Garvey Schubert Barer Attorney Akane R. Suzuki Featured on the Cover of Super Lawyers


Seattle, WA (PRWEB) June 27, 2014

Garvey Schubert Barer attorney Akane R. Suzuki is the featured cover story of Super Lawyers Magazine (Washington Edition 2014). The featured article is a profile covering Ms. Suzukis journey from Japan to her arrival in the United States as teenaged foreign exchange student. While living in the United States Ms. Suzuki felt destined to integrate her love of other cultures with her studies, which ultimately culminated in the practice of law.

Currently, Akane Suzuki focuses her law practice on a broad range of estate planning matters, from wills and powers of attorney to complex gifting strategies and business succession, charitable giving, and international estate planning. A large portion of Ms. Suzukis practice involves working with non-U.S. citizens living in the U.S., especially from Japan and Canada, as well as working with U.S. citizens and others living abroad.

Akane Suzuki said the most satisfying aspect of her career is Working with people and solving their problems. She said, Quite often clients will come to me with a problem they think is insolvable. Then, when I can help them find a solution, the outcome is very satisfying.

Her experience includes wealth transfer strategies involving trusts, such as generation skipping trusts, personal residence trusts, grantor retained annuity trusts, and life insurance trusts, as well as family limited liability companies. She also advises clients on probate and trust administration matters and preparation of gift and estate tax returns.

Ms. Suzuki receives a lot of feedback from her clients about the quality of her work. What I hear a lot, is that I make the complex process of estate planning less intimidating and simpler for my clients to understand. Whether my clients are facing complex tax issues, or cross border issues, I aim to distill the issues into simple, clear terms so that my clients can make better, more informed decisions.

She also added. My client relationships are long-term relationships. There is great continuity in my client relationships. I see when my client started a new business or if the business went public. I also get to share in their personal joy when they have a child or form a new partnership. More than anything, I enjoy seeing the growth and change in my clients lives.

Prior to her latest recognition by Super Lawyers*, Ms. Suzuki has been recognized by her peers and clients as an AV Peer Review Rated lawyer by Martindale-Hubbell, as a “Super Lawyer,” “Rising Star,” and one of “Top 50 Washington Women Super Lawyers” by Washington Law & Politics magazine, and as one of Seattle’s top “Forty Under 40″ professionals and community leaders by Puget Sound Business Journal. She is listed in The Best Lawyers In America in the area of Trusts and Estates, and in Martindale-Hubbell’s Bar Register of Preeminent Women Lawyers. Ms. Suzuki is also a fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel.

*Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.
