US and Canadian wealth and private client lawyers receive top rankings in Chambers High Net Worth guide

Global Press release - Recognition July 2021

For the sixth successive year, Norton Rose Fulbright’s wealth and private client teams in both Canada and the US received high rankings in the Chambers and Partners’ High Net Worth 2021 guide. Our Canadian team received a Band 1 ranking in Private Wealth Law for the fourth straight year, while our US team received a Band 2 ranking in the same category.

The Chambers High Net Worth guide focuses on the private wealth market. Recognized lawyers include US partner Celeste Lawton (Band 2) moving up a band level, joining her counterpart Joe Sleeth (Band 2) alongside Canadian partners Carmen Thériault, QC (Band 1), Kirsten Jenkins (Band 3), Laura West (Band 3) and Amanda Stacey (Band 3).

Results are based on independent research done by the publication. The Chambers High Net Worth guide is an internationally curated publication that ranks lawyers and law firms operating in the private wealth sector. Band 1 is the highest attainable ranking available collectively for a law firm.

In the US, both Sleeth and Lawton are members of our long-standing trusts and estates team. Sleeth’s practice focuses on wealth transfer planning, with an emphasis on the transfer of family or privately held businesses, while Lawton’s practice is focused on estate planning and estate administration for wealthy families and individuals.

In Canada, Thériault leads the wealth and private client team in Vancouver, acting for families who control or have a significant ownership interest in large, privately held companies or public companies. Jenkins’ practice focuses on advising individuals and families regarding estate planning, business succession and incapacity matters. West advises clients on similar matters and also charitable giving strategies, including through the use of foundations and other structures. Stacey provides advice on wills, trusts, powers of attorney, family business succession planning, and corporate re-organizations.
