Brown, PC Founder, Lawrence Brown, believes that a team approach creates the highest likelihood of achieving the most favorable results possible for clients in offshore account compliance and OVDP cases. Since the inception of the 2009 Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program, offshore account compliance and offshore voluntary disclosure have been a very significant part of Brown, PC's tax law practice. The team of highly skilled and experienced tax lawyers, CPAs, and former IRS agents has represented clients from across the globe in offshore voluntary disclosures ranging from the fairly simple to some of the most complex. The Brown, PC team is particularly adept at representing clients in opt-outs from the OVDP civil penalty structure, and has settled a number of cases with no or very minimal monetary penalties.
Is OVDP Right for You?
A client's relationship with Brown, PC typically starts with a highly confidential initial consultation with Lawrence Brown and Catherine Rude. Mr. Brown has very successfully represented clients in some of the largest and most complex tax cases ever pursued by the IRS or the U.S. Department of Justice. He is one of the most sought-after and experienced tax attorneys in the United States. Ms. Rude has been deeply involved in offshore voluntary disclosure since shortly after the program first began, and she works tirelessly to stay abreast of very fluid and rapidly evolving IRS policies in this area. Her technical knowledge in the areas of offshore account compliance and foreign bank account disclosure is among the foremost in the country.
Mr. Brown and Ms. Rude understand how stressful these issues are for clients, and will take whatever time is necessary, in person, via video conference or by telephone to fully understand your unique situation. Once they understand your situation, they will carefully outline a strategy for you becoming (or remaining) compliant and relieving the stress you feel. Our team frequently represents high profile and ultra-high net worth individuals, and we maintain the strictest of confidentiality throughout the entire process.
