Claire-Marie Cornford Makes Top Listing
A partner at leading national law firm Irwin Mitchell has received a hat-trick listing in one of the most exclusive rankings for private client specialists.
Partner Claire-Marie Cornford, who is head of the London Will, Trust and Estate Disputes team, has once again been listed in the ‘Ones to Watch’ directory of the 2020-21 Private Client Global Elite rankings.
The Global Elite Directory, in conjunction with Legal Week International, is the list of the world's most respected lawyers advising UHNW clients, all of whom have been recommended by their peers in the industry.
Launched in 2017, the Private Client Global Elite serves as a highly respected global directory of the world’s top private client and trust and estates litigation talent, as well as rising stars within the industry. Each year they receive over 6,000 nominations, which is narrowed down to just 250.
The ranking is Claire-Marie’s third time in a row to make the exclusive listings.
Expert Opinion“I’m so pleased and honoured to have made the Private Client Global Elite directory for a third time. That really is a ringing endorsement of the work our team does at Irwin Mitchell and I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of the 2021 rankings.
“The competition in this area of law is fierce and it has been an especially tough year for many, including our clients, so this bright piece of news to kick off 2021 is very much welcomed.
“I would also like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to everyone who made the listings this year, both here in the UK and internationally.” Claire-Marie Cornford - Partner
This is the second success for Claire-Marie in recent months, who is also shortlisted for the Career Initiative prize at the 2021 Citywealth Powerwomen awards which take place in March.
