New for 2021:
Global Elite Recommends


Over the last few years, we have had so many outstanding advisers nominated by our Global Elite. This year, for the first time, we are introducing ‘Global Elite Recommends’ into our directory; an initiative for our lawyers to nominate their leading advisers, including Accountants, Asset Managers, Trustees and Family Office.

Private Client Global Elite is the list of the world’s elite lawyers advising UHNW clients.


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.

In 2020, we received more than 6,000​ entries, resulting in recommendations of 300 Elite Lawyers, 150 Ones to Watch and 200 Elite Recommends. The directory is released each year in hardcover, with profiles additionally accessible and searchable online.

The Directory is used by the legal community looking for referrals, family offices and professional advisers.

Our Private Client Directory was created with the awareness that referrals and recommendations are absolutely key to the private client sector. As such, we invite the private wealth community to share their own recommendations of their top lawyers and advisors, after which we narrow them down to those who make it into the Directory.

In previous years we have had application forms, which were purely so that people could register their interest with us and so that we would have their information on hand should they be recommended. Unfortunately applications do not guarantee entry into the Directory and so this year we have decided against them.

Instead, we will open up recommendations to our community at the end of April 2021. These will be open for a few months, and we will encourage private client lawyers to recommend their peers, as usual.

If you would like to increase your chances of getting into the directory, unfortunately the only way is to encourage your peers to recognise your achievements when they come to their recommendations.
