(CHICAGO) Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP announced today that the firm recently received the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards for International Law Firm of the Year – Large and Law Firm of the Year – USA.
The awards, issued by the UK financial magazine Citywealth, recognize the achievements of the international private wealth industry, including leading law firms, trust companies, family offices, tax advisors, investment managers and bankers.
"This recognition in two top categories underscores the talent and strength of our highly regarded Trusts and Estates attorneys under the leadership of Josh Rubenstein," said Katten Chairman Roger P. Furey. "Our lawyers in this space are widely known for their depth of knowledge and innovative strategies that effectively manage and preserve wealth."
The Citywealth Magic Circle Awards are based on nominations that illustrate services provided, case studies, in-depth knowledge, and leadership and vision, among other areas. The entries were evaluated by a judging panel and included online voting from charities, peers and private clients.
"These accolades highlight the complex work handled by Katten's dedicated team of Trusts and Estates attorneys," said Joshua S. Rubenstein, national head of the firm's Trusts and Estates practice and national chair of the Private Client Services group. "Our attorneys have a keen understanding of their clients' needs and goals and offer practical solutions to problems that clients may view as insoluble, helping them structure their business affairs in ways that benefit their personal lives."
Katten's Trusts and Estates practice is distinguished by its full spectrum of legal offerings to domestic and international clients: estate planning, trust and estate administration and fiduciary litigation services — a rarity offered by a single firm. The firm's attorneys counsel high-net-worth individuals, families, family offices, banks, trust companies, wealth management advisors and nonprofit entities and represent clients privately and before taxing and regulatory authorities.
Recently, Katten was also named Law Firm of the Year in Trusts & Estates Law by U.S. News – Best Lawyers® in the 2019 edition of "Best Law Firms."
