"This is a superb work that will serve as a handy reference for both experts and novices confronted with multinational estate planning problems. The excellent organization and clearly written text assure quick and reliable answers to critical issues. The appendix is especially helpful, putting at the reader's fingertips relevant treaties and tax forms. A terrific job."
-Professor Jeffrey Schoenblum, Vanderbilt Law School, Author of Multistate and Multinational Estate Planning.
"The not-so-secret wish of most lawyers is to be able to become at least conversant in new or complicated areas of the law by reading a few pages (instead of many volumes) that are written by an expert and are clear. Barbara Hauser's book offers just that. It is concise yet remarkably comprehensive in scope, briefly explaining virtually every area of the law of international estate planning that the non-expert practitioner needs to know. I recommend it highly."
- Alexander Bove, Attorney and Solicitor, Bove & Langa (Boston), and the Author of Trust Protectors - A Practice Manual With Forms (Juris Publishing, Inc.).
"I only wish this book had been written sooner. With its help I might have understood more quickly how to reconcile the concepts of civil law and United States law. I would strongly recommend it to anyone involved in estate and tax planning."
- Jean-Marc Tirard, of Tirard Naudin (Paris), author and Founder of STEP France.
"In the area of estate planning there are hardly any publications which deal with these complicated matters in a practical manner. International Estate Planning. A Reference Guide is an exception to the rule. It explains all the difficult concepts in estate planning in an easily understandable way without simplifying matters. This is an indispensable guide for estate planners dealing with international issues."
