Kleinberg Kaplan counsels high net worth individuals, affluent families, and family offices on estate planning and wealth preservation utilizing advanced tax planning, structuring, and personal planning strategies. The firm’s litigation practice represents privately-held and public companies as well as high net worth individuals in a broad spectrum of corporate, business, and commercial litigation. Its lawyers have particular experience in hedge fund and financial services litigation, regulatory investigations and defense, and employment law matters.

“Our firm provides sophisticated legal counsel to clients across all our practice areas, and it is gratifying to be recognized by U.S. News as a Best Law Firm for Trusts and Estates and Commercial Litigation,” said Andy Chonoles, managing partner of Kleinberg Kaplan. “It is especially satisfying to know that client input and peer reviews were part of the section process.”
