International Tax Law

  • Analyze your business structure to develop and implement tax strategies that will help you grow your business in a tax efficient manner.
  • Support your global expansion by counseling on international tax matters and ensuring that you’re above-board and compliant.
  • Support you in building generational wealth with strategic tax counsel specific to trusts and estate planning. While the federal government has increased the estate tax threshold to $11,200,000, many states have a much lower threshold, which can affect even a moderate estate. Based on the value of your estate, we can advise you on how to set up and fund marital trusts, and how to take advantage of the recent federal portability rules and annual gift exclusion amounts.
  • Counsel you on the major tax consequences often involved with immigration to the U.S. We provide international tax counseling and pre-immigration tax planning to help you avoid unnecessary financial penalties that could hinder the growth and expansion of your creative endeavors.
