Our clients and their families are mobile. We regularly assist clients in planning for immigration or emigration. This may involve preliminary planning, pre-move restructuring of assets, negotiating security for departure tax, and working with advisors in other jurisdictions. This extensive experience with multiple jurisdictions allows us to provide practical advice to ensure a smooth transition.
Life Insurance is often an important part of a private client’s financial plan. Our lawyers are experts in the taxation of arrangements involving life insurance. Insurance can provide liquidity when most needed and offer innovative investment solutions for private company and multi-generational planning.
