Taxation both Domestic and International

Mr. Lehman’s international practice spans the globe. This has resulted in Richard Lehman’s representation of foreign investors giving tax and practical advice in acquiring and selling a wide range of commercial businesses and other U.S. investment assets.

This includes the acquisition and sale of active businesses in the U.S. plus investments in all fields of:

  • Real estate including raw land, shopping centers, commercial office buildings, condominiums, residential apartments,  residential homes and the like.

In addition, Mr. Lehman has provided legal advice to Americans expatriating from the U.S. and have  extensively restructured many non-residents’ holdings in conjunction with their immigration to the United States.

A very unique set of tax laws applies to non-resident aliens and foreign corporations in both the income tax and estate tax areas that provides for both tax traps and successful tax planning opportunities.

Richard S. Lehman has also represented numerous Americans working and investing outside the United States taking full advantage of another unique set of tax laws.

Americans investing and working outside of the United States may benefit from excluding certain income earned outside of the U.S. or deferring the taxation of such income until a later point in time. At the same time there are tax traps for American investors investing internationally that must be avoided.

Mr. Lehman’s corporate office is located in South Florida a major center of international trade and investment.
