Shawn P. Wolf
"He is very thoughtful and very deliberate."
- Chambers USA source
Sought out for his reputation as a cultivator of strong, long-term client relationships, Shawn counsels foreign and domestic high net worth individuals, families and closely-held companies wherever they need international and domestic tax, estate planning, and pre-immigration planning and strategies. Many of his clients are multi-generational in nature, spanning decades of private wealth planning needs. His Florida Bar Board Certification in Tax Law represents one of the most distinguished markers of expertise among practitioners in the private wealth planning field.
Among the areas of his practice for which he is most approached are matters involving the application of U.S. Federal income tax rules to taxpayers conducting business abroad, foreign nationals investing in the United States, and the formation of both foreign and domestic trusts. Shawn also assists clients in forming and operating domestic and offshore businesses, including corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies.
An active member of the Florida Bar Tax Section, he most recently served as Co-Director of the Long Range Planning Division in addition to previously serving as a Co-Director of the Federal Tax Division, Section Administration Division, Director-at-Large and Chair of the Outbound Tax Committee.
