January 27, 2010
Maslon attorneys Susan Link and Mark Baumann are recognized as "Twin Cities' 2010 FIVE STAR Wealth Managers" in the January 2010 issue of Twin Cities Business. Those selected for the elite list scored the highest in client satisfaction and represent less than 6 percent of the wealth managers in the Twin Cities area. Link was recognized for her Estate Planning services and Baumann was selected in the area of Taxation.
The 2010 list is based on an intensive survey process of over 35,000 high-net-worth residents in the Twin Cities area and subscribers of Minneapolis St. Paul Magazine and Twin Cities Business, as well as a survey of financial service industry leaders. Recipients of the survey were asked to evaluate only wealth managers they knew based on the following nine criteria: customer service, integrity, knowledge/expertise, communication, value for fee charged, meeting of financial objectives, post-sale service, quality of recommendations and overall satisfaction. Before finalizing, candidates were reviewed by a blue-ribbon panel comprised of individuals from the financial services industry. View full details on the selection process.
