She is highlighted in the guide for her extensive work in the succession planning arena, with one market commentator noting that Christine has “a very good clientele” and is “well thought of in that area.”
- Edward Harley (Yachts & Superyachts, Global-wide – Band 1), who moved up one tier into the top band of his category, has a broad transactional practice that includes yacht matters relating to the construction, purchase and sale of vessels. One client stated that “it is always a very pragmatic and positive experience working with him,” also noting that Edward “works collaboratively and is a good lawyer and dealmaker.”
Additionally, Foster Garvey was recognized as a leading law firm for the global private wealth market in the Yachts & Superyachts category (Global-wide – Band 3), with one client describing Foster Garvey as their “go-to firm in the Seattle area for yacht-related matters.” The firm also advanced into a higher band in this year's guide following its Band 4 ranking the previous year.
