From the Private Client and Family Office Group
Chambers and Partners recently released the 2022 edition of the Chambers High Net Worth Guide with its rankings of law firms, attorneys, accountants and other professional advisors around the world. The rankings are based on the research Chambers performs each year, and the information in the guide is designed to help high net worth individuals, families and wealth management advisors find professionals with the right skills and experience.
We are delighted to have earned a Band 1 ranking again this year for Private Wealth Law (the highest ranking Chambers offers). We are also pleased that six of our attorneys in the Private Client and Family Office practice were ranked individually for their work with ultra high net worth individuals and families: Mark Harder, Laura Jeltema, Susie Meyers, Ric Roane, David Skidmore and Mike Van Haren. Three of these attorneys earned individual Band 1 rankings, including Ric Roane for Family/Matrimonial: High Net Worth, and Mark Harder and Susie Meyers for Private Wealth Law.
Chambers interviews hundreds of people in Michigan during their research process in order to understand the work being done by professional advisors. They speak with some of our firm’s clients and attorneys, and they interview business owners and executives, family office professionals, attorneys and clients at other firms, and professional advisors who serve high net worth clients in a variety of areas.
We believe that our clients choose to work with us because we are collaborative, provide exemplary client service and have unparalleled legal acumen in serving the needs of ultra high net worth individuals, families and their related entities. And it is wonderful to see that our rankings validate our belief — those interviewed by Chambers recognized us for our strong relationships with clients, responsive and professional client service, collaborative team culture and our excellent technical knowledge and skills. It is gratifying to receive this recognition from such a respected international organization.
Although we do not know who spoke on our behalf, we want to say thanks to those who gave their time to participate in interviews with Chambers and provide insight into our practice group’s skills, service and culture.
The Private Client and Family Office Group is honored to serve amazing families, family offices, family businesses and foundations. We truly appreciate your feedback and support.
