Senior Partner Advocate Barbara Corbett has been named as one of the top 100 International Powerwomen of 2019 by Citywealth.
Citywealth has just unveiled their list of the top 100 International Powerwomen which "recognises women who are power players within the international community". In February this year Barbara had been shortlisted for the Inspirational Woman of the Year Award, but instead, she was surprised to receive the even greater recognition of the Editor’s Choice Award at the Citywealth Powerwomen Awards. She was also recently named a Leading Individual by the Legal 500.
There are not many lawyers on the list and Advocate Corbett is the only family lawyer. Citywealth states "These women are leading businesses, directing multinational teams, or responsible for considerable P&Ls. This ranking is not about diversity for diversity’s sake, it’s about recognizing talented wealth management professionals who so happen to be women."
Corbett Le Quesne has also been nominated for two Citywealth Awards and Advocate Corbett will be attending the award ceremony in January.
Advocate Corbett was among the top 200 last year and this year the list is even more exclusive.
Advocate Corbett's profile on the Citywealth website states:
"Barbara Corbett is a Jersey Advocate and English Solicitor with over 20 years’ experience as a family lawyer. She is the Senior Partner at Corbett Le Quesne. Barbara is a collaborative lawyer, mediator, family arbitrator, international family lawyer and a specialist children’s lawyer. With expertise in all areas of family law, Barbara is committed to helping clients resolve problems in a positive and conciliatory manner, wherever possible. In addition to being recognised as being one of the leading family lawyers in Jersey, Barbara is also at the forefront of developing family law in the island, particularly the separate representation of children and divorce reform."
