“This firm is an instantly recognized name internationally and is synonymous with banking and finance in Argentina.”
Our Private Banking and Wealth Planning practice group offers legal assistance both to the private banking departments of financial institutions and to Argentine wealthy families and individuals. We also offer counsel to service providers in the fiduciary industry with their Argentine and foreign clients.
We handle the legal and regulatory advice needs of the private banking departments of a variety of foreign institutions, assisting them in the structuring of products for their Argentine clientele. Our regulatory advice encompasses the fields of banking, securities, foreign exchange and other regulations affecting their day-to-day operations.
The ample spectrum of Argentine regulations that have an impact on wealth planning (such as marital community property and forced heirship principles, local taxation and tax treaties, anti-money laundering rules, foreign investment and exchange regulations, etc.) have made the involvement of local counsel with a significant understanding of both the country’s legal environment and the common law principles that govern fiduciary structures, not only advisable but unavoidable. We regularly advise settlors, founders, heirs, beneficiaries, private banking departments of financial institutions, professional trustees, and legal and investment advisors in connection with the design and implementation of wealth management structures.
