ALM Private Client Global Elite

Private Client Services Partners Laura Zwicker (Chair) and Thomas Giordano-Lascari have been selected to American Lawyer Media's (ALM) Private Client Global Elite, a list of the world’s elite lawyers advising ultra-high-net-worth clients.

Launched in 2017, the Private Client Global Elite serves as a highly respected global directory of the world’s top private client and trust​ and estates litigation talent, as well as rising stars within the industry.

Laura's practice focuses primarily on counseling ultra-high net worth individuals and their families in connection with domestic and international estate and tax planning issues and business succession planning; advising financial institutions about fiduciary and custodial issues; forming, advising, and dissolving non-profit organizations; and probate and post-death trust administration.

Thomas is highly regarded for his expertise in representing global families with footprints in multiple jurisdictions. He assists clients in structuring their worldwide assets to maximize family objectives and minimize income and transfer taxes. Thomas frequently aids clients with pre-immigration planning, foreign investments in the United States, U.S. residency planning and management, and expatriation planning. He frequently provides sought-after guidance on foreign trusts to foreign fiduciaries, U.S. beneficiaries, and grantors, addressing compliance obligations and tax consequences.

The Private Client Global Elite Directory was created with the awareness that referrals and recommendations are absolutely key to the private client sector. To know that someone is an excellent technical practitioner is not enough, it is integral for the maintenance of client relationships that the advisors you refer to your clients are good personality fits and masters of communication. As such, rather than a listing of private client advisors as chosen by a third party, these are the top 250 excellent individuals as chosen by their own peers within the private wealth industry.
