feedback for the guide note that "Thompson Hine is a highly regarded law
firm with tremendous experience" and equipped with lawyers who are
"technically adept and innovative."

One source says Thompson Hine's reputation "is outstanding – they're
very well regarded for this type of work." "They do an excellent job,
they're present in the market, they're known, and they have a reputation
as being top-flight attorneys with broad skill sets."

Practice group leader Mark
is personally ranked in the top band in Ohio. He is noted for
his deep experience in advising wealthy clients on tax, business and
estate planning concerns. A source hailed him as "nothing short of
superb in the assistance, direction, counsel, advice, everything he gave
to the client. It was a very, very impressive piece of work." "He's a
very highly respected attorney," says another source, adding that "he's
a very good communicator, which is key when you're dealing with
entrepreneurs and ultra-high net worth families. Mark does a very good
job of taking something very complex and communicating it to clients in
a very succinct way." Conway is also described as "very collaborative"
and is praised for his "creative, sophisticated planning with
partnerships and family offices."

being "well regarded for representing wealthy clients and privately held
businesses in estate planning matters." A fellow Ohio practitioner
comments: "He is very knowledgeable, very good on complex tax issues. He
has the advantage of having had the CPA background and law background.
He can give some very tax-sensitive advice." Multiple sources highlight
Saccogna's "excellent relationships with his clients," as well as his
active presence on the conference circuit. "He's easy to work with,"
says an interviewee; "he's really good with clients, because he's got a
great personality that allows him to bond instantly with them. Clients
love him to death, he's very personable. He can simplify the technical
aspects of the planning for clients to understand. I consider him to be
one of the top estate planning attorneys in the Cleveland market. He's
extremely intelligent, but more importantly he's a good person and will
have the clients' best interests at heart."
