Nationwide Ranking: Tier 3
This strong national player's influence continues to grow in this sector. Noted for its impressive portfolio, the team in Chicago caters to the needs of prominent families and individuals. The tax, employee benefits and trusts and estates groups work as one, offering clients a comprehensive wealth management service. David Handler has been busy in estate planning and wealth transfer work of late, a particularly fertile area due to the decline in interest rates and asset values resulting from the current economic climate. He is praised for his skills of analysis and commitment to clients.
