Warner Ranked One of Michigan’s Top Firms in First Chambers High Net Worth Guide

Warner Norcross + Judd LLP and four of its partners – more than any other firm in Michigan – have been recognized for excellence in private wealth law in the inaugural edition of Chambers High Net Worth guide.

Chambers and Partners debuted the rankings in late June, producing its first publication aimed at the international private wealth market. Law firms and attorneys were refereed by clients for their expertise in family office, charitable planning, wealth transfer, business succession planning, estate tax planning, trust disputes and other areas of private wealth management.

Warner received a Band 1 rating as a law firm. Partners Carl W. Dufendach, Mark K. Harder, Susan Gell Meyers and David L.J.M. Skidmore were also recognized as notable practitioners.

“We are gratified that Warner has been recognized internationally for the depth and expertise of estate planning and wealth management law services that we provide clients,” said Douglas A. Dozeman, managing partner of Warner. “Not only do we have one of the largest Trusts and Estates Practice Groups in the state, we also have an incredibly talented legal team who are skilled in their practice areas and dedicated to providing exceptional client service.”

Warner was called a “very well-respected firm” and “the best in Michigan for estate planning” in the guide, which noted that the firm offers estate, business and succession planning and other services to high net worth individuals. Notable practitioners included:

    The guide will be used by family offices and professional advisers to wealthy individuals, providing objective guidance on an international scale. In addition to the legal rankings, Chambers High Net Worth also features information on accounting and tax firms, private banks, wealth management firms and multi-family offices acting for high net worth individuals.

    London-based Chambers and Partners publishes a series of global guides focused on the legal profession. Warner has been recognized as one of the leading law firms in Michigan by Chambers USA for 14 consecutive years.
