Emma Gillies shortlisted in the Chambers High Net Worth Awards 2021

We are delighted to announce that Private Client Partner, Emma Gillies (née White), has been shortlisted for 'UK Rising Star' in the upcoming Chambers High Net Worth Awards 2021.

Nominations for the Awards are based on the results of the extensive research process carried out for the recent edition of Chambers HNW Guide 2021, recognising individuals at the top of their profession and resulted in Emma's inaugural ranking as an "Up and Coming" Partner in the Private Wealth listings.

Following Emma's promotion to Partner in April last year, she has been widely acknowledged for her standout practice. Chambers explain that "Emma has gained a strong reputation for advising high net worth individuals and families on a range of cross-border matters, including estate planning, trusts and succession" with sources commenting, "Emma is great. She is really easy to work with. She's adaptable, she's proactive and always on the ball".

Her work for US citizens with links to the UK continues to command attention, with a Chambers' interviewee describing Emma as "knowledgeable and very connected to US markets. She is a real calm influence on many clients, which is important".

She has also been recognised in the 2021 Spear's Tax and Trust Advisers index (Rising Star), Legal Week's Private Client Global Elite 2021 (One to Watch) 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.

The winners of this year's Chambers High Net Worth Awards will be announced at the ceremony on 7 October 2021, which will be held virtually.
