International Estate Planning: A Reference Guide, is a practical and authoritative resource for those seeking key information in the estate planning field. Practitioners and foreign advisers, [moved a phrase to later] whose clients have assets, children, parents or a spouse in other countries, or whose tax liabilities are difficult to define because of nationality, employment, or residence issues, and U.S. executives working in foreign countries will find straightforward, useful information in this guide. Equipped with a companion CD the appendix to the book contains copies of fillable tax forms and notices, relevant treaties and Hague conventions, as well as a list of organizations and resources to quickly help the reader obtain the answers they need.
International Estate Planning addresses questions such as:

“I just bought a vacation home in France. Should I do anything?” 
“My daughter married someone in Italy. Should I change my trust?" 
“Can an American save taxes by using off-shore trusts?”


These are not easy questions. Mistakes and pitfalls are pointed out throughout the book and ways to prevent them are explained. The author has spent more than 20 years in private client practice and has a firsthand appreciation of the need for authoritative information.

About the Author
Author Detail
Barbara R. Hauser, an internationally recognized lawyer (and former U.S. Supreme Court Clerk), now works as an independent family advisor. A former partner in two law firms (including Special Counsel at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP), a law school professor, and banking consultant, among other positions, she brings a wealth of experience to her clients, amassed over the course of over thirty years. She enjoys untangling complex multi-country issues that affect global families, and working with their advisors.
"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 (Author of Multistate and Multinational Estate Planning), Vanderbilt Law School
"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, Editor in Chief of Asset Protection Journal, of The Law Firm of Alexander A. Bove, Jr., PC (Boston)
"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."
- Frans Sonneveldt, Mazars Paardekooper Hoffman, The Netherlands and Professor at the University of Utrecht
