Gold award for private client lawyer14 Nov 2016
Senior Associate, Henry Wickham, has been named a Gold Award winner in Citywealth’s Future Leaders Awards announced at a prestigious ceremony in London.
Henry, a member of the firm’s private wealth and fiduciary group, was already included in Citywealth’s list of young professionals under the age of 40 identified as among the most talented working in the private client industry today. Following publication of the Future Leaders’ List, intermediaries were invited to vote for their preferred candidate, resulting in Henry being named the Gold Award winner in the ‘Lawyer of the Year IFC Associate’ category.
This latest accolade follows closely on Henry’s election to vice chairman of the STEP Jersey branch committee.
Since joining Bedell Cristin from City law firm, Lawrence Graham LLP, Henry has been at the forefront of developments in private client services at the firm, including the establishment of our sanctions team, which is unique to the Jersey legal market.
He has also been a mentor to many STEP students, supporting those taking STEP diplomas and supervising junior lawyers, while he took a prominent role in support of the firm being awarded both STEP Training Partner and Gold Training Partner accreditations, a rare accolade for firms worldwide.
Described in Legal 500 as ‘very accomplished, well organised and extremely responsive,’ and by one client as ‘a delight to deal with – both in terms of technical advice and delivery from a work point of view’, Henry is also listed as a prominent figure in the leading lawyers’ category of Citywealth leaders list 2015 and 2016.
Managing Partner David Cadin commented:
"We are all delighted for Henry that he has been recognised for his talents. He has not only made a telling contribution to the development of the business, he is highly regarded by his clients and has an impressive and respected role within the STEP organisation in Jersey, including a proven commitment to nurturing career development among his colleagues."
