Celebrating 75 Years of Serving Nevada’s Legal, Business, Government, and Civic Communities

McDonald Carano’s 5th Consecutive Year as the Only Nevada Law Firm Ranked Band 1 by Chambers in Private Wealth Law

McDonald Carano proudly announces the fifth consecutive year that Chambers awarded the firm its highest ranking of Band 1 in the category of Private Wealth Law. The prestigious recognition of McDonald Carano’s Trust & Estates Practice Group in the Chambers High Net Worth Guide also reflects the highly regarded expertise of attorneys Scott Swain and Robert Armstrong, which Chambers also individually awarded the Band 1 ranking in Private Wealth Law.

McDonald Carano is the only Band 1 ranked Private Wealth Law firm in Nevada and Scott and Robert are the only Band 1 ranked Private Wealth Law attorneys in Nevada.

Chambers is widely recognized as the preeminent ranking organization of the global legal profession. Chambers researchers identify and rank attorneys and practice groups according to the criteria most valued by clients: (1) legal knowledge, experience and ability, (2) diligence, commitment and effectiveness, and (3) commercial astuteness, professional conduct and client service.
