Peer review

I have worked with Ursula when she was the Head of the International Private Wealth Team at Child & Child. Ursula was a great leader who made sure everyone in the team would succeed. Ursula always listened to the team and asked for their input. As a family lawyer, Ursula is a formidable and hard working lawyer, no case is complex enough for her. Most of the cases Ursula deals with have an international dimension. Ursula has great communications skills and is focused on delivering a good service to her clients.
