Charlotte is a Partner in Forsters LLP's Private Client team. She advises high net worth international individuals, families, trustees, beneficiaries, family offices and private banks on estate and succession planning, trust law and personal taxation.

Her work focuses on the creation of wealth structures that are bespoke to the international individuals and families that she works with.
