Chambers High Net Worth recently released its annual rankings for 2020. Included among those recognized are 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 High Net Worth is one of these guides.
Chambers describes the Private Wealth team as having “a comprehensive private wealth practice, providing in-depth advice on estate planning and administration. It also offers family office services to high net worth clients.” A client describes the Private Wealth practitioners as “very fine” and “bright lawyers”; whereas another notes “There is a broad depth of knowledge in the firm.”
The recent announcement marks the third 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:
“He is a very, very good lawyer. He is very smart and does a good job trying to helping clients solve problems.”
And about Sue Goldenberg:
“She is a good, smart tax lawyer.”
Finally, about Eric Mann:
A source described him as follows: “he is excellent . . . He's just a great resource and is very knowledgeable in estate planning and tax”; another said of him, “He is outstanding and I think very highly of him. He is very thoughtful about high net worth client topics.”
