Liskow & Lewis "would be our go-to," says an interviewee. The team advises high net worth individuals and families, and closely held businesses, on the full range of trust and estate matters, including disputes. The group's non-contentious work includes assisting with business succession plans and representing clients with real estate and mineral interests.

"They have a lot of estate and tax planning experience and have the transactional side too," says a source, who continues: "They have a good breadth of experience."
