About The Instructor

Sought out for his reputation as a cultivator of strong, long-term client relationships, Shawn counsels foreign and domestic high net worth individuals, families and closely-held companies wherever they need international and domestic tax, estate planning, and pre-immigration and expatriation planning and strategies. Many of his clients are multi-generational in nature, spanning decades of private wealth planning needs. His Florida Bar Board Certification in Tax Law represents one of the most distinguished markers of expertise among practitioners in the private wealth planning field. 

Among the areas of his practice for which he is most approached are matters involving the application of U.S. Federal income tax rules to U.S. taxpayers conducting business abroad or moving abroad, foreign nationals investing in or moving to the United States, and the utilization of foreign and domestic trusts in strategies related to such matters. For 25 years, Shawn has also assisted hundreds of clients in coming into compliance with U.S. tax filing requirements, particularly international clients with complex situations involving multiple jurisdictions, in addition to counseling them on the minimization of applicable penalties. Finally, Shawn also assists clients in forming and operating domestic and offshore businesses, including corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies. 

An active member of the Florida Bar Tax Section, he currently serves as its Director-at-Large and previously served as Co-Director of the Long Range Planning Division, Co-Director of the Federal Tax Division, Section Administration Division, and Chair of the Outbound Tax Committee. His many years of leadership in the Tax Section recently earned him nomination as its Chair for 2023-2024.
