(New York, NY – September 23, 2021)—FisherBroyles, LLP is pleased to announce that Sharon Soloff, Partner and co-chair of the Private Client Services Practice Group, has been selected in Citywealth’s ‘Top 100 Private Client Lawyers’ ranking.

Sharon is a Partner in the Private Client Services, Trusts & Estates, and Tax practice groups at FisherBroyles in New York.

In this year’s ranking, Citywealth – the London-based, global publication dedicated to the needs of ultra-high-net-worth individuals and their advisors – has recognized the Private Client lawyers who provided outstanding service and went above and beyond for their clients during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Top 100 Private Client Lawyers is an international listing that includes lawyers from the UK, Switzerland, Singapore, and Greece among others; nine of whom are US attorneys and only three of whom practice in New York.

This achievement builds on Sharon’s impressive industry recognition over the last 18 months. In January 2020, she was named by Citywealth as one of the six Elite New York Wealth Management Professionals – only three of whom were lawyers; and in March 2020, she won the Silver Award in the New York Powerwomen – Law category in Citywealth’s Powerwomen awards.

At FisherBroyles, Sharon concentrates her practice on domestic and international gift, estate and tax planning for high-net-worth individuals and their families, including planning for owners of closely held businesses from inception through succession to future generations. She has a particular focus in the administration of large and complex estates and represents fiduciaries in estate and gift tax audits. Sharon also practices in the areas of art law and the law of charitable organizations.

Michael Pierson, Managing Partner of the Firm’s Global Corporate practice, said:

“We are delighted to see Sharon earn the recognition she deserves. Since joining in April 2019, Sharon has done a tremendous job at anchoring our growing team of Private Client attorneys and it comes as no surprise to see her named in this prestigious ranking.”

 

Sharon Soloff said:

“I am thrilled to have been named as one of the Top 100 Private Client Lawyers in 2021 by Citywealth. The unprecedented circumstances and complexities faced against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic reinforced the humanistic element and skills core of my role as a Private Client lawyer. The anticipated changes to the Federal estate and gift tax law will likewise require expert planning for each client’s unique needs. Since joining FisherBroyles, I have been able to develop my practice area and the Firm’s unique business model has afforded me the flexibility to continue building the strong relationships required to deal with these challenges. It is a great honor to be recognized in this way.”
