She has a track record of advising ultra-high net worth individuals both in the UK and internationally. Ridgway combines this global outlook with expertise in advising trustees on matters regarding landed estates, as well as in advising families and individuals on issues such as trust, succession, and tax planning, the firm continued.

clients with their complex and multi-faceted onshore and offshore
Welcoming her to the firm, Sarah von Schmidt, private client partner at Farrer & Co, said: “Our clients’ needs are often set against an international backdrop, meaning that our work regularly crosses borders and jurisdictions. Jennifer has cross-disciplinary technical expertise that plays to the complexity of such work, and we are thrilled to have someone of her reputation and standing in our team.”
Ridgway added: “I’m excited to support Farrer & Co in expanding its international outlook and strategy, using my experience working with trustees and families both in the UK and abroad to help match the firm’s prestige in the UK and overseas.”
