We provide strategic and creative solutions, but offer pragmatic advice

Our philosophy remains centered around the same principles that guided the firm’s founding: A desire to be nimble, strategic, creative and client-centric. Most importantly, a desire to be different.
Entrusted by some of the world's wealthiest families, I discreetly advise clients on a broad array of tax, trust and estate planning matters spanning both the United States and abroad. My global practice includes working with ultra-high-net-worth individuals, and their private businesses, family offices and fiduciaries, to design and implement strategies geared toward tax optimization and fulfillment of various non-tax goals. Such strategies traverse traditional estate and wealth transfer planning, including in the context of international, multigenerational families; pre-immigration and expatriation planning; and structuring of foreign investments into the United States.
