Kelly Noel-Smith

Spear's Review

Forsters’ private client partner Kelly Noel-Smith specialises in tax, governance and succession. Her clients — which include HNW families and their family offices — turn to her for advice on creating and operating asset-holding structures. 

An expert in her field, she regularly contributes to media articles and academic journals and speaks at events held for fellow tax professionals. She is also a corporate social responsibility partner at Forsters and is ‘responsible for the firm’s charity, diversity, well-being and environmental programmes’. 

Prior to joining the legal firm in 2009, Noel-Smith worked as a solicitor at Slaughter & May and Lawrence Graham. 

One adviser featured in the Spear’s rankings says of Noel-Smith: ‘She is an excellent lawyer, highly professional, a specialist in her field and dedicated to her clients’.
