Private Client Services

Our passion for helping high-net-worth and high-profile individuals succeed in their financial and professional lives is at the core of Marks Paneth’s Private Client Services offerings. We understand that to achieve your objectives, you need much more than an accountant – you need an advisor who knows you.

By understanding the people behind the numbers, our experienced High-Net-Worth and Family Office specialists are better able to develop plans, strategies and recommendations that address each client’s specific situation and maximize their greatest areas of opportunity.

This personal approach is augmented by our deep technical expertise, regulatory knowledge, value-add consulting services and decades of experience in tax planning, wealth preservation and transfer, planned giving and family office services.
