May 1, 2021 Coronavirus Update - We want to update you on our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our office is open on a limited basis, consistent with Los Angeles County and City regulations and guidelines and we are able to welcome clients and others so long as health protocols are strictly maintained (temperatures will be taken prior to entering our office, masks must be worn at all times, conference rooms will be disinfected before and after meetings, limited numbers may attend meeting to ensure that social distancing can be maintained).   In limited cases, our lawyers and staff continue to work remotely.  However, we remain 100% operational. Firm operations are uninterrupted, and we continue to provide our clients with excellent service delivered seamlessly. Our technology allows our attorneys and staff to work remotely and cooperatively on a fully efficient basis using firm systems that ensure confidentiality. You can reach us by email or through our regular phone numbers. Incoming faxes are delivered electronically. We also have implemented videoconferencing facilities through the widely available Zoom software and we can also work with other technologies such as Microsoft Teams. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance.
Our overriding priority is to protect the health and safety of our workforce, our clients, and our visitors. Having done everything that we can on this front, we will continue to assist clients, to stay in touch with our professional colleagues, and to work with our vendors. We are thinking about everyone affected and hope that you, your family and your colleagues stay healthy and safe.


We are planners, first and foremost. Drawing upon decades of experience, we give sound advice and implement it for our clientele. Our practice is concentrated on individuals and businesses with an international element.
