Chambers High Net Worth announced its annual rankings for 2019 last night, which include the Neal Gerber Eisenberg Private Wealth practice group and three attorneys. Neal Gerber Eisenberg congratulates the partners ranked in the Private Wealth Law in Illinois category: Lawrence Richman, Susan Goldenberg and Eric Mann. The firm is also pleased that the practice has been distinguished as one of only nine firms recognized in Illinois.
Chambers & Partners, one of the world’s leading legal directories, conducts independent research that relies on feedback from industry leaders and clients to identify the top attorneys and law firms from around the world. Starting three years ago, Chambers began publishing boutique guides separate from its traditional geographically based lawyer rankings.
Chambers describes the Private Wealth team as handling “estate planning, trust administration, and wealth transfer planning and charitable giving work, acting for high net worth clients and owners of closely held businesses. It can also provide family office services and advise on private aviation matters.” A client describes the Private Wealth practitioners as “very talented” and comments that they operate “at the high end” of the practice.
Yesterday’s announcement marks the second consecutive Chambers ranking for Sue and Eric, as well as for the Chambers High Net Worth ranking for the practice as a whole. Before publication of the High Net Worth Guide began recently, Larry and the practice were ranked in Chambers USA every year beginning in 2006.
As part of its research process, Chambers solicits feedback from firm clients. Comments received about Larry Richman in the current guide include:
“His work throughout the years has been very good, he is a thoughtful and gifted planner on a technical basis.” Another source said, “He is very dedicated to finding creative solutions - he treats our problems like his own.”
And about Sue Goldenberg:
“She is a great problem solver,” reported once source; another described her as an “all-around good, solid attorney” with a diverse practice.
Finally, about Eric Mann:
A source described him as follows: “Eric is a very good technical lawyer and a hard-working individual”; another said of him, “he pays attentions to the details and digs into the subject matter.”
