The firm provides a wide range of tax and legal services mainly for an international clientele.
We focus on all facets of tax including, but not limited to:
- International Tax;
- Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Programs;
- Tax Controversy;

- Corporate Reorganizations;
- Purchases of U.S. Real Estate; and
- Trust, Estate, and Gift Taxation.
One of the core practices of the firm involves tax planning for inbound investments in U.S. real property by international investors, either individuals or funds. For individuals, we can address ways to reduce capital gain tax rates upon the sale of real property, as well as U.S. estate tax exposure. For funds, we can address ways to mitigate withholding tax upon repatriation of proceeds to their home countries. We also assist clients on the legal aspects of the real estate acquisitions, including due diligence, contracts, and closing.
In addition to tax and legal services, we have developed a family office specialized in the real estate market, helping investors navigating through its intricacies, by introducing investors to pre-selected brokers, bankers, accountants, and property managers.
