It is the second year running that we have won the Private Client Legal Team of the Year award and the first time to be shortlisted and winner of the Contentious Trusts and Estates Team of the Year award.

Forsters was presented with the awards at the STEP Private Client Awards which took place in London on 25 September. Held by STEP, the worldwide professional association for those advising families across generations, the awards are highly regarded as a celebration of excellence across the private client world. All entries go through a rigorous, practitioner-led judging process to select the best in the industry.

The Judges described Forsters as ‘an unsung hero’ that has developed a formidable practice, with the contentious side being a particular jewel.
