"All of the lawyers there are extremely creative. They can interpret the law and apply it to different situations, and they do a great job of involving the client and keeping them informed."- Chambers USA
Often, tax considerations influence our clients' decision to invest in or acquire assets in another country, including the United States. Whether tax or non-tax considerations are the focal point of our clients' decision-making process, proper tax planning and counseling are typically critical to their long-term success.
Bilzin Sumberg’s tax lawyers are recognized in CityWealth Magazine, Chambers USA, and Chambers High Net Worth (HNW), the first of its kind international resource for family offices and professional wealth advisors. They work closely with entities and high-net worth individuals in creating the most tax-efficient structures for both outbound investments into non-U.S. countries and inbound investments into the United States. Our outbound planning involves the minimization of local country taxation, the deferral of income earned outside of the United States, foreign tax credit planning, and the efficient repatriation of profits to the United States. Our inbound structuring involves the reduction or elimination of U.S. income taxes on U.S.-source passive income (including gain from the sale of U.S. real estate) and on income connected with a U.S. trade or business, and minimizing the risk of a non-U.S. taxpayer from being engaged in a U.S. trade or business.
