International Tax Planning

Our understanding of U.S. tax law includes sophisticated counsel on the U.S. tax consequences impacting assets owned by non-U.S. citizens. The lawyers in our Tax and Private Wealth groups advise entrepreneurs, tax-exempt organizations, fiduciaries and high net worth families on vehicles to minimize their international assets from U.S. income, gift and estate taxes.

We take an integrated approach, blending extensive knowledge of tax law and work with tax treaties, to provide unique capabilities for handling trust distributions, the tax intricacies of foreign situs property, and related international tax planning issues. Our counsel includes new developments in the law of foreign grantor and grantor trusts, making the United States a more attractive destination.

Attesting to our experience in the arena of international tax planning, recent accolades for Private Wealth group chair Lawrence Richman include Who’s Who Legal: The International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers and “International Estate Planning Lawyer of the Year in Illinois” by the Corporate INTL Global Awards.
