Bedell Cristin partners have been shortlisted in the WealthBriefing European Awards 2015.
Zillah Howard and Lisa Springate, partners at law firm Bedell Cristin, are shortlisted in the Leading Advisor category of the WealthBriefing European Awards 2015.
Showcasing ‘best of breed’ providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the awards were designed to recognise companies, teams and individuals which the prestigious panel of judges deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence’ during 2014.
Zillah Howard, a leading lawyer in the international private client group and Lisa Springate, an experienced member of the commercial litigation team, are also recent award winners. Zillah was chosen ‘Best in Offshore’ at the Europe Women in Business Law Awards in 2014, 2013 and 2012 and Lisa was named the winner of the ‘Woman of the Year’ (Business Growth) at the Citywealth Power Women Awards 2015.
ClearView Financial Media’s Chief Executive, and Publisher of WealthBriefing, Stephen Harris, was first to extend his congratulations to the shortlisted firms.
He said: “The firms who have been shortlisted in these awards are all worthy competitors, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations. These awards are judged on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics. That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature. These awards will recognise the very best operators in the private client industry, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process - such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management. Our aim is to make these annual awards one of the brightest and keenly contested highlights in the wealth management calendar.”
Winners will be announced at a gala awards dinner which will be held in London on 30 April at The Guildhall.
