‘We’re doing a lot of private work, which we think is the way forward,’ says the warm and highly impressive Rosie Schumm, one of the partners at Forsters. ‘It’s all about that “next gen” narrative. We are a different kind of lawyers.’
Schumm, who’s notable for her presentational skills as well as her expertise in prenups and postnups, moved to Forsters from Wedlake Bell in 2017. Prior to this, she worked at Camilla Baldwin and Penningtons Manches, where she qualified.
Of late, she has developed a cross-jurisdictional practice, focused on handling cases with a US-UK nexus – and when Spear’s speaks to her she’s about to board a plane bound for Los Angeles to address a meeting of 300 trust lawyers. ‘That’s become my forte,’ she explains.
