Wealth Management Lawyers

Overview

Wealth management lawyers provide a variety of legal services to wealth management (WM) firms—ranging from assistance with setting up trusts, to advice on regulatory compliance and tax and real estate issues, and representing their employer during litigation and dispute resolution. Some WM lawyers work for law firms that provide legal services to WM firms. Others are employed directly by high-net-worth individuals. The top attorneys at wealth management firms or banks with WM divisions are known as chief legal officers or general counsels.
