Forsters Family partners named as Leading Family Lawyers in Spear's 2019 listings

Head of Family, Jo Edwards, and fellow Family partner, Rosie Schumm, have been listed as 'Top Recommended Family Lawyers' in the prestigious 2019 Spear's Indices, which showcase the 50 top family lawyers for high net worth individuals.

A 2018 nominee for Spear’s Family Lawyer of the Year, Jo heads a growing department at Forsters and is recognised by Spear's as being highly visible in the media. Looking back on another strong year for the market-leading Family team, which saw outstanding growth of 26%, Jo describes the last 12 months as being "absolutely phenomenal", pointing also to the arrival of Simon Blain and Matthew Brundson Tully as the team continues to grow into 2019.

Described as being "warm and highly impressive", Spear's highlight Rosie's "notable presentational skills as well as her expertise in prenups and postnups" before going on to point out her rapidly developing "cross-jurisdictional practice, handling cases with a US-UK nexus". 

"These are uncertain times for all of us and our thoughts are with those who have been affected by the outbreak. As a firm our priority is the health and wellbeing of our partners and staff and of everybody we work with – our clients, our contacts and our suppliers."
