Notable practitioners

Jonathan Eisner advises on estate planning and administration and tax planning. He is chair of the firm's trusts and estates practice group. "He is superb, he has a deep and broad knowledge of the technical issues," says a client, adding: "He always knew where we were on the journey and when we needed to talk about the issues - he always knew what was coming. He has good values and has had good interactions with our family."

Sandra Gohn advises high net worth individuals on their tax and estate planning. "She is very efficient, very responsive and she comes across as exceedingly empathetic," a source says, adding: "She is phenomenal."

Thomas Grace advises on estate and tax planning. "He is superb," says an interviewee, adding: "He has got all the expertise you need in matters of law, taxes and wills and estate planning, but what I think is important in estate planning is he has a good understanding of family dynamics and family values. As our wealth has grown, it is very helpful to have someone who can bring guidance from having seen other people in the same situation. He is an exceedingly good person to work with. He has good values and has great respect for leading a family meeting the way a family wants - great bedside manner. He has exceedingly good quantitative skills as well."
