Q&A

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

International families come to us with complex problems. Here are three highlights from last year:
• Facilitating the establishment of several complex trust and related structures for families with cross border fact patterns. This enabled the preservation and ultimate transfer of wealth to family members in other jurisdictions.
• Establishing a family office administrative platform to support the effective operation and management of several real estate properties around the world and the entities that own them.
• Establishing a complex, consolidated reporting solution for a client with investments in several countries, several investment providers and multiple asset classes.
