London, January 13, 2017 - International law firm Bryan Cave LLP has expanded its market-leading, London-based U.S. Private Client Team with the addition of David Adler, who joins as a Partner from McDermott Will & Emery.

David is a U.S. tax lawyer who advises international entities, individuals and intermediaries on planning that has a U.S. component. Along with core U.S. federal income, estate and gift tax advice, he provides a U.S. perspective on issues of wealth preservation and transfer, as well as on corporate governance and family succession for privately held businesses.

He is also a highly experienced adviser on issues arising under the U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and the OECD Common Reporting Standard.

David will work closely with Bryan Cave London Partner Dyke Arboneaux, a Chambers Global-ranked private client specialist. Over the past 28 years, Dyke has built a strong practice focused on trustees and international families who are exposed to multiple tax systems.

Dyke said: “As international tax regulations have become more complex, onerous and far-reaching – particularly following the implementation of FATCA – we have seen a huge increase in requests from high-net worth individuals, their advisers and their trustees, for detailed technical assistance. Often, apparently simple decisions can create unforeseen issues that, if not handled correctly, can prove difficult to resolve.”

“Our experience in advising on international matters and our exceptionally strong team in the States means that we are ideally placed to help clients navigate tax and estate planning issues effectively,” she added. “Indeed, ensuring we have the capacity to meet the growing demand has been challenging, so we are delighted that we’ve been able to attract a lawyer of David’s caliber to join our team.”

David added: “Bryan Cave’s Private Client Team in London, with its impressive reputation and its focus on helping those with U.S. interests, is a perfect fit for me. I have also been attracted by the collaborative and friendly culture at the firm. I am looking forward to working with Dyke and her team, as well as with the strong group of attorneys in the U.S., and I am extremely excited about the potential to deliver a great service to clients in an area that is increasingly important to their interests.”
