Gravel & Shea is honored to be featured for the third year in a row in the Chambers & Partners High Net Worth Guide for Private Wealth Law.
We are also proud to congratulate Gravel & Shea Partner Jeanne Blackmore for her individual recognition as a notable practitioner.
The Chambers High Net Worth Guide is used by advisers to wealth individuals to provide international, objective guidance on a broad range of areas, from private wealth management to philanthropy. In particular, the Guide features in-depth editorial information about the leading lawyers and law firms for wealthy individuals and families.
According to the Guide, Gravel & Shea “enjoys a fine reputation in the Vermont trusts and estates community.” A local wealth professional calls the estate-planning department “very rigorous” in representing “a lot of high-end clients.”
At Gravel & Shea, Jeanne focuses her practice on tax and estate planning, probate and trust administration, and general business taxation. According to the Guide, she is a frequent target for advice in estate planning.
The High Net Worth Guide defines Private Wealth Law as including but not limited to: “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.”
