Facing the Future
In today’s hectic world, it’s hard for South Florida professionals to keep up with all their daily activities: attending client meetings, answering emails, voice messages and texts, preparing documents, monitoring staffers’ assignments and more. On the personal side, it can be a challenge to carve out time for family, friends and personal activities, as well as that badly needed downtime on weekends.
But amid all that hustle and bustle, we all need to set aside some quiet time and think about our financial plans for the future. In that regard, there is lasting wisdom in the words of Benjamin Franklin: “In this world, nothing can be certain except death and taxes.”
That’s a fitting theme for South Florida Legal Guide’s 2014 Financial Edition, which looks at some of the most important long-term issues facing South Florida professionals and their clients. In this issue, we profile four of South Florida’s leading financial advisory and wealth management teams, and how they bring their expertise to bear on behalf of affluent individuals, couples and families.
Our roundtable in the Financial Edition focuses on trends in trust and estate planning and wealth management in our region’s unique market. Our panelists have plenty of insights into this field, which has changed significantly in the past few years.
Elsewhere in this issue, you can also read about major commercial and business transactions, and about interesting international litigation matters that have been handled recently by our Top Lawyers.
Our Financial Edition also includes articles contributed by leading professionals that relate to timely issues in law, forensics, finance and business, as well as in-depth Profiles of several of our top professionals.
As South Florida Legal Guide celebrates our 15th anniversary year with the publishing of the 2015 Edition this coming January, we would like to thank our readers, contributors and advertisers for your ongoing support.
