James Meyer of Harper Meyer Perez Hagen O’Connor Albert & Dribin LLP was invited to comment on the Panama Papers and the international financial services industry. Mr. Meyer asserts that “offshore tax planning remains a common, legitimate and important part of any cross-border transaction or business plan” and notes that “The press seems to have largely failed to mention the legitimate purposes of  offshore planning, including security, country and political risk, which is something many who are safely tucked away in the United States have a hard time conceptualizing.“ The commentary was featured in the Inter-American Dialogue’s Latin American Advisor publication on Wednesday, April 20th, 2016.
