European Shipping Company - Cross-Border Leasing


Working with attorneys and other advisors in several jurisdictions, Mr. Cope co-developed an ownership structure for a foreign company operating vessels in U.S. territorial waters. The business arrangement allowed the foreign companies involved to claim U.S. treaty benefits thereby minimizing their U.S. income tax. This complex arrangement involved cross-border leases and financing transaction in multiple jurisdictions.
