Chambers and Partners Recognizes Sideman & Bancroft and its Attorneys as Leaders in Estate Planning and Family Law in 2022 High Net Worth Guide


Sideman & Bancroft is pleased to announce that Chambers and Partners has once again recognized the firm’s Estate Planning and Family Law practices as well as two of the firm’s attorneys in its prestigious High Net Worth (HNW) Guide, which ranks the top lawyers and law firms for international private wealth.

Sideman & Bancroft was ranked in the Private Wealth Law (Northern California) category and in Family/Matrimonial Law: High Net Worth (California). Additionally, Ellen I. Kahn and Hilary C. Pierce received rankings in Private Wealth Law (Northern California).

The annual Chambers HNW guide provides information on the top attorneys and law firms for wealthy families and individuals, as well as top accounting and tax firms, private banks, and wealth management firms. The recommendations are based on in-depth analysis provided by Chambers and Partners’ team of experienced researchers. Attorney rankings are based on independent private wealth researchers who perform hundreds of interviews with lawyers, family offices, accountancy professionals, tax advisers, bankers, investment managers and real estate agents in order to glean a comprehensive understanding of the private wealth sector.

Sideman & Bancroft’s Estate Planning group is composed of partner-level attorneys with a breadth of knowledge and experience gained through well over 100 years of combined law practice. The group was recognized in the 2022 HNW guide as “refreshingly collaborative… Whatever expertise was needed, it was available in the firm.”

Attorneys in the firm’s Family Law group , lead by Monica Mazzei,  take a comprehensive approach to the complex financial and emotional issues facing clients during what can be challenging transitions. The group was recognized in the 2022 HNW guide for its expertise in marital agreements, marriage dissolutions, and both family mediation and litigation matters. Sideman & Bancroft is a good, solid firm which has been around in San Francisco for a long time.”
