TRANSACTIONAL PRACTICE

 
Estate Planning
The Firm’s estate planning practice advises individuals on estate planning vehicles in
order to preserve wealth and protect assets. This includes counseling clients on living trusts, wills, health care directives, powers of attorney; buy sell agreements, succession planning, and the myriad of other options available under current law. Our attorneys work closely with a client’s financial advisors to provide clients with the most well rounded estate plan that suits the client’s needs and desires.
 
Estate Planning, Probate and Trust Administration

It also is able to advise its clients in matters of trust administration and post mortem tax saving strategies.

Investor Visas
The Firm specializes in obtaining both E-2 and E-5 Visas

The investment must be substantial. It must be sufficient to ensure the successful operation of the enterprise. The percentage of investment for a low-cost business enterprise must be higher than the percentage of investment in a high-cost enterprise. The investment must be a real operating enterprise. Speculative or idle investment does not qualify. Uncommitted funds in a bank account or similar security are not considered an investment. The investment may not be marginal. It must generate significantly more income than just to provide
a living to the investor and family, or it must have a significant economic impact in the U.S. The investor must have control of the funds, and the investment must be at risk in the commercial sense. Loans secured with the assets of the investment enterprise are not allowed. The investor must be coming to the U.S. to develop and direct the enterprise. If the applicant is not the principal investor, he or she must be employed in a supervisory, executive, or highly specialized skill capacity. Ordinary skilled and unskilled workers do not qualify.
