Partners Von Sanborn, Dina Kapur Sanna and Warren Whitaker have been named to Legal Week's 2019 Private Client "Global Elite," a list of the world's elite lawyers advising ultra high net worth clients. In addition, associate Rebecca Tunney was named to the "Ones to Watch" list of the world's rising stars in the private client legal profession.
Launched in 2017, the Private Client Global Elite serves as a global directory of the world's top private client and trust and estates litigation talent, as well as rising stars within the industry. Research and analysis to develop the list was conducted by global editorial teams from ALM Media, Legal Week's publisher. According to ALM Media, "Placement depends upon the amount of recommendations the individual receives from the global community, their international network (including the breadth of jurisdictions qualified in and working in) and the breadth of their ability, effectiveness and client-service." The methodology can be viewed here.
This year, Legal Week received more than 8,000 entries, resulting in recommendations of 294 Elite lawyers and 136 Ones to Watch. The directory, which can be viewed online, is used by the legal community looking for referrals, family offices and professional advisers.
