McGrath North is pleased to announce that their Tax, Trusts and Estates practice group earned a top ranking (Band 1) in the 2018 Chambers High Net Worth (HNW) guide. McGrath North is one of two Nebraska firms to receive the Band 1 honor for private wealth law.
McGrath North advises individuals on tax planning, business succession matters, the administration of trusts and estates, and the preparation of wills and trusts. In the HNW guide, Chambers notes that McGrath North is regarded as “one of the top law firms” in Nebraska. The firm has a substantial tax, trusts and estates group that works with wealthy clients from across the Midwest.
Three of McGrath North partners were also singled out for recognition in the HNW guide. Clients and peers praised these individual attorneys during interviews with Chambers researchers:
- Jonathan Grob, a co-practice group leader, assists clients with tax planning, estate planning and business succession matters, as well as offering advice on charitable giving and is ranked in Band 2. An interviewee states this: “He’s very sound technically in all kinds of aspects of tax law, including the wealth transfer type,” adding that “he is easy to work with, able to answer questions.”
- James Wegner is ranked in Band 2 and is a co-practice group leader. He advises clients on tax planning and business succession issues, and advises on non-profit organizations and charities law, as well. A market insider says this: “With him I know clients are in excellent hands – as an estate planner he does an excellent job.”
- Jeffrey Pirruccello is ranked in Band 1 and was recognized for his extensive experience advising wealthy clients on estate and tax planning matters. He also represents clients under tax investigations. “He’s a respected and long-standing presence,” says a peer, adding that “he has a very sound grasp of how transfer planning works, he has lots of experience of those things.”
“We are very proud that these three attorneys are held in such high regard by their clients and others in the industry” said Roger Wells, president of McGrath North. “Each are valued leaders in our firm and trusted advisors to our clients.”
