Forsters LLP, one of London’s pre-eminent private client firms, has welcomed Rosie Schumm as a partner in its family practice.

Rosie specialises in advising high-net-worth clients on complex divorce and financial matters, including those relating to children. Her work frequently has an international dimension, involving trusts, offshore assets and family businesses.

Recently, the firm announced its proposed acquisition of the Gowling WLG London private client team, planned to take effect on 1 May 2017. This, together with Rosie’s arrival, demonstrates the firm’s strong commitment to its private wealth offering.

Jo Edwards, head of family at Forsters, said: ‘I am delighted that Rosie has joined us and I have no doubt about the impact she will have. She fits in so well with our existing team and her client base complements our own. I look forward to working with her to further develop our team and offering.’

Rosie Schumm said: ‘This is an exciting time to be joining Forsters and I am thrilled to be working with Jo and her talented team.’
