News Bedell Cristin's growing international private client team is recognised in Chambers High Net Worth rankings

Chambers and Partners have launched the latest annual High Net Worth (HNW) rankings last week (22 July) which showcases top and up-and-coming lawyers and law firms for international private wealth.

Five senior members of Bedell Cristin's global team – Fraser Allister, Edward Bennett, Nancy Chien, Alasdair Davidson and Andrew Miller – have achieved individual rankings and received excellent feedback from clients, intermediaries and peers.

These latest rankings are testament to the firm's commitment to strengthen our global team and service the growing demand for private wealth services globally. They've been published at an exciting stage of the team's growth – following several recent senior appointments and with more senior hires to come, which promises to further strengthen the global international private client (IPC) offering.

Tim Pearce, Global Managing Partner, said:

"I'm delighted to see the rankings of Andrew, Alasdair, Fraser, Edward and Nancy at this stage in the growth of our global team. Having worked with many of our IPC clients for decades, we have an excellent knowledge of succession and next-generation planning, creating and amending structures so that they remain fit for purpose and relevant in the modern world. I look forward to seeing further growth and accolades from the team in years to come."

Feedback from clients, intermediaries and peers can be seen below, and the full Chambers HNW 2021 rankings can be accessed here.

Chambers Review – High Net Worth 2021

Fraser Allister | Managing Associate | Cayman Islands
"Fraser is really an exceptional rising star. He is very thorough and practical but very accurate, and his attention to detail is extremely strong."

Edward Bennett | Partner | Jersey
"A very experienced practitioner."

Nancy Chien | Partner | Jersey
"She's brilliant."
"Really technical and easy to deal with, but also really human in her approach to things."
"Her ability to speak Mandarin is a big differentiator."

Alasdair Davidson | Partner | Guernsey
"No-nonsense and always has an eye on the use of arguments and where that is going to get his client. He always speaks in simple terms. He is a real advocate."
"Responsive, sensible and always helpful."

Andrew Miller | Partner | Cayman Islands
"Andrew is very commercial, probably one of the most commercial trust lawyers in Cayman."
"Always to the point and super result-oriented."
"When families want to make investments and do other things that draw on skill sets broader than classic trust administration, Andrew is one of the foremost people, certainly on the island, in that respect."
