Kirsten Brass included in prestigious eprivateclient NextGen leaders list
12 September 2023
Kirsten Brass, a Senior Associate in the International Private Client team at Bedell Cristin has been named in eprivateclient’s Next Gen’s Leaders list, a definitive annual assessment of the leading young private client practitioners in the UK and across the Crown Dependencies.
The accolade follows on from her inclusion in eprivateclient’s NextGen Leaders list for the Channel Islands which was announced in the summer.
Kirsten, who has ten years’ experience as a private client lawyer, began her career in Scotland where she qualified before moving to Jersey in 2017.
She regularly advises professional trustees and high net worth families on all aspects of Jersey trusts, foundations and the related company and commercial law issues, including company migrations in and out of Jersey. She also has significant experience advising families in relation to their local and international estate planning.
The NextGen Leaders’ List succeeds eprivateclient’s annual Top 35 Under 35 rankings and is open to those with 17 years’ or less experience working in the private client sector. Senior practitioners and the wealth management community were invited to nominate any outstanding UK and UK Crown Dependency based young professionals. From the nominations, the list was compiled by a judging panel from the senior editorial team at PamInsight. There were more than 500 nominations and only 81 made the list.
One who nominated Kirsten, said: “She is passionate about protecting vulnerable clients and regularly advises in relation to capacity, powers of attorney and delegateships. Kirsten is one of only a few lawyers in Jersey who has the breadth of experience to be able to advise clients on their structures and also on the more personal estate planning side”.
Congratulating Kirsten on her success, Nancy Chien, Head of the firm’s International Private Client team in Jersey, commented: ‘I am delighted that Kirsten has been included in this prestigious list of leading young advisors. She thoroughly deserves the recognition for the excellent work she does in meeting the diverse needs of her clients and consistently providing the highest possible standards of client care.’
