Awards & Rankings
In its 2023 High Net Worth guide, Chambers and Partners has named Pillsbury as one of the leading international law firms advising the ultra-wealthy. This year, the firm secured a national U.S. ranking in the Family Offices & Funds Structuring category, and partners Jennifer Jordan McCall and Michael Kosnitzky were identified as outstanding practitioners.
Feedback on Pillsbury’s Family Offices & Funds Structuring offering—which moved up a band in the Chambers High Net Worth rankings this year—cited the team’s “significant presence in Florida, Northern California and New York,” as well as its “deep expertise in areas such as income, estate and gift tax, as well as family succession issues” as some of its most notable strengths. Sources also raved about the firm’s ability to handle “exceptionally sophisticated corporate transactions, family estate law, [and] fund formation type work.”
Kosnitzky earned rankings in both the nationwide Family Offices and Funds Structuring and Florida Private Wealth Law categories, where he is recognized for his deep experience helping clients and family offices navigate the full range of formation and restructuring issues, including tax-related matters. Clients affirm that he is “laser-focused” on these areas, and note he is “tenacious” and “manages expectations brilliantly.”
Meanwhile, Jordan McCall is again hailed as one of the leading Private Wealth practitioners in California this year. In support of her latest ranking, clients praised her unwavering dedication to service, describing her as “adept, bright” and someone who “serves with integrity and heart.”
