Joshua S. Rubenstein, Private Wealth
In his widely respected practice, Joshua S. Rubenstein, national chair of the firm’s Private Wealth practice, brings a variety of important services under one roof for high-net-worth individuals. He offers integrated planning, administration and litigation counseling for individuals, their estates and their businesses, all of it designed to preserve wealth over generations. His advice stretches as far as his clients’ financial interests – locally, nationally and globally.
All-encompassing counsel for private clients
Josh is the rare trusts and estates attorney that does not focus on only planning, estate administration, or litigation. Instead, he integrates all three. The result, for clients, is deeper insight in each area that may affect them. Josh performs his planning and administration with a view to minimizing litigation risk; meanwhile, he litigates cases with a view towards discovering planning opportunities.
In any craft, making it “look easy” only happens with considerable experience and talent. Josh, who has been practicing in the field for more than 35 years, has a unique ability to create sophisticated solutions that are also elegant and uncomplicated. In the area of estate administration, which can bring intense feelings to the surface for family members, Josh and his clients also benefit from his emotional intelligence. Representing the executor of a multibillion-dollar estate who was being sued by siblings over their treatment in their parent’s will, Josh crafted a solution that satisfied all parties and restored family harmony. In that instance, and many others, Josh has kept what would have been a high-profile dispute out of the news.
Instead, it remained a private affair.
Recognized as a preeminent private wealth attorney
Inducted into the Estate Planning Hall of Fame by the National Association of Estate Planners & Councils, Josh has been named “Transatlantic Private Client Lawyer of the Year” by The American Lawyer, “International Lawyer of the Year” by Citywealth and “Trusts and Estates Trailblazer” by the National Law Journal. Additionally, he has ranked 40 out of 200 for Crain’s New York Business “Most Connected New Yorkers” and received numerous other accolades throughout his career.
