STEP Private Client Awards 2022/23: Forsters’ Private Wealth team shortlisted in five categories

Forsters' Private Wealth team has been shortlisted in the most number of categories of any firm, with five nominations in the STEP Private Client Awards 2022/23:

  • Private Client Legal Team of the Year (large firm)
  • International Legal Team of the Year (large firm)
  • Family Business Advisory Practice of the Year
  • Employer of the Year
  • Digital Assets Practice of the Year

The STEP Private Client Awards are seen as the hallmark of quality within the private client sector, recognising and celebrating excellence among private client professionals. In its 17th year, the awards have seen a record number of nominations, with 337 submissions across 27 countries.

The nominations showcase the breadth of specialisms within our Private Wealth practice and most notably its experience in advising on digital assets, being one of the first firms to develop expertise in this area.

In addition, this year Forsters has been elevated to large firm status. To be recognised as a large firm and shortlisted for the Employer of the Year award, is a testament to Forsters' investment in the recruitment, training and wellbeing of first-class lawyers. This is demonstrated by our 2023 premises move, which has been driven by our desire to create an inclusive work culture and promote effective collaboration between partners and staff, as well as provide a superior service to our clients and enhance our sustainable business practices.

The news follows our success at the 2021/22 Awards Ceremony, where Forsters was named International Legal Team of the Year (midsize firm) and Contentious Trusts and Estates Team of the Year (midsize firm).

The winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on 14 September 2022. The full shortlist can be found here.
