Greenberg Traurig Recognized in 2017 Chambers High Net Worth Guide; 5 Private Wealth Services, Tax Attorneys Ranked Nationally

Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP was recognized in the second annual Chambers High Net Worth (HNW) Guide for its impressive depth and national coverage in its Private Wealth Services team.

According to its website, the Chambers HNW Guide, one of the annual guides by UK-based publisher Chambers and Partners, covers private wealth management work and related specialties in key jurisdictions. Select attorneys and practice areas are included based on interviews from hundreds of lawyers, family offices, accountancy professionals, tax advisers, bankers, investment managers, and high-end real estate agents with comprehensive understanding of the private wealth sector.

The guide highlighted Greenberg Traurig as a popular choice for first-generation wealth creators, assisting with personal wealth planning ahead of IPOs, and acting on international wealth planning work, with a strong practice in advising Latin American clients. One interviewee stated, “I would just say that their service is exceptional and always consistent. That’s one of the most important attributes. It’s national, which is important to us, but more importantly has an international platform.”

In the HNW Guide, attorneys and practice areas are ranked by placement in “bands,” with Band 1 being the highest placement. Attorneys can also be designated as a “Senior Statesman” or “Star Individual.” Greenberg Traurig received the Band 2 nationwide ranking for Private Wealth Law. Diana S.C. Zeydel, global chair of the Private Wealth Services Practice and shareholder ranked nationally in Band 1. Additionally, four other attorneys in the firm were ranked nationally in the guide: Linda B. Hirschson, Private Wealth Services Practice shareholder and New York Estate Planning Group chair; Lawrence H. Heller, Tax shareholder; Norman J. Benford, Private Wealth Services Practice National Chair Emeritus and shareholder; and Jonathan M. Forster, Tax & Business Group shareholder.

Earlier this year, Chambers USA Guide editors recognized 175-plus Greenberg Traurig attorneys in its 2017 USA Guide. Additionally, Greenberg Traurig’s Real Estate Practice received the Chambers USA Award for Excellence in Real Estate.
