Justine Markovitz is “very experienced and well known for trust matters and private client”, with sources nationwide highlighting her for her expertise.
Justine is a partner and joint CEO of Withers' private client and tax division. She has been based in Switzerland since 2005 when she relocated to open Withers' Geneva office and head up the firm's Swiss operations.
Advising private individuals, families, trustees and financial institutions in relation to international tax, trust structuring, succession and estate planning, her clients are truly international and as a result she deals with complex cross border matters. This advice also extends to compliance, regulatory, voluntary disclosure and international tax investigations.
In working with families, she provides succession planning advice and advises on governance issues. She works with those families to create and restructure wealth-holding structures and other legal solutions to implement their long-term succession plans for both their personal and business interests.
Through her long established relationships in Switzerland with clients, local firms and other advisers, she is able to provide integrated international legal advice from a local perspective.
