Overview


Chambers HNW 2018

The concerns of today’s closely held business owners and high-net-worth individuals are global—both geographically and in the breadth of legal issues that require attention. Such clients have assets, businesses and family members located worldwide. Effective transfer and income tax planning is just the first step in addressing the management and transmission of holdings that may include companies, real estate, farms and ranches, marketable and non-marketable investments, private aircraft, and artwork and other collectibles. Effective implementation of philanthropic goals is also an important objective for many individuals and families. More than ever, wealthy clients need personal legal advisors who provide sophisticated counsel in a complex, dynamic environment, and who offer direct access to the cross-disciplinary resources of a full-service law firm.

The lawyers and non-lawyer professionals in our Private Client & Wealth Management practice have extensive experience providing creative, customized solutions to our clients’ most sensitive and pressing needs. Our guidance is multidimensional—we help clients make critical decisions that affect important personal, business, tax, civic and charitable concerns.
