One wealth manager noted that the Private Wealth Law attorneys of Young Conaway have a "clear understanding of things from a corporate trustee's perspective and from the client's perspective...they know how to navigate the Delaware Court of Chancery and its recent changes. We are able to trust the expertise of their attorneys and we know when we call upon them we will have someone who gets it." Clients also praised Young Conaway's ability to work effectively on matters where Delaware law interacts with the trusts provisions of other states.

Clients told Chambers HNW researchers that Partner Vincent C. Thomas has "a wealth of experience and knowledge of the Delaware courts system, particularly as it relates to trusts and estate matters." Others find Mr. Thomas to be "very candid in presenting all the options" and they appreciate his willingness to involve clients in the decision-making process. "He's very responsive and knowledgeable, and he keeps up with changes in the law so as to advise us properly using the latest techniques that might affect his advice." Another client concludes: "Vince is a top attorney and his combination of knowledge, ease of conversation and personability make him a great person to use."

Partner Richard J.A. Popper was identified by Chambers HNW researchers as a "highly regarded trusts and tax expert."  Legal peers value his trust and estates knowledge and extensive understanding of the Delaware tax code.  An attorney interviewed by Chambers HNW noted that "Richard is excellent with technicalities, there is nobody who knows the code better than he does. He is very, very intelligent."
