International Estate Planning
Transatlantic Lawyers™, a trademark of the Law Office of Sylvie Richards, PLLC, is distinguished from other boutique estate law practices by its representation of international clients with assets in New York.
This U.S. based practice collaborates with foreign attorneys whose clients have assets in New York, or who have passed away with assets in New York. Since trusts are not recognized as legal entities in civil law countries, Transatlantic Lawyers™ will establish trusts for the assets and also draft separate wills that cover the New York assets only. The practice also handles the probate or administration of estates of expatriate United States citizens who pass away leaving assets in New York.
Transatlantic Lawyers™ has successfully served clients from Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, and Switzerland.
