As a member of the New York Bar, he spent 2+ years with a medium size New York law firm as their sole tax associate, thereby gaining a broad background in many areas of tax planning.

Sam serves in an Of Counsel capacity to an international law firm (Paris, London, Brussels and Washington), and himself maintains an office in New York, which he visits occasionally to meet with clients. Sam writes in his various specialties, and has had articles published in the International Herald Tribune on the subjects of tax problems of the American expatriate, U.S. tax problems of nonresident aliens, and structuring offshore trusts. He also lectures on a regular basis to groups in Paris on these very same subjects. Sam is a problem solver and looks for the creative solution, but his experience and knowledge of the two tax and legal systems allows him to structure solutions for his clients that are well within the acceptable limits of the law.
