Chambers and Partners has once again recognized McGuireWoods as one of the top private wealth services firms in the United States in its prestigious High Net Worth Guide. McGuireWoods earned a nationwide ranking — as it has each year since the guide’s 2016 launch — and ratings for Virginia, North Carolina and the District of Columbia.
Chambers also selected partners Michael Barker, Ben Candland, Jean Gordon Carter, Andrea C. Chomakos, Kristen Frances Hager, Meghan Gehr Hubbard, Michele McKinnon, William Sanderson and Gino Zaccardelli for individual honors.
Carter and McKinnon received Band 1 state rankings, the highest Chambers awards. The firm earned Band 1 state rankings for Virginia and North Carolina.
Clients and peers praised the firm’s lawyers for their experience, insight and responsiveness in interviews with Chambers researchers.
“McGuireWoods does a fantastic job,” said one respondent. “They are responsive, very knowledgeable, and they are very good at being pragmatic and getting a result that works for their clients.”
“McGuireWoods is a firm with an amazing depth of truly first-rate lawyers in many disciplines,” another interviewee added.
McGuireWoods’ private wealth lawyers advise high-net-worth clients, nonprofits, fiduciaries and businesses in tax and wealth planning and are influential voices in shaping U.S. tax policy.
“Year in and year out, our private wealth services lawyers set the standard for excellence, and we are proud that Chambers and Partners has once again recognized them for their leadership and outstanding client service,” said Gerald V. Thomas II, chair of McGuireWoods’ Tax & Employee Benefits Department.
