Chambers and Partners released its 2021 High Net Worth (HNW) Guide on July 22, and Cades Schutte’s Trusts & Estates team is proud to have once again been recognized as a Band 1 firm in the Private Wealth Law category.

In addition, Rhonda L. Griswold, Chair of the Trusts and Estates Department at Cades Schutte, was recognized again as Band 1 in this practice, and partners Summer G. Shelverton and Daniel C. Vermillion were newly ranked in the Up and Coming category.

Sources who spoke with Chambers commented that, “this law firm has to be one of the best in Hawai‘i for problem solving and good advice in personal and corporate matters” and “the various attorneys work well together and seem to communicate with each other seamlessly. They are professional, thorough in their work, prepared for meetings, and pretty quick to respond to requests.”

“We are happy to be recognized as a top law firm in Private Wealth Law once again by Chambers,” said Rhonda. “I am especially pleased to see that two of my teammates were newly acknowledged this year. I believe that this year’s results show the bench strength of our team, and we look forward to continuing to serve our clients in relation to their needs in trusts and estates law.”
