 Spear's Tax and Trust Advisers index (Rising Star) and ePrivateclient's Top 35 under 35 2020, as well as being shortlisted for 'Partner of the Year' at the Citywealth Future Leader Awards 2020.

Ashleigh has been praised for her client focused approach, providing advice "with empathy and understanding". Her peers and clients comment that she is a "determined and hard working individual who will always go the extra mile" and they are "delighted with her professional input and consequent case outcome". The recognition is another testament to Ashleigh's commitment to her field and strength in advising on Contentious Trusts and Estates. Prior to her promotion to Senior Associate, she was shortlisted at the Citywealth Future Leader Awards 2020 for Associate of the Year and listed in ePrivateclient's Top 35 under 35 in both 2017 and 2019.

This listing recognises the best advisers and managers under the age of 40 in the wealth management and private client industries.
