Trusts have been used for lawful non-tax avoidance purposes by many individuals for different purposes. Among these are asset protection from divorce and creditors, tax minimization for foreign citizens with U.S. investments, and wealth transfers for foreign persons with U.S. beneficiaries. Speaker Gideon Rothschild of Moses & Singer will highlight some of the planning strategies available with such trusts.
