PRESS RELEASE: Kingsley Napley receives double honours in Citywealth’s Power Women Awards

23 January 2015

Kingsley Napley LLP is delighted to have received two accolades in the Citywealth Power Women Awards 2015 announced last night (22 January 2015).

Senior partner Jane Keir was awarded the “Editor's Choice Award” for her career achievements, notably combining her leadership role at the firm with her successful practice in divorce and family law.

In addition Kingsley Napley as a firm received the “Silver Award for Female Leadership in Professional Services”. It is one of the few law firms to boast both a female managing partner and senior partner (Linda Woolley and Jane Keir respectively) and over half of the partnership is female (52%).

Jane Keir comments, “Kingsley Napley is well known for its client successes in the criminal, fraud and regulatory law space. It is therefore very pleasing for us to be honoured for our strengths in the private client arena as standing out amongst financial intermediary and other City professional firms by one of the leading organisations reporting on this space, Citywealth.  We are featured in The Sunday Times’ 100 Best Companies to Work For, which is incredibly important to us, but it is tremendous that the Citywealth judges were impressed by our supportive culture for women in particular. Not many people know we are a female powerhouse, as well as an excellent law firm, so it is great this fact has now been recognised.”

The Citywealth Power Women Awards recognises individuals and companies who maximise the potential of women in wealth, both by highlighting female leaders in the wealth sector and firms who champion women in wealth. It aims to create a platform for best practice in order to exercise positive social influence on the sector. The 2015 awards were delivered by Baroness Margaret Prosser and Dame Esther Rantzen DBE. Judges included successful men and women in private wealth and professional firms, a professor at LSE and Citywealth founder Karen Jones.  See here for more details.

Several Kingsley Napley partners also participated in the Citywealth Power Women Summit this week, led by professors at the London School of Economics, which looked at the concept of sponsorship and the skills senior women and women under their care need to succeed.
