Karlin & Peebles has been named to the 2022 “Top Boutiques in California” list by the Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journal. This prestigious annual list highlights the premier specialty firms in California known for handling sophisticated and complex matters. Karlin & Peebles is one of only twenty firms throughout the state on the list for 2022.
The Daily Journal’s profile of the firm highlights partners Michael Karlin, Jane Peebles, Maria-Soledad Otero, Thomas Giordano-Lascari, and Cynthia Brittain, as well as the firm’s expertise in international and domestic tax and estate planning for individual clients and cross-border philanthropy.
"Our firm is quite unusual, we're a boutique firm and every lawyer here is what I call a large firm refugee," said partner Jane Peebles. "We've had wonderful training but now with a much smaller shop, we offer a much higher level of client service. We specialize in international planning -- not for big multinational corporations but for their owners."
Partner Michael Karlin, who founded the firm with Jane in 2007, described the firm’s focus on the future. Karlin and Peebles is now comprised of five total partners, two of counsel attorneys, and one associate. "Jane and I strongly believe in continuity and in building the future of the firm."
