Forsters Private Client team endorsed with top band status in Chambers HNW Guide

Forsters' reputation as one of London's leading private wealth law firms has been recognised by its elevation to the top ranking band in the 2017 Guide.

The Chambers High Net Worth (HNW) Guide, published on 14 September 2017 has for the first time ranked Forsters amongst the top band of firms for UK Private Wealth Law. The Guide comments that Forsters is regarded as "one of the powerful forces in the London market" for private wealth work. Forsters now sits at the top of the rankings alongside other leading private client firms in London.  In addition to the firm's top ranking, 16 of Forsters' partners are named as 'leading individuals' and 'foreign experts'.

The Guide also heralds other parts of Forsters private wealth work with continued top ranking for Forsters 'High Value Residential' work and strong rankings for the firm's Family and Contentious Trusts and Probate teams.

Patrick Harney, Partner and head of Private Client at Forsters, said: “We are incredibly happy and delighted to be ranked by Chambers in the top band for Private Wealth. The Chambers HNW Guide is rightly seen as an authoritative guide to the private wealth sector and their judgement on Forsters reflects the quality of our team and our growing reputation in the market."

Paul Roberts, Managing Partner at Forsters, said: “Forsters’ private client group has always been an important part of the firm and has enjoyed consistent growth over the last ten years, culminating in the arrival of the Gowling WLG London private client team this year.  This new ranking is testament to the firm’s growing reputation in the private wealth market.  We now have a team with the experience, expertise and resources to rival any firm in London."
