U.S.-based Firm to Provide Tax Law and Corporate Services From Singapore 

Hone Maxwell LLP, a leading international tax and business law firm, is proud to announce the upcoming opening of its new office in Singapore, slated for January 2024. This strategic expansion marks a significant milestone in the firm’s commitment to providing exceptional legal counsel and tax guidance to businesses and individuals in Asia and beyond. 

With a deep-rooted connection to the vibrant cultures, diversity and dynamic business communities of Asia, HMLLP is well-positioned to serve a diverse clientele seeking international tax counsel and business solutions.  For nearly a decade, HMLLP has had a strong presence in the region, especially in mainland China, Hong Kong and Bangkok, in addition to Singapore, and this new venture will serve as a big first step to better serving these clients and colleagues from a more convenient and strategic location. 

Managing Partner Josh Maxwell, a recognized authority on international tax issues, expressed his excitement about the expansion, stating, “We are thrilled to bring our unique blend of international tax and business law to the heart of Southeast Asia. Our longstanding ties to the region have paved the way for this exciting venture.” 

HMLLP’s Singapore office will be led by Associate Jared Garfield, who brings a fresh perspective and advanced international tax law foundation to the team. Garfield’s innovative approach and creative ideas will play a vital role in connecting with professionals in Asia. With a Master of Laws in taxation, Garfield brings credibility and knowledge to individuals and businesses with ties to Asian countries and the U.S. 

“I’m excited to try new things, work with people who have different life experiences and be immersed in new cultures,” Garfield said. “Being trusted with this endeavor is a true privilege and I’m eager to collaborate with our clients and partners across Asia.” 

The firm’s global capabilities are further enhanced by Partner Carolina Juarez, who focuses on U.S. business and corporate law and will provide invaluable legal guidance to Asian investors and businesses looking to expand into North America. Additionally, Senior Associate Aaron Li, a San Diego-based international tax attorney fluent in Mandarin, will facilitate seamless communications regarding complex international tax laws with Asia-based partners and clients. 

HMLLP’s comprehensive range of services includes assisting dual-status taxpayers who have U.S. citizenship or residency with U.S. international tax regulation and reporting compliance. The attorneys provide guidance to individuals and families in Asia with assets and beneficiaries in the U.S. and one-stop legal oversight and tax counsel for investors and businesses seeking international expansion.  HMLLP also assists with planning and consulting for business operations and transactions both entering the U.S. and expanding abroad.  

The opening of the Singapore office represents a significant step forward for HMLLP as the boutique law firm continues to expand its global presence and build strong partnerships with entities in Asia and beyond. The firm’s dedication to understanding its clients’ needs and providing skilled legal and tax guidance positions them as a trusted advisor in the international business and legal landscape.
