Butler Snow is pleased to announce the firm was named runner-up for Law Firm of the Year – USA in Citywealth Magazine’s 2019 Magic Circle Awards. The awards ceremony was held May 16 in London.
“We are honored to receive this prestigious recognition by one of the top financial publications in Europe,” said Donald Clark, Jr. chairman of Butler Snow. “This ranking illustrates the success of our wealth transfer planning team and the firm’s commitment to the highest levels of client service.”
The Magic Circle Awards – the premier awards for the private client financial sector – are held annually to select the best advisors, managers and firms in the global private client financial industry. Following an in-depth nomination and submission process each spring, entries are shortlisted by a judging panel featuring 10 global industry experts. Online voting opens once the finalists are announced.
Butler Snow’s wealth transfer planning attorneys develop and implement well-designed, sophisticated plans to achieve an orderly transfer to their clients’ wealth, taking into consideration their personal philosophy, family goals, businesses and philanthropies. The final plan focuses on asset protection for future generations while minimizing transfer taxes. The process covers more than the traditional preparation of last wills and testaments, and often involves innovative techniques to resolve problems.
Butler Snow’s team advises high-net-worth individuals, privately owned businesses and financial services firms, including family offices and private trust companies. Its attorneys provide advice in a broad range of areas, including asset protection, business succession planning, gifting, tax planning, charitable planning, family offices, long-term care planning and family legacy planning.
Citywealth’s Magic Circle Awards bring together more than 400 of the industry’s global elite representing more than 140 organizations including leading law firms, trust companies, family offices, tax advisors, investment managers and bankers in the wealth sector to recognize the achievements of the industry during the past year.
