An International Private Client practice involves the application of multiple jurisdiction laws in order to safeguard the interests of wealthy global families and individuals. Typically involving detailed international trust and estate planning, creation of international family offices or verifying the correct application of the OECD Common Reporting Standard (CRS), a key aspect of an International Private Client practice is the effective coordination of various domestic professional advisors, financial institutions and fiduciary trust and company service providers.
