The Global Legal Post today launches an online comparative jurisdictional legal guide to private client law featuring contributions from leading specialists from across the world.

The Law Over Borders Private Client guide is edited by Joshua Rubenstein, national chair of Katten’s private wealth department and a well-known and respected figure within the international private client community. 

This first edition provides a practical, up-to-date jurisdictional comparison in the areas of tax, estate and personal planning, administration of planning structures, and litigation.

Its launch is timely, given the dramatic impact of Covid-19 on the market. As Rubenstein notes in his introduction: ‘Post-pandemic, the private client landscape is changing faster than ever, as governments seek out ever greater revenue streams from our client base, and cash strapped governments and disappointed beneficiaries find new ways to attack planning structures.'

The easy-to-use digital format allows readers to quickly assess the laws of different jurisdictions by comparing contributing authors’ answers to a series of carefully framed questions.  

Contributing firms include: Conyers Dill & Pearman (Bermuda), Humberto Sanches e Associados (Brazil), Robinson Sheppard Shapiro (Canada), Mishcon de Reya (England and Wales), UGGC Avocats (France), Poellath (Germany), Ogier (Guernsey), Aronson Ronkin-Noor Eyal Law (Israel), Chiomenti (Italy), Tokyo Heritage Law Firm (Japan), RBC Wealth Management (Jersey), Gasser Partner Rechtsanwälte (Liechtenstein), Arendt & Medernach (Luxembourg), Turcan Connell (Scotland), Cuatrecasas (Spain), Bär & Karrer (Switzerland) and Katten (US).

“This guide offers both an overview of the tax and legal systems in each country represented, followed by a review of the most recent changes in the areas of estate and trust taxation, administration and litigation,” said Rubenstein. 

“And it will be a living, breathing work, as the hard copy will be updated for recent developments every other year, and the online copy will be updated as there are important new developments.  I feel privileged to have edited this unique publication.”

The guide is the fifth in the Law Over Border series, following the launches of guides to Artificial Intelligence, Luxury Law, Fashion Law and Anti-counterfeiting. Forthcoming guides include: ESG, Family Asset Protection, Global Trade, Arbitration and Commercial Litigation.
