Charles J. Durante and Gregory J. Weinig of Connolly Gallagher LLP, and the firm’s trusts and estates department generally, have been recognized as leading private wealth legal advisors by Chambers and Partners, an international law-firm rating agency.
The newly-published guide, Chambers HNW 2016, recognizing the world’s leading high net worth advisers, ranked Connolly Gallagher among the top Delaware firms in trusts and estates, citing its work on behalf of trustees, beneficiaries and other fiduciaries, and its reputation in the field. Connolly Gallagher was among just five Delaware firms to be recognized.
