Miami, FL – Credited with having “considerable experience acting for international clients and on matters with complex cross-border issues”, Bilzin Sumberg’s Tax & Private Wealth Group has once again been recognized by Chambers High Net Worth as one of the top private wealth practices in Florida.

He is an extraordinary adviser and knowledgeable of law and great to have on your side. He is honest and sensible with a great heart."

Richard counsels ultra-high-net-worth individuals, closely held family businesses, non-resident aliens and multinational entities with complex tax planning and structuring and estate planning and probate. Richard has particular expertise in representing foreign persons with respect to their inbound investing, including U.S. income and estate tax planning.

Jennifer is a highly experienced tax attorney with extensive expertise in handling the tax and succession planning needs of high-net-worth clients for domestic and cross-border families. Her broad practice covers international and domestic tax and estate planning issues, pre-immigration tax planning, expatriation tax planning, international tax reporting and compliance, private trust company structuring, cross-border estate administration, tax structuring for real estate funds with foreign investors, and other tax structuring for investment into the United States.

Hal counsels some of the world's wealthiest individuals, family offices and trust companies with regard to their global tax and estate planning matters. He relies on approximately 25 years of experience representing clients from across the world, particularly the U.S., Latin America, Europe, the Caribbean, Canada, and the Middle East regarding global tax and estate planning matters, with a focus on maximizing global tax and estate planning efficiencies and savings.
