Launched in 2006, Spear’s is a leading wealth management and luxury lifestyle magazine for the ultra-high-net-worth community. Its directory, The Spear’s 500, has been described as ’the Michelin Guide of wealth’, and is comprised of the top private client advisers, wealth managers, lawyers, and service providers for HNW individuals. Rankings are derived from interviews, peer reviews, and analysis from subject matter experts, meaning that all those featuring in the guide are there based on merit.
From the family team, Anna Worwood, head of department, and partner James Stewart, head of strategy for family law, have both been featured, with James achieving the coveted rank of ‘Top Flight Family Lawyer’. In total, nine members of the family law team are present in the guide, including partners Amanda Andrews, Rebecca Carlyon, Emma Willing, Elizabeth Carson, Tammy Knox, and Laura Naser, and consultant Jane Craig.
