Pillsbury has again been recognized as one of the leading law firms operating in the international private wealth market in the 2019 edition of Chambers High Net Worth. This latest inclusion marks a third consecutive year in which Chambers has lauded the firm for its strong practice in this highly specialized area of the law.
Chambers HNW recognized Pillsbury as one of the leading law firms in the world for private aircraft-related legal counsel this year, with Hong Kong finance partner Paul Jebely earning a Band 1 ranking globally in the category. Market commentators hailed the firm’s practice in this area for having a “very strong global footprint,” being “professional and prompt,” trying to “find solutions to problems” and providing an “outstanding” level of service. Of Jebely, in particular, sources raved, “he is one of the best lawyers I have ever met in my life, in terms of professionalism and knowledge in the field and patience explaining everything."
San Francisco-based Pillsbury partner Kim Schoknecht also received significant praise from Chambers in the Northern California Private Wealth Law section of the 2019 High Net Worth guide. “He's very strategic, which I appreciate—he's all about solving problems—and he's super-available," enthused one market insider. Others described Schoknecht as “top-notch” and “a really good listener.”
