MCLEAN, Va. (PRWEB) April 23, 2018
Greenberg Traurig, LLP Tax Shareholder Lucy S. Lee will participate in an upcoming Strafford live webinar, “Cross-Border Estate Planning After Tax Reform: New Opportunities and Obligations,” April 25, from 1-2:30pm ET. According to the website, the webinar discussion will provide estate planning counsel with a critical early look at the international implications of the new U.S. tax reform law on clients with cross-border assets and tax residence.
Lee and two other speakers will offer guidance on examining and restructuring estate and trust documents for U.S. taxpayers to ensure that current wealth transfer plans conform to the provisions of the new law. The webinar will also address offshore business structures to determine whether a U.S. taxpayer with offshore holdings may achieve income tax benefits by restructuring those entities.
Lee focuses her practice on international tax and estate planning for high-net-worth and global individuals and families. She represents clients on sophisticated matters, including structuring of inbound and outbound businesses and investments, wealth management structures, estate and succession planning (including domestic and foreign trusts), structuring of family offices, pre-immigration tax and expatriation planning, and U.S. tax compliance in the cross-border context. Lee also represents taxpayers in audits and controversies with the Internal Revenue Service and with foreign tax authorities under Mutual Agreement Procedures.
About Greenberg Traurig's Tax Practice
To stay competitive in today's global marketplace, international companies must seek out greater efficiency in their tax planning and compliance, including coordinating tax decisions from country to country. For U.S. operations, an environment of increased scrutiny – including passage of more restrictive legislation and a spike in audit activity at every level – is quickly becoming the norm, likewise spurring a need for greater self-evaluation and for more frequent representation in controversies and litigation with tax authorities. Greenberg Traurig’s multidisciplinary tax team works closely with clients to address these and other tax planning needs, as well as tax controversies and litigation issues.
