The 2020 edition of the respected and widely-used Chambers High Net Worth Guide was recently published online. Clients, potential clients, referrers and attorneys look forward to publication of the guide each year because it provides clients and potential clients (and those of us who provide services to them) with well-researched, objective information and recommendations for top law firms, attorneys and professional advisors around the world.
We are delighted and grateful that Warner has again earned the highest ranking offered by Chambers (Band 1) for private wealth law in Michigan. We are also happy to report that Warner has the most private wealth law attorneys in Michigan ranked by Chambers (five) and that Warner is the only firm with multiple attorneys (myself and Susie Meyers) among the six attorneys who earned an individual Band 1 ranking in private wealth law in Michigan. We believe that we serve our clients at the highest level, but it is always meaningful to see validation of our work from an independent third party, especially from an international organization.
But what makes this guide useful to clients, and special and meaningful to us, is that the Chambers rankings are based on countless interviews by researchers at Chambers with firm clients, clients of other law firms, attorneys at other firms, business owners and C-suite executives, family office professionals, and professional advisors in a variety of fields. We especially appreciate the direct quotes the guide provides (anonymously) about our firm and individual attorneys from those who were interviewed.
Although Chambers interviews a variety of people each year without disclosing those names to us, we have asked some of you on occasion to serve as references and give of your time if contacted, and we greatly appreciate the time you have spent to answer questions about our abilities and service. We are truly grateful to our clients anytime they have kind words to share about the firm and our attorneys.
We at Warner are honored to serve wonderful, amazing families, family offices and family businesses. For myself and on behalf of our other Chambers-ranked attorneys (Susie Meyers, Carl Dufendach, Mike Van Haren and David Skidmore) and the entire Private Client and Family Office Practice, I thank all of you for your kind words and for the opportunity to serve you, and I genuinely hope this thank you reaches those who have spoken on our behalf.
