Cadwalader Attorneys Contribute to Private Trust Companies: A Handbook for Advisers

September 03, 2020

Cadwalader’s Dorothy Mehta, Sasha Grinberg and Osvaldo Garcia have contributed a chapter to the recently released Private Trust Companies: A Handbook for Advisers. Published by Globe Law and Business, the handbook is a comprehensive resource for lawyers, accountants, family office executives and others who advise ultra-wealthy families on private trust companies.

Mehta, Grinberg and Garcia co-authored the chapter on “U.S. Tax and Regulatory Considerations,” which covers the potential U.S. tax and regulatory treatment of private trust companies. While high net worth families and practitioners have used private trust companies for many years in the international estate planning realm, the use of these structures is increasing in the U.S., as driven by a host of regulatory and geopolitical factors. The authors provide insight into various related tax and regulatory considerations for both practitioners and clients when creating such entities.

Mehta concentrates her practice on fund formation, with a client base that includes U.S. and non-U.S. investment advisers, wealth management platforms and family offices. She has extensive experience in the structuring, formation and operation (domestically and on a cross-border basis) of a variety of alternative investments products. She also advises clients on registration and related compliance requirements.

Grinberg represents individuals and fiduciaries with respect to complex cross-border planning, trust and estate administration, charitable giving, trust and estate disputes, and family law issues.

Garcia’s practice focuses on international and domestic estate planning, estate administration, trust administration, tax controversies and matters of international regulatory compliance.
