I have always admired Steve's skills as a lawyer and the way his law firm does business, so I'm delighted to be joining Cantor & Webb
Miami (PRWEB) July 29, 2008
Cantor & Webb P.A., an international tax and estate planning law firm, has added highly regarded international tax lawyer Joel Karp as Of Counsel in the firm's Miami office.
Joel has more than 40 years of experience as an international tax and estate planning attorney. A native of New York, he has been a member of New York Bar since 1964, member of the Florida Bar since 1971 and has practiced in Miami for more than three decades. He is also a member of the Bar of the United States Tax Court.
"I've known Joel for many years and have respected him as one of the few eminent experts in international tax and finance law, so we jumped at the opportunity to bring him on board our team," said Steven Cantor, managing partner of Cantor & Webb. "South Florida is a very unique legal market in that we have a substantial international finance market based right here in Miami. It's essential that these private enterprises and high net worth individuals receive the best legal counsel available for navigating the waters of international tax law and the addition of Joel to our firm significantly increases the level of expertise we can offer our clients."
"I have always admired Steve's skills as a lawyer and the way his law firm does business, so I'm delighted to be joining Cantor & Webb," said Karp. "This is an excellent fit as my practice dovetails quite nicely with the firm's core practice areas. My background in international banking and investment management will enable me to provide a level of specialized legal counsel to our clients that is not widely available in the South Florida legal marketplace."
According to Cantor, the firm also recently added a new associate, Giev Askari, to its Miami office. Askari is a graduate of the New York University School of Law's Taxation Program and is a former law clerk to the Probate Court in Palm Beach County.
