Private Client Global Elite Lawyer Thomas Giordano-Lascari Joins Greenberg Glusker as PartnerJune 1, 2023 – Press Release
LOS ANGELES, CA – June 1, 2023 – Leading Los Angeles law firm Greenberg Glusker LLP is pleased to announce that internationally recognized private client lawyer Thomas Giordano-Lascari has joined the firm as a partner in the firm’s Private Client Services Group. Thomas joins an established team of professionals working with high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth individuals, closely held multi-jurisdictional groups, and advisors across the globe. To his new role, Thomas brings nearly two decades of experience handling complex international income tax and estate planning matters.
"I am thrilled to join Greenberg Glusker’s private client team," Thomas commented. "I’ve known Laura Zwicker for a long time, and I’ve always admired her professionally. Being able to collaborate with such esteemed practitioners was certainly a motivating factor for me to make this move. Additionally, given my client profiles, a firm with multiple practice areas has become vital to meeting the demands of my ever-growing global practice. On the other hand, joining a local Los Angeles firm rather than a large multinational firm was important to me as I wanted to maintain my connection to the local market."
Highly regarded for his expertise in representing global families with footprints in multiple jurisdictions, Thomas assists clients in structuring their worldwide assets to maximize family objectives and minimize income and transfer taxes. Thomas frequently aids clients with pre-immigration planning, foreign investments in the United States, U.S. residency planning and management, and expatriation planning. He also provides sought-after guidance on foreign trusts to foreign fiduciaries, U.S. beneficiaries, and grantors, addressing compliance obligations and tax consequences.
“From its founding, Greenberg Glusker has been focused on serving the needs of private clients, and we remain focused on those needs,” shared the firm’s Managing Partner Bob Baradaran. “Our clients are increasingly global,” added Laura Zwicker, Chair of the Private Client Services Group. “Thomas’ experience working across multiple jurisdictions will help us continue to meet their needs,” Laura concludes.
Prior to joining Greenberg Glusker, Thomas was a partner at a boutique international trusts and estates firm in Los Angeles. He is Chair of the Los Angeles chapter of the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP) and is listed in the Private Client Global Elite Directory, a list of elite professionals around the world. He is currently on the executive committee of the Tax Section of the California Lawyers Association.
