Forsters retains top band Private Wealth status with a record number of lawyers recognised in Chambers 2021 HNW Guide

Forsters continues to be recognised as one of London's leading Private Wealth law firms as it retains its band one ranking in the 2021 Guide. This year’s guide acknowledges the team’s unparalleled next generation talent with new listings for young partners and up and coming senior associates.

Following extensive independent research and analysis, the 2021 Chambers Guide to the Leading High Net Worth lawyers was published on 22 July 2021. The industry’s recognised guide, describes Forsters as “an excellent team, [who] are responsive, proactive and easy to deal with” whilst one market insider comments that: “We often go to Forsters on high-value and complex cross-border matters. They're a really technical group and clients often enjoy working with them."

The guide also recognises Forsters’ breadth of specialisms within Private Wealth with continued strong rankings for Private Wealth Disputes, Family and High Value Residential.

This year we saw a record number of our lawyers recognised in the guide, with 20 Partners ranked and two Associates listed as ones to watch. Our 'foreign experts' in Singapore and United Arab Emirates continue to be acknowledged, alongside our Family team’s mediation practice with Jo Edwards’ inclusion in the ‘Spotlight Table’ of the Family/Matrimonial: Mediators list.

A particular highlight this year, is the inclusion of many of our next generation lawyers, including “Up and Coming” Partner, Emma White, recognised for her expertise in US-related matters Senior Associate Charlotte Evens-Tipping and Family Senior Associate, Dickon Ceadel.
