Leading family lawyer Rosie Schumm to join Forsters

Forsters LLP, one of London’s pre-eminent private client firms, has appointed Rosie Schumm as a partner in its Family practice. She will be joining the firm in early 2017 from Wedlake Bell LLP.

Rosie is a highly regarded family lawyer with 10 years’ specialist experience, who has been recognised in Legal 500 and Spears. Her experience in acting for wealthy individuals, often in cases with an international element, will further strengthen the respected Family team, headed by Jo Edwards, which deals with complex family matters for high net worth individuals, in many instances across multiple jurisdictions.

Jo Edwards, Head of Family at Forsters, said: "I am delighted that Rosie is joining our team, having worked with her in the past and seen how her practice has thrived since. She is a fresh breed of family lawyer - exceptionally bright and in tune with her clients' needs, a robust litigator when the case requires it but adept at negotiating settlements too. She is an excellent fit with our existing team and her client base complements our own. I look forward to working with her to grow the team further."
