Estate Planning Practice Recognized by Chambers High Net Worth Guide
Chambers 2017 High Net Worth Guide has recognized Koley Jessen as a leading firm in Private Wealth Law in their recent rankings. In addition to be ranked as a firm, individual attorneys Kurt Tjaden and Brandon Hamm were recognized by the publication as leading attorneys in this area of law. Only 3 law firms and 5 individual attorneys in Nebraska were singled out as ranked by Chambers.
“We appreciate this recognition of our strength in this area of law,” says Mike Hupp, President of Koley Jessen. “Our team of attorneys who serve the private wealth market in the region are top-notch and provide our clients with an incredible level of service and sophistication.”
The publication quoted clients and professional advisors as saying:
“..they're very knowledgeable, timely, they have good people skills and their interaction with clients is strong. They have more depth and bench strength than any other firm in the estate planning area”
“I think that in Nebraska they would be recognized as the premier estate planning firm in our state.”
"They understand my goals, they know what I am talking about and they are able to provide flexible estate planning."
This recognition by Chambers is determined by interviews with those active in the market, mainly clients, competitors, other professional advisors with whom the firms work, as well as an assessment of recent work done. The Private Wealth Law service area includes work in charitable planning; wealth transfer; business succession planning; estate, gift and generation-skipping transfer tax planning (in the US); life and health insurance planning; the creation and administration of trusts and estates; asset transfer; the taking-public of closely-held businesses; and structuring outward and inward investment. Contentious matters are also included, such as trusts disputes, probate contests and contested wills.
