International Trusts and Estates


Day Pitney's international trust and estate planning attorneys are members of the Individual Clients department who focus on planning for U.S. citizens, non-U.S. citizens and multinational families with property and rights in more than one country.

  • Advising families on long-term governance and planning
  • Consulting regarding the creation and operation of family offices
