FANNY KARAMAN is a tax lawyer admitted both in France and the U.S. She concentrates her practice in the areas of U.S. and international taxation with a focus on cross-border issues between French-speaking countries and the U.S. Fanny regularly advises entities and individuals on the U.S. tax treatment of U.S. and European investments, trusts, corporate restructurings, and cross-border inheritances or gifts. Language proficiency in French and German and understanding of civil law mechanisms facilitates the major aspects of her practice and enables easy communication with non-U.S. clients.
