Miami-based attorneys Cantor & Webb have strengthened their tax and estate planning team, expanding for a sixth consecutive year with the addition of new trusts and estates partner, Kathryn von Matthiessen.
Von Matthiessen, who relocated her practice from New York to join Cantor & Webb P.A., brings more than fifteen years of experience in the field of international estate planning, both inbound and outbound. Her practice will focus primarily on sophisticated personal and estate planning for high net worth individuals and the administration of complex estates and trusts, including advising international trust companies on reporting obligations concerning U.S. matters.
“I have joined Cantor & Webb P.A. because of their excellent reputation among clients and my peers. Driven by the complexity of US reporting obligations and the global reach of an IRS newly armed with FATCA and extensive information exchange powers, there is also a demand for international wealth structuring from Miami is greater than ever, and now extends far beyond traditional Latin markets", said Von Matthiessen.
This announcement complements a string of initiatives by the firm, which has expanded for a sixth consecutive year after seeing a substantial increase in client engagements.
“This major hire was driven by client demand for our services and helps cement our standing as experts in complex global wealth structuring. More broadly, it shows that Miami is a dynamic center which attracts heavyweight legal talent and is more than capable of competing with other US cities for international clients,” said Managing Partner, Steven Cantor.
