International Estate Planning & Administration
United States citizens and domiciliaries with assets outside of the United States and foreign individuals with assets within the United States need to be attentive to the estate tax issues associated with the ownership of such assets. In addition, special estate planning is required for United States citizens with non-U.S. citizen spouses. We have extensive experience in advising our clients regarding international estate planning opportunities that are available to them, including structuring their estate, trusts, and gifting opportunities in order to reduce the client’s worldwide estate taxes.
The administration of estates with cross-border assets can provide challenges related to the disposition or transfer of those assets. With goals of both tax-effectiveness and efficiency, we provide our clients with assistance in administering United States estates with assets outside the U.S. or administering foreign estates with assets within the U.S..
