Top Recommended Tax & Trust Lawyers

‘If an HNW wants to invest/do business in the US, Basil is the go-to,’ one peer enthused when asked to recommend an international private client lawyer for this index.

When Spear’s Zooms the New York/London-based Zirinis, he’s delighted to speak. ‘You have the most sophisticated English law firms, I think – I work with all of them,’ he says. He’s been a partner at Sullivan & Cromwell since 1994.

Zirinis has extensive experience in trust and estate litigation. Highlights include US-Bahamas litigation representing Chicago’s Pritzker family, the America’s Cup trust litigation in New York, and ‘a multi-billion-dollar’ trust case in Europe and the Caribbean.
