In the recent Chambers High-Net-Worth (HNW) 2022 guide, Curtis’ Private Client Group was ranked as one of the leading practices in New York in the area of private wealth law. Curtis’ Private Client Group provides an extensive range of services to high net worth individuals and families, and in particular Curtis is noted by Chambers as being expert in advising on domestic and international tax, estate and trust structuring matters. It is also noted that the team is well known for working with financial institutions, non-profit organizations and owners of closely held businesses. Two partners from Curtis’ Private Client Group, Michael S. Schwartz and Robert W. Sheehan were also ranked.

Practice Co-Chair Robert Sheehan is noted for dealing with a full spectrum of private wealth matters. The guide quotes client feedback explaining that he stands out for his “in-depth experience when it comes to trust planning." A client also notes that he is "very easy to deal with, very cooperative and very practical," and that “his strength is that he has very good judgement, good technical skills, and is great at developing client relationships.”

Chambers also notes that Michael S. Schwartz has been sought after for representation by high net worth individuals, fiduciaries and family offices. Clients note that he is “a fantastic lawyer. He is very knowledgeable and well versed on the law. He is such a pleasure to work with and really goes above and beyond for his clients.” Another client explains that "He is just a pleasure to deal with. He is a go-to for any technical questions and he is always available at the end of a phone to talk things through."

The HNW guide is a Chambers & Partners publication that features lawyers and law firms servicing the private wealth management market, high-net-worth individuals and families internationally.
