The Spear’s Indices
Top Recommended Family Lawyers
A previous Spear’s Family Lawyer of the Year, Suzanne Kingston has spent much of the year advising trustees on ‘divorce-proofing’, stress-testing and fine-tuning their asset-holding structures against drastic circumstances. She recently advised one UHNW private equity principal with ‘really complex international tax issues’, and remains busy with a wide range of global prenups. Kingston highlights an ‘evolution’ out of court, as more HNWs sign up to a ‘hybrid’ model of mediation where the lawyers are usually present and more contiguous negotiations are encouraged. ‘It’s going to be a really interesting model for family – and it’s great to be at the cutting edge of that,’ she says.
