(CHICAGO) Katten announced today that UK-based media and events company Citywealth recognized the firm's Private Wealth practice with the Magic Circle Award for Law Firm of the Year – USA.

"This coveted distinction further solidifies Katten's reputation as a leading law firm with one of the most well-respected Private Wealth practices nationally and internationally," said Joshua S. Rubenstein, national chair of Katten's Private Wealth department. "Accolades such as this highlight our team's deep bench of talented attorneys known for delivering exceptional service to ultra-high-net-worth clients around the world. Our attorneys offer industry-leading counsel tailored to matters ranging from personal, business, and estate planning to administration and litigation."

Citywealth's Magic Circle Awards, presented in London, recognize the achievements of wealth managers and advisors in the international private wealth industry, particularly those who invest money with charities, private families and foundations.

Over the past few years, Katten has consistently received top honors in the Law Firm of the Year – USA category, specifically in 2019, 2020, and 2022. In 2021, the firm was awarded the silver accolade. Additionally, Katten was previously honored in the International Law Firm of the Year category from 2019 to 2023. Rubenstein, Katten's Private Wealth practice leader, was recognized in 2021 as Lawyer of the Year.

The Magic Circle Awards are based on nominations demonstrating innovative client service, firm performance, leadership and vision, among other areas. The entries were evaluated by a judging panel of private wealth advisors and included online voting.

"Now, more than ever, UHNW clients need to rely on the safety the industry provides to protect assets and knowledge to navigate family issues whether divorce, ESG investing, tax or succession. With that, Citywealth is delighted to present the best of breed for 2024," said Karen Jones, founder, CEO and editor of Citywealth.

Katten's Private Wealth practice unites three essential components — planning, administration and litigation — on the local, national and international levels. Attorneys oversee the administration of estates, trusts and other structures, anticipate real-life problems and create workable solutions. They use sophisticated strategies to help entrepreneurs, corporate executives, investors, philanthropists, professionals and creative artists integrate personal and business goals.
