Carey Olsen Bermuda's Keith Robinson to speak at Legal Week's International Private Client Forum
Carey Olsen Bermuda partner Keith Robinson will be speaking on the impact of tax investigations and prosecutions on offshore trusts practice at Legal Week's International Private Client Forum in Italy.
The annual event, which takes place in Lake Como later this week, brings together leading private client lawyers and advisers from around the world to discuss the most pressing issues confronting high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals. This year's event features more than 40 speakers from 15 jurisdictions.
Mr Robinson, who is one of only two Bermuda lawyers to have a top ranking in the Chambers and Partners High Net Worth Guide, has a wide-ranging contentious and non-contentious trusts practice and regularly speaks internationally on Bermuda trust law and the jurisdiction's financial services offering.
His panel session, which is the first on day two of the conference, will consider how tax authorities are using exchange of information mechanisms to increase their leverage in tax investigations, and what this means for fiduciaries and private client advisers administering trust structures.
Mr Robinson said: "Legal Week's International Private Client Forum is a world-class event that continues to go from strength to strength and it is a privilege to have been put forward to speak by the Bermuda Business Development Agency so that I can explain the jurisdiction's position on such topical matters. Tax investigations in the private client space are not going away and it's important to consider the latest developments in best practice, what the increased risks are for advisers and, importantly, where the obligation to report lies."
