Farella Braun + Martel's  private client team in California advises high net worth individuals, families and tax-exempt organisations. “They are an established firm and they have maintained a strong practice here in San Francisco,” says a local source.

“Farella is recognised as one of the top law firms in San Francisco, and their estate planning group is among the largest and most sophisticated in the Bay Area. They are not only outstanding estate planning attorneys, but they are also good people,” says a source, adding: “They always put their clients' interests first, and are a pleasure to work with to achieve the best outcomes possible for our mutual clients.”

Notable practitioners

Lara Gilman leads the firm's private client group and has deep experience advising high net worth individuals. "Lara is an absolute class act. She is professional, kind, critical, and aware. Her competence knows no bounds, and she is overwhelmingly pleasant to be around. Having Lara at our side is a constant source of comfort," enthuses a client. Another interviewee says Gilman's strength is "her vision and her ability to see the complexity that is coming and adapt to that. She has a breadth, depth and understanding of this space."
