Katherine Forster recognised in Private Client Practitioner’s Top 35 Under 35

Private Client Practitioner’s Top 35 Under 35 recently published its definitive annual list of young private client practitioners. Katherine Forster, a solicitor specialising in Tax and Wealth Planning and member of Mishcon de Reya's Private Department, has been named as one of the Top 35 under 35 young and upcoming private client advisory professionals alongside other lawyers, accountants, trustees and professional intermediaries.

Katherine is a trusted advisor to colleagues and clients alike, all of whom value her detailed technical knowledge and her experience in dealing with the most unusual cases. Katherine has forged a particular specialism advising on UK tax for foreign domiciliaries in relation to their offshore structures. She is frequently quoted in the professional press, commenting on tax developments, and regularly speaks at seminars on complex tax issues. Katherine was involved in Mishcon de Reya's successful lobbying of the Government regarding the new statutory residence test and was also closely involved in the HMRC consultation on IHT disclosure. She is currently sparring with HMRC in relation to the taxation of bankers' bonuses following a successful litigation action won by Mishcon de Reya.

Andrew Goldstone, Head of the Tax and Wealth Planning group commented: 'We are delighted that Katherine has been recognised with this award. She is a key member of Mishcon de Reya's Tax & Wealth Planning team and she combines a strong client focus with excellent technical knowledge.'
