The Lawyer magazine has named White & Case partner Emma Foster (London) in its 2021 "Hot 100" list of top lawyers working in the United Kingdom.
According to The Lawyer, "Members of Hot 100 have just two things in common. The first is excellence… the second is relevance." The list includes "people working on the biggest trials and deals of our time, alongside those who through their efforts are making the legal profession better in one way or another - more sophisticated, more innovative, more diverse, more fair."
In line with the growth of White & Case’s private credit group, Foster is described as "a go-to lawyer for many of the Firm's funds clients, including Blackstone Credit (formerly GSO), and is praised for her tireless support of juniors as they look to follow her lead." The Lawyer reported in Foster’s profile, "she knows the market inside out… with Foster's specialist lending focus helping to secure a raft of mandates…."
Praised for her "keen eye for detail," Foster is a "[White & Case] lifer and key member of its ever-growing banking team."
Compiled in association with AlixPartners and LexisNexis, The Lawyer’s Hot 100 "gathers together the standout lawyers in the UK over the past year – the most daring, innovative and creative lawyers from in-house, private practice and the Bar," according to The Lawyer.
