Miami, FL – Lauded for having the "ability to look into the future to prevent problems by proposing a good structure," Bilzin Sumberg was once again recognized by Chambers High Net Worth (HNW) as one of the top private wealth law firms in Florida. 

Three of the Firm's partners were also listed in the 2020 edition of Chambers HNW: Richard M. Goldstein, Chair of the Firm's Private Wealth and Tax Team; Hal J. Webb, Head of the Firm's International Private Client Wealth Team; and Jennifer Wioncek, Private Wealth and Tax Partner. 

A Chambers source noted that Richard is "a good lawyer who has a great demeanor." Market commentators admired Hal as "extremely professional and detail-oriented, and … went through things with a fine-toothed comb."  Another Chambers interviewee regarded Jennifer as "intelligent, forthright, clear, and very approachable." 

Richard focuses his practice on the representation of the ultra-affluent and their closely held businesses. He handles complex income, estate, and wealth preservation planning for both domestic and foreign persons, as well as tax planning and structuring of U.S. and foreign entities. Richard's practice also involves negotiating partnership and shareholder agreements, as well as advising on the ways to best monetize one's business. Additionally, Richard represents numerous foreign persons investing in the U.S.

Hal's practice focuses on the representation of some of the world's wealthiest individuals, as well as family offices and trust companies with regard to global tax and estate planning matters, with a focus on maximizing global tax efficiency and incorporating practical solutions. He also regularly advises clients in connection with pre-immigration tax and estate planning, structuring foreign investment in the U.S., and tax compliance and voluntary disclosure matters.

Jennifer is a fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel ("ACTEC"), a professional organization of approximately 2,600 lawyers who have demonstrated the highest level of integrity, commitment to the profession, competence, and experience as trust and estate counselors. She focuses her practice on advising high-net-worth individuals and family offices on both domestic and international trust and estate planning matters, multijurisdictional estate administration matters, and acquisition, maintenance, and sale of U.S. real estate by foreigners.
