The managing partner of the ‘transatlantic powerhouse’ that takes her name, Laura Devine is one of the key players in this field. Depending on whom you talk to, she is either ‘the best’ (Who’s Who Legal) or, more curiously, ‘Queen of the ritzy’ (The Times) – but however it’s phrased, there’s a consensus that she is very much a go-to lawyer. She’s even found her unique legal skills to her own benefit: she was awarded her very own O-1 Visa — a privilege granted only to aliens who possess ‘extraordinary ability’ in their field. Devine is qualified in both the UK and the US, making her a first choice for HNWs with UK and US immigration requirements. Laura Devine also has an associated office in New York called Laura Devine Attorneys.
