Miller Johnson receives highest ranking in annual Chambers High Net Worth Guide

The annual Chambers High Net Worth (HNW) Guide was recently released and Miller Johnson’s estate planning group received the highest ranking (Band 1 of 5). Key individual attorneys were also recognized: Robert Brower at Band 1; Christopher Edgar and Lauretta Murphy, both at Band 2; and Raj Malviya as the only “Up and Coming” Michigan attorney.

Chambers 2017 HNW Guide covers private wealth management work and related specialties in key jurisdictions around the world, featuring in-depth editorial about the leading lawyers and law firms for wealthy individuals and families.

Murphy, who chairs the estate planning practice group, commented, “Our group works with private clients—individuals as well as multi-generational families—to preserve their assets, protect their legacies and promote their philanthropic values. We value the trust and respect they place with us. We’re honoured to be included in the HNW Guide for the work we do on behalf of our clients.”

The Chambers 2017 HNW Guide published this:  The trusts and estates team at Miller Jonson advises on wealth and charitable planning for clients... “Miller Johnson is a great firm,” says an interviewee. “They have a pretty good mix of attorneys in their practice who do a variety of work, from complex domestic planning to international planning and litigation as well...”

Miller Johnson lawyers featured:

—Robert Brower is a litigation lawyer whose practice centers around fiduciary and estate disputes. One peer says: “Bob’s a great guy – he’s difficult to be on the other side from because he’s a very good attorney...”

—Christopher Edgar is recognized as “a very, very good estate planner... One commenter says, “He’s a fine lawyer who knows his stuff.”

—Lauretta Murphy has a broad-based estate planning practice, covering tax and business succession planning in addition to elder law and disability planning. One peer say,“[S]he is the primary person in west Michigan for elder law.”

—Raj Malviya, who handles estate planning, including for those with business interests in multiple states,  “is an up-and-coming attorney on the scene in Grand Rapids,” says a peer. “He has a focus on international tax planning, and he’s active in the State Bar. He’s a really bright guy and a good attorney.”
