Private Interest Foundations and Estate Planning

Panamanian legislation offers a unique tool, attractive and ideal for estate planning and the protection of assets, the Private Interest Foundation. This structure has consolidated in recent years as a popular option among our foreign and domestic clients, since it permits the founder, in an orderly, intelligent and strategic manner, to make decisions about their assets, enabling them to arrange their estate in an efficient and structured way, though a private and confidential regulation, obtaining through it the security and peace of mind of having done things right.

Our team understands that each business is unique, therefore, we prepare contracts tailored to our client´s needs. Regardless of their nature, our objective consists in drafting and revising documentation to remove any room for interpretation. Hence, allowing our clients to focus on the thorough fulfilment of their objectives.
