Legal Practice Offshore: Opportunity and Controversy
28 April 2017 - 30 April 2017
Join us for a unique seminar in the picturesque Bahamas for a joint initiative between the Private Clients, Litigation, Commercial Fraud and Tax Law Commissions. The topics will include:
- Offshore fraud investigations: the role of offshore services in the conduct of fraud and how the authorities have strived to address challenges by the use of corporate secrecy and opaque banking systems.
- Offshore tax shelters: exploring issues of legitimacy and confidentiality in the fall-out of the Panama Papers.
- Trusts under attack: benefi ciary requests for information and potential attacks in the wake of the Panama Papers.
- Offshore insolvency: access to information and securing creditors’ rights.
The Bahamas is a stable, developing archipelagic nation that is scattered across more than 100,000 square miles of the Atlantic Ocean. The Bahamian economy is based primarily on tourism, which accounts for an estimated 60% of the gross domestic product (GDP) and employs about half the Bahamian workforce. Financial services is another important economic sector, which places the Bahamas among the world’s leading financial centers, particularly in the capital city, Nassau.
Once in the Bahamas, visitors can traverse attractions by way of taxi, rental car, scooter or bus. Ferries and water taxis are also readily available to quickly transport guests from one delightful island to the next. This is combined with world-famous white sand beaches, warm turquoise waters and a wide range of land and water activities including snorkelling and scuba diving, fishing, championship golf and international culinary options.
It’s easy to understand why this is an attractive venue for this AIJA event!
