[ Publisher’s NOTE ]

Equality of Treatment For All Americans By the time this edition is in your hands it will be almost 55 years to the date (January 31, 1963) since President John F. Kennedy spoke at the 50th annual meeting of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). After receiving an award from the organization, President Kennedy praised the work of the ADL, stating: “Your tireless pursuit of equality of treatment for all Americans has made a lasting and substantial contribution to our democracy.” And later in his talk, he concluded: “That is what this organization has stood for 50 years. That is what this country has stood for 200 years, and that is what this country will continue to stand for.” The words “equality of treatment for all Americans” should resonate today more than ever. After all, President Kennedy was describing one of the basic principles of our nation — that all men, women and children deserve to be treated equally regardless of race, religion, ethnic background, gender, age, sexual orientation or place of residence. But, clearly the fundamental principles of tolerance, fairness and equality are being sorely tested in today’s hyper-partisan political climate. Major decisions being made should be given due consideration, rather than a knee-jerk reaction in hopes of currying favor with a certain political base. Too many Democrats and Republicans are unwilling to reach “across the aisle” to the other side. Rather than compromise and find win-win solutions to the complex problems facing the nation, they propose radical solutions where one side can claim victory and call the other faction a loser. Unfortunately, we are now living in a polarized country where people seem to be guided more by anger and hate toward others than by goodwill toward their neighbors. In this climate, it seems we must turn more and more to our attorneys and our courts to find a middle path that protects our basic “inalienable” rights. Now, more than ever, we need litigators and jurists committed to the rule of law, and professionals throughout our community to work tirelessly to protect our personal rights and combat injustices on a local, state and national level. We need to shape a better future for our children and grandchildren — and for ourselves as well. Jacob Safdeye Publisher

Joe Zumpano

WAR ON TERROR

MOVES INTO THE COURTROOM


TODAY, THE WAR ON terrorism is being fought in the courtroom, as well as on the battlefield, says Joe Zumpano, Founder and Managing Shareholder of Zumpano Patricios & Winker. As one of the early lawyers in this area, Zumpano’s list of notable cases has helped shape aspects of this nascent field. “It’s important to remember the courage of victims of terrorism that choose to fight their battles in the courtroom,” he said. “Their path to redress for their losses is often hard fought in our courts.” South Florida Legal Guide interviewed Zumpano recently about his latest victory in a career of anti-terrorism cases. Here is a summary of that conversation.

Tell us about your recent case? It dates back to 1999 in Colombia. Three narco-terrorism organizations – Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), National Liberation Army (ELN), and North Valley Cartel (NDVC) – were seeking to establish a direct route to move cocaine from the Magdalena River Valley to South Florida. A key property at the crossroads of that route belonged to Carlos Caballero Cormane, a former United Nations Ambassador and a staunch opponent of Colombia’s drug trafficking. On February 13, 1999, a car carrying the Ambassador was seized by ELN guerillas. Guerilla forces held Ambassador Caballero captive for 184 days. After they received a large ransom payment, they killed him and forced his son Antonio Caballero to flee to the U.S. Fifteen years later, I tried Caballero v. FARC, et. al, on behalf of Antonio Caballero. My law partners Leon Patricios and Bryan

Cleveland assisted with the trial. We established that the highprofile assassination of Ambassador Caballero would not have been carried out by any one of the co-conspirators without the knowledge of, consultations with, and the approval and acquiescence of each of the other co-conspirators. We established that the defendants were working together as a Colombian Narco-Terrorist Association (CNTA) with direct ties to Mexico’s drug cartels. Based on the activities of the defendants, the complaint concluded that the defendants’ “pattern of racketeering activity amounts to continued criminal activity in Florida, Colombia and the United States.” We received a final judgment of $191,433,485.56 against the conspirators and two years later, after an appeal, were able to recover nearly $1 million in frozen assets for our client. To date, this is the only known case to recover assets held by a “straw man” designated under the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act.

What were conditions like in Colombia at the time? In Colombia, the Marxist rebel forces (FARC and ELN) were working together with right-wing paramilitary forces (AUC) to support the flow of drugs from their country to Mexico to the United States. While these right-wing and left-wing groups would kill each other on the battlefield by day, they frequently moved drugs for the Norte del Valle Cartel along established routes often by night. For more than a decade, the Colombian drug lords would engage the FARC and ELN for armored caravan transportation of the drugs in Colombia. They would also use the AUC to move narcotics. The FARC and AUC would transport the drugs to Mexico along a Pacific coast route. The cocaine transported to Mexico was then distributed to various Mexican cartels. The CNTA was pursuing a more direct northern route to move drugs into the United States through South Florida. The Ambassador’s property sat within the cross roads of the various caminos real that would be used by the guerillas to transport the narcotics along the northern route. How did you “connect the dots” between the three countries? We established that the Mexican cartels were operating as “agents and instrumentalities” of the Colombian narco-terrorist organizations in this case. We also found that the Mexican cartels would often place their drug-related assets in the name of “straw men” that would then attempt to launder their money in the United States. Even though some of the funds were taken across the border to Texas, some of the laundered money ended up in Florida banks. What did the trial court determine? On October 30 and 31, 2014, Circuit Court Judge Lisa S. Walsh held the trial on the case. The final judgment addressed many issues of legal interest. It also cited to guidance from the Office of Foreign Asset Control that “blocked” property under the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act included property in which a blocked person or entity has a 50% of greater interest (even if the property is in the name of a “straw man”). This particular aspect of the final judgment would prove crucial to recovery in the case. We were able to establish that the Mexican cartel agent and instrumentality of the defendants was the actual owner of the account despite their use of a “straw man” name over the account. What about the flow of funds in the case? On March 5, 2012, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) seized an armored car in Pharr, Texas. They uncovered $2 million separated into seven sealed bags. Shortly afterwards, a trained canine from the Pharr Police Department alerted officers that the currency had recently been in close or actual proximity to a significant amount of a controlled substance. Federal authorities determined that the $2 million came from Prodira Casa de Cambio S.A. de C.V., which had a U.S. address in Pharr, and was in fact a money laundering operation

for a Mexican drug cartel. The U.S. government then went to court in a seizure and forfeiture action (United States of America vs. $2,000,000.00 in Currency). Because Prodira was a “straw man” for a Mexican cartel with longstanding ties to the Colombian conspirators, we established that the assets were owned by a terrorist party designated under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act. How did you track down the funds? We decided to use our intuition and take a shot in the dark. I issued subpoenas to the largest banks in Florida. We felt that if drugs were being moved to South Florida, the money trail would be nearby. On February 9, 2015, one of the subpoenas hit its mark. Regions Bank responded to the subpoena by identifying a “blocked account” in the name of “Prodira Casa SA DE CV.” Since the trial court in Caballero had found that Prodira Casa de Cambio S.A. de C.V., was in fact an agent and instrumentality of the FARC, we launched a garnishment action against the funds held by Regions Bank. While the garnishment was fiercely litigated, Circuit Court Judge Monica Gordo issued a final turnover judgment ordering money in the account be turned over to Caballero. That ruling was appealed, and on December 21, 2016, the Third District Court of Appeal affirmed the trial court’s decision. Since then Regions Bank has turned over the funds in the blocked account. What are the implications of this case? It’s the first case we know of where assets were recovered from a Mexican cartel for a victim of terrorism. The case is also the first case that we know of where the assets in the name of a “straw man” specially designated narcotics kingpin were actually recovered because they truly belonged to a “blocked” entity under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act. The case also demonstrates the personal courage of a victim of these criminal organizations, and his attorneys, to stand up for their rights in court. Our history is replete with those not born here who gave their lives so that we may build a nation. In this case, a man died for standing up against those who would tear it down. What other anti-terrorist matters have you handled? In addition to the Caballero case, I had had the honor of leading a number of international litigation efforts. In the historic case of Weininger v. Castro, we collected almost $24 million in a lawsuit against Fidel Castro, Raul Castro, and the Army of Cuba. In another case against Cuba, we represented a former Cuban political prisoner who was purposefully infected with the hepatitis C virus – and argued that the viral replication process constituted a biological terror attack within the United States. One of my most hard fought cases took over 10 years. It resulted in the piercing of a Bahamian trust, and in the turnover of approximately $4 million in assets. That case sent a strong message against those seeking to hide away assets in that country.

FIGHTING AGAINST INSURANCE FRAUD 14

|

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

INSURANCE FRAUD comes in many shapes and sizes. A driver might submit a damage claim for a car purchased just a few days ago. An unethical healthcare provider might inflate a workers’ compensation claim planning to split the extra revenue with an injured employee. Or a commercial property owner might submit a property and casualty claim for structural damage that actually occurred years ago.


[ Distinguished ATTORNEYS ] “South Florida is the nation’s capital for insurance fraud,” said Maria Elena Abate, a shareholder at Colodny Fass in Sunrise who has been fighting against fraud for more than two decades. “Sometimes the insured is complicit in the crime, but other times it’s done without the policyholder’s knowledge. Many people don’t realize that organized crime is extensively involved in fraudulent claims.” Since joining law firm Colodny Fass in 1992, Abate has built a stellar reputation in handling complex commercial litigation, including insurance, bad faith and class action defense, as well as employment law and civil rights issues. She co-manages the firm’s Litigation Division, and is a member of the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance, a national organization committed to furthering high standards in client defense. Abate regularly lectures and teaches other professionals about fraudulent claims, such as a recent talk to the Latin American Association of Insurance Agents. This year she was nominated as “Insurance Defense Attorney of the Year” by the Florida Insurance Fraud Education Committee for her multilevel fraud-fighting and prevention strategies. Through the years, Abate has learned there are some red flags for insurance fraud. For instance, an attorney or a public adjuster might report a homeowner’s claim rather than the insured, months after the alleged loss and after repairs are done. Another warning sign is the convenient “loss” of a cellphone with photos showing the prior condition of a home or vehicle or a recent change of numbers so an insured has no phone records of calls to medical providers. “These types of situations need to be investigated carefully for possible fraud,” Abate said, adding that insurers must report suspected criminal actions to the State Department of Insurance Fraud. “As attorneys for the insurers, we don’t get involved in the prosecution of these criminals,” she said. “However, we do provide state investigators whatever non-privileged information they request for their case.” LAUNCHING A LEGAL CAREER Born in New York, Abate came to South Florida with her family as a teenager in 1976. “I loved the culture and the weather here, and it’s been my home ever since,” she said. She enrolled at the University of Miami planning to become a computer programmer like her

father, but she soon realized she was a “people person” and majored in psychology with a minor in marketing. “I knew at that point I didn’t want to go to graduate school in psychology, so I started looking into law school,” she said. “That turned out to be a great career decision. I find the law fascinating, because it touches every aspect of our lives.” While still in school she began clerking at the Broward County Courthouse, where she was exposed to a wide range of cases. “As a litigator, I enjoy the variety of matters that cross my desk, from class actions to construction, employment and liability defense. There is always something new to learn.” After earning her juris doctor in 1992, Abate was scheduled to join Colodny Fass on Monday, August 24, just after Hurricane Andrew ripped through South Florida, leaving much of the region damaged and without power. “My first actual day on the job was the Thursday after Andrew,” she said. “We met in shorts and t-shirts at the Howard Johnson off I-95 at the Golden Glades because it was the only building we could find with a meeting room that had power.” Abate began handling civil rights and commercial litigation cases, but found herself gravitating toward insurance – a key practice area for the firm. Her colleagues advise clients on insurance regulatory matters and transactions, including start-up companies. Working with the firm’s managing partner Mike Colodny, as outside general counsel, Abate was instrumental in helping Citizens Property Insurance Corporation continue to pay policyholders’ claims in the wake of several major hurricanes. She also counseled Citizens’ claims handling and managed litigation of all its wind- and waterrelated cases. She has also represented major employers and state agencies in employment-related cases involving federal and state labor laws, non-compete agreements, discrimination complaints, constitutional violations, health care issues, whistleblower claims, and breach of contract and unpaid wage claims. “I have always tried to do what’s best for my clients, while helping as many people as possible, Abate said. “I also believe in balancing work with your personal life.” She is married and has three children, ages 30, 21 and 17. “I am passionate about my family, as well as my clients,” she added. “I believe that

a drive to do the right thing is crucial for a successful professional career.” Abate also feels strongly about the importance of diversity within the legal and insurance industries, and supports initiatives to hire more women and minorities. “We have a rich pool of multicultural talent in South Florida,” she said. “Firms with effective diversity programs can draw from a wider range of experiences to deliver better service to their clients.” A COMMUNITY LEADER Abate has long been active in professional organizations. She has served on the Florida Bar’s Executive Committee and was a past chair of the Public Interest Law Section (PILS) as well as the chair of the PILS Legal Needs of Children committee. In 2005, Abate became a founding board member for the Women’s Breast and Heart Initiative, a community outreach program educating women in underserved communities who find it difficult to visit a doctor or clinic. “We go to neighborhoods that have been identified as having a high incidence of breast cancer and heart disease and spend our Saturdays knocking on doors,” she said. “We talk to the women, educate them about these conditions and set up screenings for women who qualify. Then we bring in a mobile van to provide convenient access to mammograms, blood tests, and other screening tools.” Through partnerships with area hospitals and clinics, the tri-county initiative has grown to include cholesterol and glucose screening, as well as healthy eating and nutritional guides. The evidence-based health program and its founder, Andrea Ivory, have been featured as a “CNN Hero.” Both Abate’s firm and her family have been very supportive of the program and her two sons have been visiting homes with her for the past 11 years. To date, the program’s volunteers have knocked on 105,000 doors in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade Counties. “Maria serves on our board, helping to guide our mission to reach underserved women,” said Ivory, executive director, Women’s Breast and Heart Initiative. “But she rolls up her sleeves and helps us at every step of the way. She is a brilliant professional with a big heart who is truly a role model for our community.” SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

HELPING EMPLOYERS NAVIGATE LABOR AND EMPLOYMENT ISSUES 16

|

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

BAD EMPLOYEES can throw a workplace into disarray, tarnish an organization’s reputation or cause substantial financial damage. A complaint alleging discrimination, sexual harassment or unjustified termination is a serious matter for any company. “My clients have my mobile phone on speed dial,” said Susan N. Eisenberg, a partner with Cozen O’Connor in Miami with more than 25 years of experience representing


[ Distinguished ATTORNEYS ] employers. “While I stay in close touch to advise them on this evolving area of the law, there are always questions about the best way to handle specific situations.” For instance, how should employers react when someone posts negative information on social media? Should there be a policy regarding political conversations on the job? And what steps can employers take to guard against sexual harassment or violence in the workplace? As a board-certified labor and employment attorney, Eisenberg has been asked all those questions – and more. “Let’s say you are concerned about theft in the workplace,” she said. “So, you put up video cameras and post a sign letting employees know their actions will be observed. But you’re not allowed to put a camera in the bathroom, even if that would help identify the thief.” Sexual harassment is another timely issue for South Florida employers, following a wave of claims this year against highprofile celebrities, politicians and CEOs. “As an employer, you need to have a sexual harassment policy, train your people and investigate these allegations,” she said. “Now is a good time to resend your anti-harassment policy to everyone with a reminder about how to report an incident. Counseling employers on employment issues is the other major aspect of Eisenberg’s practice. She reviews employment documents, advises on organization policies, helps set up training programs and conducts workplace audits. She also enjoys the due diligence aspect of merger and acquisition (M&A) assignments. “Susan is a rock star labor attorney,” said Lisa Gefen Sicilian, chief administrative officer, Kaplan Higher & Professional Education in Fort Lauderdale. “She is smart, perceptive, business-oriented, funny and a real partner. She’s a good listener who takes the time to understand an issue before reacting. She also treats each case individually, rather than applying the same approach. You couldn’t pick a better lawyer.” Eisenberg is also an experienced litigator, handling cases related to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which covers minimum wage, overtime pay, record keeping and youth employment rules. She is one of the authors of the premiere treatise on the topic, titled “The Fair Labor Standards Act.” She also litigates cases involving equal employment, discrimination, retaliation

and other types of claims under federal and state labor laws. “I handle a great many discrimination cases, which are always fact intensive,” she said. “For me, a trial is like a Broadway show, where you have to tell a compelling story, present the salient points and help the jury to understand your client’s side.” FROM PHARMACY TO THE LAW Growing up in the Detroit area, Eisenberg was interested in a medical career. She earned a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy from the University of Michigan and worked as a pharmacist in both hospital and retail settings. But she didn’t enjoy that role and talked with a job counselor about other possibilities. “He suggested law school, and urged me to take the LSAT,” she said. “I did well and decided to enroll at the University of Miami School of Law, since most of my extended family was living here.” At the University of Miami, Eisenberg was a member of the law review and president of the Moot Court Board before earning her juris doctor. She then joined Akerman planning to focus on medical malpractice cases, but soon found herself immersed in employment litigation and other cases. She was with Akerman for more than 20 years, before joining Cozen O’Connor in 2015, Eisenberg has been a Fellow of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers since 2007, and regularly speaks on employment issues for the American Bar Association, Practicing Law Institute, and American Conference Institute. She is a founding member and is past president of the Wage and Hour Defense Institute, and former president of the Academy of Florida Management Attorneys. In addition to her litigation and counseling practice, she is an arbitrator with the American Arbitration Association and a Certified Mediator. When not at the office, courtroom or counseling clients, Eisenberg enjoys time with her family, as well as reading, travel and exercise. Her husband Steven Eisenberg is an attorney with Eisenberg Lehman PLLC in Coral Gables. They have four children, twins Alex and Zach, Hailey, and Arielle, who is an attorney in Atlanta. ADVISING EMPLOYERS ON TIMELY ISSUES Understanding federal and state employment laws, creating appropriate policies, enforcing them consistently and documenting individual

decisions are crucial steps for today’s employers, according to Eisenberg. “I have never met an employer who intentionally violated the labor laws, but it’s easy to make a costly mistake if you aren’t careful.” Many of the errors Eisenberg sees are related to overtime requirements. For instance, a performance bonus or a shift differential payment could raise an individual’s overtime pay rate. A manager who requires employees to be on the job 30 minutes before they can punch in could be violating the FLSA’s overtime rules, she added. “Don’t rely on a payroll-processing company to manage those types of wageand-hour issues, she said. “Those firms work with the information you turn in.” Another common mistake is classifying a salaried positions as exempt from FLSA overtime requirements. “You also have to look at the employee’s duties and responsibilities, which can change from time to time. For instance, a supervisor might wind up in a nonexempt role if all her subordinates are laid off.” Thanks to advances in technology, many employers are offering flexible schedules and work-at-home options for their employees. But you should think about the legal issues before implementing such a program, Eisenberg said. “It’s hard to monitor an employee working at home, so you should implement some type of system to track the hours spent on the job,” she said. “In general, you should offer this option to good performers that you can trust – not to an employee who comes in late every day or has been subject to disciplinary action.” Working from home might also require employers to comply with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), such as paying for special desks and chairs, bigger monitors or audio devices. Another issue is workers compensation: If an employee trips and falls while working at home, does insurance coverage kick in? Finally, Eisenberg advises taking a fair and consistent approach to documenting a problem employee’s actions and performance on the job. “But once you have made the decision to terminate do it quickly. It may not be easy, but it’s usually the best approach to keep your organization moving forward.” SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

HELPING CLIENTS FIND IMMIGRATION SOLUTIONS 18

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

AFTER A TWENTY-YEAR legal battle last October, Charlie Pierre became a U.S. resident last October — thanks to the pro bono efforts of Miami immigration attorney Tammy Fox-Isicoff. “She was a life-saver for me,” said Pierre, who emigrated from Haiti decades ago and was given Temporary Protected Status (TPS) by U.S. immigration authorities. “Getting my ‘green card’ meant so much to me and my family,” added Pierre who lives in Fort Pierce. “It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor – she won’t give up on you.”


[ Distinguished ATTORNEYS ] For more than 30 years, Fox-Isicoff has been fighting to help corporate executives, professionals and other foreign nationals like Pierre obtain legal permission to enter and stay in the United States. It’s a task made more difficult these days because of the Trump administration’s focus on reducing the number of legal entrants, eliminating TPS protections for some residents and deporting others who entered the U.S. illegally as children or adults. “I wish Donald Trump could meet some of my clients,” said Fox-Isicoff, a partner at Rifkin & Fox-Isicoff in Miami. “These are good people who have families and jobs here, paying their taxes and making contributions to their communities. For some of them, deportation could be a death penalty.” A VARIED IMMIGRATION PRACTICE Board-certified in immigration and nationality law, Fox-Isicoff’s practice largely focuses on business and investor-related visas, including intra-company transfers for foreign executives who need permission to work here on a temporary basis. “It’s much better to talk with an immigration lawyer before taking steps to bring in a foreign executive or professional,” she said. “Planning ahead can make the process go more smoothly and avoid potential problems.” Fox-Isicoff also helps foreign investors and business owners planning to start new ventures in our country through the EB-5 direct and regional center visa program. Fox-Isicoff is a national expert on direct EB-5 investments. “I believe there is great value in facilitating direct foreign investments, and speak on this topic all over the world,” she said. Much of immigration law involves informing and educating immigration adjudication officers about foreign individuals who can make contributions to the nation, Fox-Isicoff said. “We explain why an international executive who is important to the company needs to be transferred to the U.S. or why a person seeking a labor certification has skills that can’t easily be replicated here.” On a typical day, Fox-Isicoff might have appointments with 10 clients, each with his or her own story to tell. “I have helped a diamond broker from Europe, an asylum seeker from the Ukraine, military experts, top athletes and renowned

medical professionals,” she said. “I also have an opportunity to help human beings fleeing desperate political and economic circumstances and whistle-blowers who have exposed government corruption in their homeland.” She also enjoys helping her clients make the move to the United States. “Imagine moving to a different country where you don’t know anyone,” she said. “You would need to find a home, get your children into schools, and find a family doctor. Making those kinds of referrals is one of the roles I play as part of my practice.” In her practice, Fox-Isicoff works closely with partner Larry Rifkin, and their associates and staff members. “Our team has been together for many years, and I rely on them for support,” she said. “We would be nothing without our wonderful staff.” But Fox-Isicoff says she still writes every application letter and labor certification request herself. “I like to meet our clients, learn what they do, and then prepare their information for the authorities,” she said. “That’s what makes my job interesting.” Fox-Isicoff also enjoys the collegiality of practicing immigration law in South Florida. “The other lawyers in my field are my friends,” she said. “After all, we have a common goal – helping our clients overcome the barriers to immigration. I put my briefs online to educate other attorneys, and send out email blasts from time to time. We realize that one bad decision in the courts can affect all of our clients.” For example, Fox-Isicoff represented Cuban-born Roberto Garces before the 11th U.S. Court of Appeals on a pro bono basis. Garces had come to Miami in 1980 and was caught up in a drug bust on Miami Beach three years later. “Although he was never convicted of drug trafficking or any other crime, immigration authorities tried to deport him in 2006,” she said. “At that point, he was the guardian of his five grandchildren, who would have been left without support. I couldn’t let that removal order stand, and ultimately the appellate court agreed to let him stay.” A DESCENDANT OF IMMIGRANTS Fox-Isicoff is proud of being the descendant of immigrants who came from eastern Europe in the early 1900s. She grew up in Youngstown, Ohio, where her father, Eugene Fox, was an attorney and her mother Tamara

was a homemaker. “I was in an accelerated high school program and my parents had a place in Miami, so it made sense to go to college here.” After gaining a bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of Miami, FoxIsicoff continued with law school in the early 1980s. Even before earning her juris doctor, she was introduced to immigration law through a summer internship with Federal District Court Judge Eugene Spellman. “I spent time at the Krome Immigration Detention Centerfor refugees, and that helped shape my career path,” she said. After graduating in 1983 at the age of 25, Fox-Isicoff joined the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service as a trial attorney, and soon became a special assistant U.S. attorney. Meanwhile, she married another attorney and started a family. Today, her husband Eric Isicoff is a commercial litigator and a founding partner of Isicoff Ragatz. Daughter Jamie is a divorce attorney with Leinoff & Lemos, P.A. , son Jordan recently joined Hall, Lamb, Hall & Leto, P.A., and daughter Jennifer is a social media strategist in New York City. AN ADVOCATE FOR CHANGE Since entering private practice in 1985, FoxIsicoff has been active in The Florida Bar, the American Immigration Lawyers’ Association (AILAA), and Catholic Charities Legal Services. She has lectured on immigration law and appeared as a consultant on NBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, CNBC, FOX and MSNBC. She has received three AILA Presidential Awards for advocacy on behalf of immigrants. Today, she is a dedicated advocate for changing the nation’s immigration policies and practices. “Treating all illegal immigrants in the same way does nothing to improve the nation’s security,” she said. A foreign child who came to the U.S. with his family and has been protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Dreamer) program or a working mom with three children is very different from a terrorist trying to sneak into the country, she said. “There are many immigration judges who understand the vital importance of looking at each individual’s circumstances, but their hands are tied by the draconian federal policies. That’s something we must change.” SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

Patricia E. Lowry

DEFENDING MAJOR PRODUCT LIABILITY CASES 20

|

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

WHETHER playing a tennis match or defending a client in the courtroom, Patricia E. Lowry is a formidable competitor. As a partner with Squire Patton Boggs (US) LLP in West Palm Beach, she has handled national product liability cases involving pelvic mesh, hip implants, antibiotics, anticoagulate medication, bone screws and other pharmaceutical and medical device litigation.


[ Distinguished ATTORNEYS ]

“I love the fact that I learn something new almost every day,” Lowry said. “While I didn’t major in medicine or science in college, the majority of my cases involve issues related to those subjects, including the in-depth science that goes into the making of pharmaceutical products.” Lowry has more than 30 years of experience defending these types of cases, including multi-district litigation (MDL) matters. Her practice includes employment litigation, consumer fraud, class actions and whistleblower matters. “Over the past several years, as part of a virtual team of defense lawyers, Pat has distinguished herself as collaborative, highly competent, skilled and capable,” said Lisa Warren, Office of General Counsel, Johnson & Johnson, New Brunswick, New Jersey. “It is also a pleasure to work with her.” A ‘PERRY MASON’ FAN Lowry grew up in Kentucky, where her father, Edwin Lowry, was an attorney. “I was intrigued by law watching ‘Perry Mason’ as a girl,” she said. ‘Then in high school, we had a mock trial and I was delighted to be picked as one of the lawyers. In many ways, that really launched my legal career.” After graduating from the University of Kentucky, with high honors and as a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Lowry enrolled at George Washington University. She became notes editor for The George Washington Law Review, and earned her juris doctor with highest honors in 1981. “I worked for my dad for a couple of summers in college,” Lowry recalled. “He would send me to the courthouse to watch trials, and I had an opportunity to shadow a famous criminal defense lawyer in Louisville. It was great exposure to what goes on in a courtroom.” While Lowry enjoyed law school in Washington, she decided to move to Florida where she could play tennis year round, while getting started with her legal career. She had clerked in Miami while still in school, so after earning her law degree she moved to South Florida and clerked for U.S. District Court Judge Jose Gonzalez, Jr., in Fort Lauderdale.

JOINING HER FIRM In 1983, Lowry was hired by Steel Hector & Davis LLP, and began learning from top attorneys like Sandy D’Alemberte, Donald Middlebrooks, and her mentor, Patricia Seitz, the first female president of the The Florida Bar. “Pat provided a role model for my law career,” Lowry said. “She explained the importance of getting involved in professional groups and motivated me to run for The Florida Bar Young Lawyers’ board of governors.” In 1988 Lowry was named a partner in the firm, and moved north to West Palm Beach to help grow the firm’s litigation practice. One of her first major cases was defending a pharmaceutical company accused of providing HIV-contaminated blood products to three brothers, Ricky, Robby, and Randy Ray, who were all hemophiliacs. The trial resulted in a hung jury, but the Ray case made national headlines when the three boys were refused entry to Desoto County public schools. After a court ruled that the Ray brothers had every legal right to attend school, arsonists burned down their family home in Arcadia a week after the decision, and the Rays moved to Sarasota. Through the years, Lowry has handled many significant product liability cases, including serving as trial counsel and Florida regional counsel in the Vioxx® litigation, receiving a defense jury verdict in Tampa in 2007, the last case to be tried before the announcement of a global settlement. She was also a member of the national trial teams in the phenylpropanolamine (PPA) litigation defense, receiving a defense verdict in Sanford, and in the Baycol® litigation defense, where she managed hundreds of cases. “On the defense side, one of the keys to success is being able to personalize the people who work in an organization,” she said. “Putting a face with the pharmaceutical or medical device company helps the jury understand that these are good people whose careers are devoted to advancing medical care. They are real people trying to do the right thing.” PROFESSIONAL AND CIVIC PURSUITS Well-respected nationally throughout the legal industry, Lowry has been a leader in

many legal and community organizations, including the American College of Trial Lawyers, where she is a fellow and a former state chair. In April 2017, she participated in a national litigation conference in New York discussing “Off-Label Use Warnings: FDA, Recent Precedents, Doctors and the First Amendment.” It’s one of the dozens of legal panels and seminars that she has provided insights to other attorneys during her career. As an appointed member of the Supreme Court of Florida’s Judicial Ethics Advisory Committee and 2011-12 chair, Lowry taught the Elections Forum ethics course offered to judges and judicial candidates in Palm Beach and Broward Counties. She has also led The Florida Bar’s Civil Trial Board Certification Review Course on the topic of examination of expert and lay witnesses. Lowry also served for many years on the Executive Council of The Florida Bar’s Trial Lawyers Section, and as president of the Federal Bar Association in Palm Beach County. Outside the law, tennis is one of Lowry’s long-time personal passions. She also enjoys the arts, and serves on the board of Miami City Ballet. With her husband, U.S. Magistrate Judge James Hopkins, she has been a leader in launching the Caroga Arts Collective, a nonprofit arts organization in upstate New York near their second home in the Adirondacks. In the Palm Beach community, Lowry has also served as chair of the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches and been honored with its ATHENA Award. She was a board member and president of the March of Dimes Palm Beach, leading fundraising initiatives and receiving the organization’s Woman of Distinction Award. She has also been recognized by Executive Women of the Palm Beaches. Reflecting on her deep commitment to the law, Lowry said, “Young associates need to take ownership of their careers, rather than be a cog in someone else’s wheel. Take pride in your professional work and enjoy the personal satisfaction of making your own accomplishments as a lawyer.” SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

MANAGING THE BUSINESS OF DIVORCE 22

|

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

ROBERTA G. STANLEY enjoys untangling the complex business and financial aspects of divorce cases. “A divorce involving professionals, executives or business owners can involve different types of financial assets and structures,” she said. “So, many of my cases that go to court could be characterized as commercial litigation with a family twist.” As a partner at Brinkley Morgan for the past 20 years, Stanley has steadily expanded the firm’s family law department and became managing partner of the Fort Lauderdale office last January. Nationally recognized for her legal skills,


[ Distinguished ATTORNEYS ]

Stanley frequently lectures and publishes on a variety of family law subjects. Board certified in marital and family law, Stanley helps her clients work through the emotional as well as the financial side of divorce. “To be a good family law attorney, you have to like people and care about them,” she said. “You have to try to understand what they are going through today. But a good lawyer also needs to think ahead and consider the impact of the divorce on someone’s life ten years from now.” For example, Stanley says tax issues can be important consideration in structuring a marital settlement involving high-income or high-net-worth individuals. Estate planning issues can also come into play, especially if divorcing spouses have children from a prior marriage or a significant inheritance from a deceased parent. “I’ve seen a wife inherit $500,000, then add her husband’s name to that bank account,” she said. “That may be fine for estate planning, but if that couple splits up, she has just gifted $250,000 of her inheritance to her soon-to-be ex-spouse.” In her practice, Stanley makes it a priority to keep clients informed of their legal options, as well as the potential costs. “They can fight their issues out in court, but it usually makes more financial sense to reach a settlement,” she said. “It’s an emotionally draining time, so I try to help my clients focus on the future.” Chuck Lichtman, a business litigation partner with Berger Singerman in Fort Lauderdale, has worked with Stanley as co-counsel on a dozen complex cases. “I view her as a first-rate litigator who thinks like a business lawyer,” he said. “She has great courtroom skills and is always trying to resolve matters as efficiently as possible. I have also referred countless divorce cases to her and everyone has been satisfied with the outcomes.” PROFESSIONAL AND COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP As a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers™, Stanley frequently advises on out-of-state cases involving Florida family law issues. She is a former president of the AAML’s Florida Chapter, and an active member of the Palm Beach and Broward County Bar Associations, and the Women’s Executive Club of Fort Lauderdale. As an attorney, wife and mother, Stanley

believes in the importance of balancing work and family. “I hope that flexible hours and technology will make it easier for female attorneys to raise their children, while continuing their professional careers,” she said. “Even if a new mother takes a break from the law for a couple of years, she now has a greater opportunity to return full-time when her child is in school.” But Stanley adds that female attorneys are treated more fairly today than when she started her career in the early 1980s. “I had thick skin and ignored it when the men would call me ‘honey’ or ‘sweetie,’” she said. “I would just earn their respect by winning in the courtroom.” In addition to her professional involvement with the law – including coaching younger attorneys – Stanley has been a leader in several community organizations, including The Lord’s Place, St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church in Boca Raton, and the Broward Partnership for the Homeless. “I have had a passion for helping the homeless for a long time,” she said. “Most people don’t realize that the average age of a homeless person is 9 years old or that professionals like teachers or nurses with no safety net can go to work every morning while living out of their car. The homeless are truly the forgotten members of our society.” On the personal side, her husband, James Welzien is a retired CPA, and their daughters have continued that family tradition. Alexa Miller is an attorney in New Jersey who focuses on employment law and is married to an accountant, and daughter, Kendra Bowers, also married to a CPA, is an attorney in Park City, Utah, where the family has had a second home for more than 25 years. “We enjoy winter and summer sports in the mountains and especially spending time with the grandchildren,” Stanley said. FROM ACTING TO THE LAW Born in Pittsburgh, Stanley moved with her family to Fort Lauderdale when she was in high school. She had thought about acting as a career, but after hearing a talk from a U.S. senator, decided she wanted to go into politics. At the University of Pittsburgh, she took classes in political science, history and modern English, earning her bachelor’s degree magna cum laude.

After her parents divorced, Stanley returned to South Florida and worked with her father in real estate for several years. “He told me he would pay for law school if I moved back to south Florida and so I returned,” said Stanley, who earned her juris doctor, cum laude, at Nova Southeastern University in 1983. During law school she clerked for now sitting U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Raymond Ray before joining the Fort Lauderdale firm, Dingwall Morgan and Olsen, handling creditors work, real estate, commercial litigation and litigating business “breakups” in law firms and physician groups. After the firm split up in the mid-1980s, she worked for several years with Broward attorney Bruno DiGiulian, who became a mentor and teacher, before opening her own family law firm. Stanley joined Brinkley Morgan in 1996. “At that time it was just a paralegal and me doing family law,” she said. “Now the firm has 10 lawyers in our family law department serving clients from three offices.” While Stanley primarily handles complex divorces and prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, other attorneys in the firm focus on paternity, adoption, custody, parental responsibility and other family law matters. “In a divorce, you want to create a solution that ideally will work for both parties,” she said. “If the clients are willing to compromise, the two attorneys can work together to reach a reasonable resolution.” Stanley is glad that the legal protections of marriage have been extended to same-sex couples. “That’s a big improvement from the days when partners would live together without the support of a marital structure,” she said. Now they have the all the rights afforded married couples including acquiring joint assets, right of support in long term marriages and the ability to make medical decisions.” As Stanley looks to the future of Brinkley Morgan in her role as managing partner, she expects the firm to continue its steady growth. “One of my priorities is making sure we have a successful leadership transition from one generation to the next,” she said. “We value our young associates, as well as our senior partners, and have a great team in place to meet the legal needs of our clients.” SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

Bluestein and Wayne, P.A. RESOLVING COMPLEX MARITAL AND FAMILY LAW MATTERS 26

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018


[ Prominent LAW FIRMS ] SHARED VALUES, mutual respect, complementary skills and a focus on client service have guided the professionals at Bluestein and Wayne, P.A. for more than 25 years. As a result, the boutique Coral Gables law firm has a well-earned reputation for handling complex divorces and other marital and family law matters for corporate executives, business owners, attorneys, doctors, professional athletes, investors, and their spouses. “We have a very clear philosophy based on the golden rule,” said Harold Bluestein, who co-founded the Coral Gables firm in 1989 and is board-certified in marital and family law firm. “We believe in treating people the way we would like to be treated. That’s one reason our clients and other attorneys refer major cases to us, and why we have such long tenures in our firm.” Co-founder Barry Wayne, who is also board certified in marital and family law, says the partners’ academic backgrounds in accounting and finance are important factors in resolving tangled divorces among highnet-worth individuals. “We understand how to read complex financial statements, balance sheets and tax returns,” he said. “We also know when to engage forensic accountants to dig into the finances on a deeper level.” The firm’s third principal, Hugo Acebo, spent more than a decade prosecuting criminal matters, including domestic violence and healthcare fraud cases before joining Bluestein and Wayne in 2003. “My experience with fraudulent financial issues and criminal matters contributes to the well-rounded perspective we bring to each marital dissolution case.“ While the firm has represented highprofile CEOs, civic leaders and sports and entertainment celebrities — and their spouses — Bluestein and Wayne’s partners respect their client’s privacy. “We treat these sensitive marital and family matters with discretion,” said Bluestein. “Our clients value their privacy and we respect their wishes.” THREE EXPERIENCED PARTNERS Looking back on a legal career spanning more than four decades, Bluestein says, “I always wanted to be a lawyer.” He grew up in South Florida, and earned a bachelor’s degree with a concentration in accounting and a juris doctor with honors from the University of Miami. He was a member of the executive board of the University of Miami Law Review, and was inducted into Iron Arrow, the university’s highest honor society.

After joining the Bar in 1975, Bluestein handled divorce, torts and other types of litigation cases for a small trial firm. After five years, he left to open his own firm, and began focusing his practice on family law matters. He later joined Broad and Cassel’s Miami office as a litigation partner, and stayed five years. “I decided that I didn’t want to be in a big firm environment, so I opened this firm in 1989 with Barry, who I had hired at Broad and Cassel,” he said. Wayne followed a similar path into law, earning a bachelor’s degree in economics and a concentration in accounting from Rutgers University, and his juris doctor from University of Florida, where he was a member of the Justice Campbell Thornal National Moot Court Board and served on the Honor Court. “I knew I wanted to practice litigation, and learning accounting — the language of business — would be very helpful to me and my clients,” Wayne said. “I started working with Harold on matrimonial matters after I passed the bar in 1986, and three years later I joined him at our firm.” Both Bluestein and Wayne have served on The Florida Bar’s Marital and Family Law Certification Committee and are members of the American Association for Justice, as well as other professional organizations. Acebo grew up in Miami and earned his law degree from Florida State University. He had interned with the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office, and joined the office full time after law school. After six years, he became a Specially Designated Assistant Statewide Prosecutor in the Office of the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and an Assistant Statewide Prosecutor at the Office of Statewide Prosecution. In those roles, he led investigations involving health care fraud, money laundering, organized criminal fraud and other financial crimes. “After 10 years of government work, I decided to take the plunge and join Harold and Barry in private practice,” he said. “It’s worked out very well, as we make a great team.” Acebo is also a member of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Committee on Professionalism and is involved in business and legal organizations, including the Miami-Dade Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and the Cuban American Bar Association. The firm’s two other attorneys are Donna Tucker, who has been with the firm for more than 17 years, and Harold’s daughter, Lauren Bluestein, who joined in 2012. “Both Donna

and Lauren are valued members of our legal team,” said Bluestein. “We also have a great staff who have been with us for many years contributing to the stability of our practice.” SHARING KNOWLEDGE While the partners at Bluestein & Wayne typically handle their own cases, they also share their insights and experiences. “We know that every individual faces a unique set of issues, so it makes sense to have a ‘point person’ for each case,” Wayne said. “At the same time, we collaborate as a team, bringing our different perspectives to bear on the situation. There’s a good reason we don’t practice alone.” Bluestein notes that the firm keeps a low case count, rather than trying to build a high-volume practice. That allows the partners to drill deeply into the business, investment and financial issues that will affect a fair and equitable marital settlement. “The majority of our cases settle at mediation or before trial,” Bluestein added. “Our clients tend to be high-income earners and high-net-worth parties who understand the benefits of resolving a case rather than going to trial.” In addition to dissolution proceedings, the firm’s attorneys handle premarital and post-nuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, and other family law matters including paternity claims. “Along with our legal advice, we understand that clients often need emotional support during stressful times and do our best to encourage clients to receive therapeutic support from qualified professionals in the community” Wayne said. “We know that divorce can take its toll on the children, too, and we take their needs into consideration at every step of the process. In addition, Acebo’s practice includes matters particular to same-sex relationships and the LGBT community at large. “Samesex couples now fall under the ambit of marital law,” Acebo said. “Now, we can address their relationship on an equal legal footing with other married couples.” Acebo also provides legal advice to would-be parents seeking to form families through the use of assisted reproductive technology. His services include the drafting of genetic donation and surrogacy contracts. Summing up the firm’s approach, Bluestein said, “Collectively, we have more than 90 years of legal experience. That allows us to gather information, discuss the options, and find the best possible solutions for our clients.” SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

Keller Landsberg PA DEFENDING ATTORNEYS, HANDLING COMMERCIAL LITIGATION 28

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018


[ Prominent LAW FIRMS ] D. DAVID KELLER has some advice for attorneys facing a legal malpractice claim. “Don’t try to represent yourself because that can compound the problem,” he said. “Seek an experienced defense counsel at an early stage of the matter to see if the issue can be corrected before it causes harm.” Keller is the co-founder of Keller Landsberg PA, a Fort Lauderdale trial law firm with a focus on legal malpractice and professional liability, insurance coverage and commercial litigation. The 12-attorney firm is a member of Harmonie Group, an international network of law firms that provides legal services to the corporate and insurance risk industry. “Our malpractice clientele includes attorneys, professional firms and their insurers,” said Keller. “We understand the highly sensitive nature of professional liability and other high-exposure cases and seek to resolve them without unwanted publicity.” Keller co-founded the firm with Alan L. Landsberg in 2009, after leaving Bunnell Woulfe & Keller. Landsberg was the initial managing partner and is now of counsel to the firm. In 2011, Raymond L. Robin joined the firm, becoming managing shareholder in 2016. “My practice has always focused on commercial litigation,” he said. “I continue to handle commercial and civil cases as well as legal malpractice matters.” Keller has been defending attorneys and law firms for more than 25 years. “It started when I received a call from the managing partner of a small local firm,” he recalled. “His firm’s insurer was pleased with the results and we became approved counsel for that company and eventually others.” While most of the firm’s defense cases originate in South Florida, Keller and Robin have handled claims from Key West to Jacksonville, as well as representing firms from New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, North Carolina, Nevada, West Virginia and Georgia. The firm also represents lawyers who don’t have malpractice insurance coverage and defends lawyers in grievance proceedings by The Florida Bar. For example, Keller successfully defended a prominent lawyer in a $200 million malpractice case in Orlando eight years ago, winning the case on summary judgment without making the headlines. “We also prevailed in a $26 million claim in Orlando by gaining a summary judgment

before trial, and at trial last year in a significant probate and trust matter in Polk County,” Keller said. COMMERCIAL LITIGATION CASES Along with professional malpractice defense, Keller Landsberg handles commercial litigation cases for insurers, major companies and other institutional clients. “Corporations assume there will be litigation related to major transactions,” said Robin. “Even if you write a 1,000-page contract, it’s hard to anticipate how every provision and paragraph will be interpreted. If there is a problem with the deal, then someone will pore over the agreement trying to find a mistake.” In 2013, Robin, Keller and associate Dena B. Sacharow represented Nordion, a publicly traded Canadian company, in a Florida lawsuit filed by Bioaxone Biosciences Inc. alleging a four-year delay in FDA approval of a new drug cost the plaintiff $90 million in lost profits. The Keller Landsberg team looked at the date of the suit’s filing and found the statute of limitations would bar the case, leading to a settlement for a nominal amount. Throughout his career, Robin has focused on commercial and civil litigation matters, including shareholder cases and breach of fiduciary duty claims. He also represents clients at the appellate level throughout Florida and handles arbitration matters as well. A native of South Africa, Robin earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, and his juris doctor and M.B.A. from the University of Miami. While in law school, he served on the UM Law Review and was elected to the Order of the Coif. From 1986 to 1988 he served as judicial clerk to the Honorable Joseph Nesbitt of the Third District Court of Appeal, and then went into private practice with Beasley Olle & Downs, Tew Jordan and Duane Morris. During the so-called Great Recession, Robin defended major banks in cases involving commercial loans and foreclosures. “In one case, the borrower claimed the bank was his partner, rather than a lender, on a property he purchased for $6 million only to see its market value fall to $3 million,” he said. “Now if the property had appreciated to $10 million, instead, I don’t think he would have claimed the lender was his partner.” A VETERAN TRIAL ATTORNEY In his 38-year legal career, Keller has tried

approximately 50 cases to jury verdict, and handled numerous non-jury trials, arbitration proceedings and appeals. Keller moved to South Florida with his family at the age of 15, and earned a bachelor’s degree in history with honors from Florida Atlantic University and his juris doctor from the University of Florida in 1979. Along with defending lawyers and counseling law firms on risk management issues. Keller also has extensive experience with commercial and insurance litigation including business property insurance claims, arson, fraud, and bad faith cases. He has also successfully handled a number of personal injury plaintiff claims and suits, securing several substantial jury verdicts and settlements for injured parties. “In recent years, I have been asked to review fee applications as an expert witness, including submissions from outside counsel for compliance with outside counsel billing guidelines and The Florida Bar Rules of Professional Conduct,” Keller said. A leader in professional circles, Keller was elected to the Federation of Defense & Corporate Counsel, and the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), and is a member in the Defense Research Institute, and the Florida Defense Lawyers Association. A past president of the ABOTA, Keller was named “Trial Attorney of the Year” for 2016 by ABOTA’s Fort Lauderdale chapter. Keller is also a current member and immediate past chair of the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit Nominating Commission. He has been a member of the American Bar Association House of Delegates and served The Florida Bar and Broward County Bar Association in varied roles. Keller also served as president of Temple Beth Israel. “Our firm today has a tremendous workload, thank to a loyal client base, who call on us for significant matters,” Keller said. “We have also seen a steady increase in the number of legal malpractice claims, including suits filed by non-clients and even adverse parties.” Keller says filing malpractice lawsuits is increasingly acceptable in today’s litigious society. “When someone is unhappy with a legal outcome, the next step is to file a lawsuit,” he said. “Fortunately, a careful review of the facts often shows these claims to be without merit. In any case, these claims need to be defended vigorously to protect our client’s reputation.” SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

FINANCING THE LIFE CYCLE OF THE LAW FIRM BY DWIGHT HILL

Since 1978, when our South Florida bank was founded by a group of lawyers, our team has provided advice and assistance to law firms and attorneys from solo practitioners and boutique practices to national and multinational organizations. While each firm has its own distinctive personality, strategy, market and client base, there is a pattern of issues that need to be considered at every stage of the financial life cycle. Launching a new firm For lawyers, starting a new firm is a venture that typically occurs once or twice in a lifetime. Like buying a home or undertaking a complex surgical procedure, this can be a life-changing decision that requires careful consideration. In thinking through the issues, advice from trusted professionals can help get them off to the right start. For example, attorneys should consult with an experienced business lawyer about structuring a partnership agreement that spells out roles and responsibilities, as well as how to handle a potential dissolution of the firm in the future. It’s like a prenuptial agreement designed to resolve conflicts in advance. Many times, I have talked with attorneys who have left their old firms and started new ones with their colleagues. They tell me, “I don’t need an agreement because we are good friends who get along well.” However, circumstances change through the years and the result could be a battle that ruins those friendships. Another good step in creating a new law firm is to engage the right full-service accounting professional – especially with the pending changes in tax laws. For example, an accountant might suggest creating two levels of business structures: one that owns the assets and leases the law firm’s space, and professional associations (PAs) that passthrough income for individual attorneys.

As banking professionals, we don’t provide that type of legal or accounting advice. Instead, we draw on our wide network of professional contacts to make referrals and to act as quarterbacks during the start-up process. Financing the start-up firm On the financial side, a new firm can usually benefit from a term loan to pay for equipment and the build-out of the office space. These are capital expenses that can be depreciated over the years. New firms also require adequate working capital to pay staff and cover other expenses until revenue begins to arrive. Drawing on our decades of experience serving the legal sector, we can help the partners walk through key financial issues: • W hat are your weekly and monthly expenses? • W hat is your revenue recognition cycle? • When do you actually collect money? • What large a cash flow do you expect? • How large a line of credit will you need to keep the firm operating? Remember that even if you are winning your first cases and generating receivables, you may still be waiting for payments from your clients. Billings are not cash; only cash is cash. For many firms, the length of the revenue cycle depends on the nature of the practice. If you firm is doing defense work or business litigation, for instance, you should be generating revenue after 90 to 120 days. On the other hand, if your firm is doing contingency work or handling bankruptcies or class actions, it may be many months before you see any significant revenue. If you are funding client costs or engaging expert witnesses for cases with a big potential

Dwight Hill, Market President IBERIABANK payoff, you need to factor those expenses into your credit needs. A smaller firm might only need one loan package, but a larger firm can benefit from having two or three distinct lines of credit for capital purchases, working capital, and client expenses. This provides greater transparency and financial insights for the partners, helping them make better business decisions. Growing the firm Many successful law firms find that their financial requirements change over time. Transactional banking services, such as checking, money market, debit and credit card accounts, can easily be scaled up to accommodate growth. However, bringing in a new attorney or group will increase the operational costs to the firm prior to the arrival of the additional projected revenue. The firm is likely to need money to cover salaries, purchase additional equipment and reconfigure the existing office or lease additional space. Through the years, our bank has provided hundreds of terms loans to law firms, helping them stay focused on moving that larger volume of cases forward, rather than worrying about paying the bills. On the other hand, some firms take a conservative approach to finances and don’t want to take on new debt. That’s an SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

[ Guest CONTRIBUTORS ] understandable position that avoids the risks associated with over-expansion or too-rapid growth. However, it may also mean forgoing new revenue that could add to the firm’s profitability by more than covering those loan payments. If your firm has turned down new business because of a lack of financial resources to carry the case, you may want to consider creating a certain level of debt in order to gain that revenue. Having an experienced banking partner is also important in managing client trust accounts and escrow accounts. A failure to comply with fiduciary, legal and ethical requirements could result in disbarment, loss of license and other penalties. We strive to preserve those funds in their entirety, and any service charges or fees should be covered by the firm to avoid any concerns from the client. We have also participated in The Florida Bar’s Interest on Trust Accounts (IOTA) program since it was implemented in 1981. Although rates are currently low, we believe clients are entitled to interest on their trust and escrow accounts. If market rates rise in the coming year, earning interest will be an increasingly important issue for law firms handling these client accounts. Handling the transition It takes careful planning for mature law firms to manage business transitions, such as a sale or merger with another firm or the transition of leadership to a new generation of partners. It’s also essential to consider

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

the financial ramifications of a senior partner’s retirement – particularly if he is the “rainmaker” for the firm. If the firm’s leadership believes that seeking a merger or sale is the right strategic direction, then an accountant or transaction specialist can provide advice on enhancing the firm’s value in the marketplace. That might mean downsizing the firm to reduce expenses or accelerating revenue collection before putting the firm on the market. Effective succession planning is needed for firms seeking to pass on the mantle of leadership. This is a process best done over a period of several years, so that younger attorneys are well prepared to keep the firm moving ahead after one or more of the senior partners leaves the firm for retirement. Otherwise, it might be too late for a small firm or a solo practitioner to find a junior partner who can help the exiting partner realize the true value of his or her investment. Hopefully, a partnership agreement will specify the terms of a partner’s exit, but there are likely to be other considerations to discuss, such as the timing and nature of the payout, any ongoing involvement with the firm, as well as benefits like health insurance and vehicle leases. Our bank offers a loan program that allows senior associates to buy into a firm or provides funding to a group of partners who want to buy out the share of a senior partner making the transition to the next chapter of life.

Assisting attorneys in their careers Just as law firms grow and mature, individual attorneys also need certain types of financial advice and banking services at different points in their careers. For instance, many young associates are carrying a high level of student debt. We often counsel these newcomers to the profession about making appropriate financial decisions, such as minimizing expensive credit card debt until they can pay down their older loans. We also assist attorneys by financing their lifestyle decisions, such as the purchase of a home or condominium – including jumbo mortgages for expensive properties – as well as loans for vacation homes, boats and planes. As attorneys move forward in their careers, we can assist with financial planning, building investment portfolios and managing wealth. Later in life, we work with legal, insurance and accounting professionals who can prepare trust and estate documents in accordance with a senior attorney’s wishes. We then can act as a fiduciary and administer the estate. With our deep pool of knowledge and experience in serving the legal community, our bank is committed to providing attorneys, law firms and their clients with the right financial products and services, building lasting relationships as a trusted advisor.

On October 24, 2017, the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (“BLS”) released its employment projections for 2016 through 2026. The BLS projects that over the next decade employment will increase by 11.5 million jobs. Moreover, BLS projects that “[h]ealth care industries and their associated occupations are expected to account for a large share of the new jobs projected through 2026…” Notwithstanding this optimistic outlook, the number of distressed hospitals and healthcare providers has increased over the past year. Diagnosing a financially distressed hospital or healthcare facility is similar to diagnosing any industry in trouble. Once there are early warnings signs it is

imperative to get the right help. This may be the single most important decision to save a struggling hospital from closure. Moreover, any creditor should also obtain qualified professional help when doing business with a hospital facing a shutdown. Many financial problems—like patients- are more difficult to “treat” the later that help is sought. News of distressed hospital and healthcare facilities has increased dramatically. Within the past twelve months, several high-profile healthcare facilities have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, including: 1. Preferred Care Partners, one of the largest operators of nursing homes and

P  hoenician Medical Center and its related affiliates filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy August 24, 2017. 3. Cypress Urgent Care and 5 other of its affiliates filed for chapter 11 relief on August 2, 2017. 4. Morehead Memorial Hospital a 108 bed non-profit hospital in Eden, N.C., filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy July 10, 2017. 5. A  cadiana Management Group, which runs post-acute hospitals across several states, filed for chapter 11 relief on June 23, 2017. 6. Premiere Medical Management Group, a multispecialty medical group, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy June 15, 2017. 7. 21st Oncology Holdings, a cancer care services provider, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy May 25, 2017. More are expected! Additionally, numerous hospitals have seen their credit ratings downgraded. Further, rural hospitals, including Critical Access Facilities (CAH), are closing at an alarming rate.1 The failure to maintain these types of facilities impacts the ability of patients seeking urgent care for life threatening situations. Moreover, rural hospitals typically provide a significant source of employment and business trading opportunities in these rural areas. Creditors of healthcare facilities, including the professionals and trade vendors, need to be proactive to maximize the prospects of a successful turnaround or bankruptcy process, which often times is also the best way to ensure a long lasting customer and the recovery of any losses. The following are warning signs that warrant heightened scrutiny and proactivity: planning: a. Reduced or delayed reimbursements to the health care provider; b. Shifting community needs; c. New or changing legislation and regulations; d. Employment issues; e. Reports of compliance deficiencies; f. Material reductions in charitable giving to the hospital; and g. S ignificant litigation that could have a material adverse effect on the facility or its operations.

Hospitals provide medical services and seek to get paid for these services. However, the financial viability of a hospital is more complicated. The facility may depend upon on governmental assistance. Its status as a “for profit” or “not for profit” facility may also impact its overall financial health. Finally, its ability to provide ancillary or additional services to generate different or “non-traditional” revenue streams may further impact its bottom line. Generally speaking, most for profit healthcare facilities receive revenue from three primary sources: (a) government reimbursement (Medicare/Medicaid); (b) private insurance companies; and (c) private pay from individuals. Typically, the private insurance and private pay provide the highest reimbursement rates and help “bridge” the gap on government reimbursement that usually does not cover the full cost of services. Not for profit health care facilities often also receive significant financial support from charitable giving. However, recent analytical scholarship on the profitability of hospitals (both for-profit and not-for profit) shows that more than half of all hospitals in the U.S. are unprofitable (41 percent) or highly unprofitable (14 percent). Only 45 percent are profitable. Half of all U.S. hospitals lost $82 or more on patient care services for each patient discharged in 2013. See “A More Detailed Understanding of Factors Associated with Hospital Profitability” Bai Ge and Anderson Gerard, Health Affairs Vol. 35 No. 5 (May 1, 2016). Similarly facilities that rely on a single source private insurance plan (i.e., the largest employer in a region) need to be wary of local employment changes that could put such private insurance plan at risk. If the facility loses the ability to supplement its reimbursement mix and is left solely with government reimbursement, the lower government reimbursement rates could put the facility at risk. Likewise, healthcare facilities need to constantly be mindful of increasing operational costs. Rural facilities are also at greater risk of rising costs impacting their financial health. These facilities often do not have the economies of scale or lower cost options to obtain the goods and services that are required to run the facility. Additionally, the cost of

providing services is usually higher at these facilities. Accordingly, both the facility and service providers need to be aware of any issues that could change rapidly in the marketplace that would increase costs. CONCLUSION Even with the prognosis that demand for healthcare services will increase over the next ten years, the consistent rise in healthcare facility bankruptcies shows the risk in operating and doing business in this sector will continue to be challenging. Based upon the types of services provided and the community need for these facilities, particularly in rural areas, government regulation will continue to be a significant factor in the equation. But like most industries, a forward looking approach and proper planning can often be the best way to avoid financial distress. Paying attention to the early warning signs and being proactive doesn’t just apply to the patientit applies to healthcare facilities too, and it may be the difference between being financially viable or becoming another statistic. 1

For example the Copper Basin Medical Center in

Copperhill, Tennessee closed citing a lack of working capital. However, no bankruptcy has been filed as of yet.

THE IMPACT OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ON COMMERCIAL LITIGATION ANDREW C. HALL

Commercial litigation can be a long and expensive legal process for businesses, investors and professional firms. Many of our clients have asked how the evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) might affect the litigation process. Here are my responses to some of the typical questions we receive. Q. How is AI being used for legal applications today? Artificial intelligence technology is moving quickly into many aspects of our lives as consumers. Many homes and motor vehicles are equipped with voice recognition devices that “learn” our speech patterns and habits, and provide us with road directions, turn on the TV, adjust the thermostat and order a pizza. In the business world, AI is being used to help manage legal contracts. For instance, AI can guide a salesperson in determining which provisions of a standard contract to include in a customized document when signing up a new customer. An AI system can also send alerts in advance of critical dates in the contract, such as renewals and options, to help the business manage the agreement more effectively. Q. What is its potential for the future? Artificial intelligence tools have great potential to improve the efficiency of the discovery process in commercial litigation matters. Today, it’s not unusual to have hundreds of thousands of computer files, and email, voice, texts and video messages relating to a complex case. Currently, law firms like ours use computer algorithms to search for keywords or other relevant material buried in a vast pile of electronic documents. However, once the material has been gathered, it must still be reviewed by a legal team and analyzed for significance. For major cases, we may hire additional people to do that work, which

must then be reviewed by our attorneys for accuracy. The evolution of AI tools will add a powerful analytic component, such as building a chronology of events and identifying the fact patterns in a case. Q. Can you provide an example? Let’s assume there was a series of back-andforth negotiations involving multiple drafts of a real estate development contract prior to reaching an agreement. A robust AI system will be able to provide a timeline of each step in the negotiation and topics of discussion. If there is a dispute over the contract, an AI system can then review the relevant clauses in the agreement with the actual implementation. In this real estate case, that might include who did the work, when was it done, was it inspected, what were the costs. So, if 90 percent of the work on the development matches up with the contract, the legal team can then spend its time focusing on the 10 percent of the work at issue in the case – a much better use of their time. Q. Can AI also help in writing contracts? Artificial intelligence tools can also be applied to the transactional side of the business world. In our multifaceted global economy, business contracts are becoming longer and more complex. AI can help both parties in the drafting of business contracts by pulling together the standard clauses for a particular situation. Then the attorneys can focus their time on the most critical points when constructing a mutually beneficial agreement. From the perspective of a litigator, it’s important to understand that different people can read contracts in different ways. Therefore, it’s vital for the language on those critical points to be crystal clear to both parties. Q. Will AI reduce litigation costs? In a major case, the effective use of AI could

deliver some potential savings by reducing the number of billable hours necessary to gather the facts and establish a timeline and fact pattern. The legal team can them use its resources in a more efficient manner, potentially reducing the cost of litigation. Q. Are there other benefits? AI has the potential to make the discovery phase of the litigation process proceed more quickly. Since this can be one the most timeconsuming aspects of a case, these systems could potentially help the parties resolve their disputes more quickly through arbitration or litigation. Q. What steps can businesses take now related to AI? My first suggestion would be to look at using algorithms and online tools for writing and managing your business contracts. Today, you can have access to the best contracts in your industry written by the nation’s top lawyers. Take advantage of their knowledge in preparing your contracts, which can then be modified wherever appropriate. Second, you should recognize that we live in a litigious society. Someone who files a commercial lawsuit will want to see your relevant documents on your computers, tablets, mobile devices and third-party data services. So, use a powerful IT management tool to code that data and manage your information. Then, you should be able to provide the relevant information more quickly and in a cost-efficient manner. Q. Will AI be a differentiator for law firms? Law firms that invest in artificial intelligence systems or partner with experienced IT companies will have an advantage over their competitors in the next decade. These powerful and versatile tools will allow law firms to serve their clients more effectively in both transactional and litigation matters. Just remember that a tool is only as good as the person using the implement. Engaging an experienced law firm is essential for unlocking the potential of artificial intelligence in commercial litigation.

10 TIPS TO PREVENT CHILD SEX ABUSE

…and why publicizing sex abuse cases is good for society BY JOHN LEIGHTON

As many as 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused by age 18. This has become an epidemic few want to discuss. The longterm implications are clear, and the recent awakening to the extent and depth of sexual abuse and harassment in this country has filled the media, as well as shaken the bedrock of our major institutions: media, entertainment, corporations and government. Children are the most vulnerable victims of sexual abuse. As demonstrated by the nowfamiliar clergy abuse scandals, the continuing assaults by pedophiles and others who use power or control over children continues to create repeated generations of victims. Sometimes it is a member of the clergy, a trusted teacher or employer. Often it is simply a friend of the family or relative. Many of these children carry this abuse with them throughout their lives, making it the most under-reported of all crimes. When they do report it, they are conflicted with feelings of shame, self-blame and fear of retribution or harassment. Most studies reveal that the average time of reporting is many years after the event, especially for young victims. To make matters worse, the criminal justice system is slow, favors the criminal defendant, and sets an almost unreachable bar for conviction (beyond a reasonable doubt). Victims are usually not represented, and have very little or no control over the process. The strongest weapon a victim of sexual abuse may have is a civil case. There are some things experts say parents 116

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

can do to help prevent their child from becoming a victim: Strangers are not the worst of your worries. Strangers are not the biggest threat. By far (70-90% of the time) most children are abused by someone they know or trust. Because of this, be careful about who has access to your child especially when others are not around. Tell your child that danger can come from someone they trust. Explain to children what touching is okay and what is not, even at a young age. Just say NO. Tell children that they can tell someone not to touch them and refuse to touch someone else. Teach children about secrets – there are different types. If you say “never keep a secret,” that’s not reasonable. Explain are some that are OK, like surprise parties, which are okay because they are not kept secret for long, and there are bad secrets, those that the child is supposed to keep secret forever, which are bad. Believe your child. Establish a relationship of faith and trust with your kids. You don’t want your child to be afraid to tell you something. When you’re talking about inappropriate touching, or someone who wants to do something that you suspect is inappropriate, let your child know that you will always believe them and will never be angry with them. Look for red flags. Sexual predators often “groom” both children and their parents to gain their trust. But even the really clever ones will usually have some red flag that is just a little bit unusual. One example is the

adult whose home is filled with toys and video games, or has few or no adult friends or activities. These can be big red flags. Check the individual out, including the sex offender registry: http://offender.fdle.state.fl.us/ offender/homepage.do Always know where your child is and whom they are with. Know your children’s friends and their parents. No single adults: Always ensure there is more than one adult chaperone for any trip or event. Volunteer to go with them. Be suspicious if your child is singled out as “special” by an adult. Pedophiles groom children by making them feel special and singling them out. Real professionals rarely single out a child. Trust your instincts as a parent. If you feel uncomfortable about leaving a child with someone, hold off. Take action if you suspect anything: contact authorities, schools, police and any other institution involved. If your child has been abused, consider bringing a civil case as well. Although it’s important to involve law enforcement, a criminal case is only part of the solution. It almost never creates an institutional deterrent to preventing child sexual abuse. Civil sexual abuse cases can do that. They also empower victims and,


[ Guest CONTRIBUTORS ] especially in this time of #MeToo, allow the civil courts to hold accountable both the individual abusers and the institutions who support them. Because of various statutes of limitations, it is essential to always act promptly. That means encouraging children and teens to come forward and say what happened. It also means preserving potential evidence, whether by cell phone, social media, witnesses or other physical evidence. In bringing sex abuse and assault litigation, we encourage a more responsible institutional and corporate culture. By creating a financial incentive to prevent sexual abuse and assault, civil cases can make a greater difference than almost any other device. We cannot count on the criminal justice system to stop this conduct.

A few years ago, a 90-year-old pedophile was convicted of raping and sodomizing a 4-year-old girl and her sister. As one expert on child sex abuse is fond of saying, “Pedophiles never, ever retire.” Until we stop the vicious cycle of child sexual abuse, civil cases may be the last, best hope for retiring some of these animals.

Physician Malpractice Liability:

HOW PHYSICIANS MAY PROTECT THEMSELVES WITH A ROBOTICS REVOLUTION IN HEALTHCARE BY JARED DALL’AU Robotics has caused an evolution within the healthcare industry. Robotics now permeates almost every aspect of healthcare. These aspects range from simple tasks, like taking vitals during triage, to invasive surgeries, such as neurosurgery. While many of these machines have been a help to the physicians, they also potentially create a new set of issues for physicians. Machine malfunction and/or misuse may open the door to malpractice liability to physicians. RISKS OF ROBOTICS A comprehensive study reviewed fourteen (14) years of data on the adverse effects of robotics in surgery. The study stated that there were “144 deaths (1.4% of the 10,624 reports), 1,391 patient injuries (13.1%), and 8,061 device malfunctions (75.9%).”1 The study stated that more complex surgeries, such as cardiothoracic and head and neck, had higher numbers of injuries and deaths than more basic surgeries, like gynecology and urology.2 The study also determined that the rate of death and injury remained constant for the final seven years of the study.3 Equipment error was a large part

of the problem, as issues “such as falling of burnt/broken pieces of instruments into the patient (14.7%), electrical arcing of instruments (10.5%), unintended operation of instruments (8.6%), system errors (5%), and video/imaging problems (2.6%), constituted a major part of the reports.” 4 Beyond direct injury, there were additional ways device malfunctions affected patients. Robotics “malfunctions impacted patients in terms of injuries or procedure interruptions. In 1,104 (10.4%) of the events, the procedure was interrupted to restart the system (3.1%), to convert the procedure to non-robotic techniques (7.3%), or to reschedule it to a later time (2.5%).”5 This comprehensive study highlights the inherent danger of using robotics in surgery. What is troubling for physicians is that rate of injury remained constant from 2007 until the study’s completion. With a consistent and likely threat of injury to patients, physicians should be vigilant in having the appropriate malpractice coverage that includes the use of robotics as well as taking the necessary steps to protect themselves from potential liability.

GET SUFFICIENT TRAINING WITH THE ROBOT Physicians should have sufficient training with the robotic device they plan to use. In a recent case, an expert on the operation of a specific robotic surgery device testified that surgeons must be credentialed in order to use the robotic surgery device because it is one of the most complex medical devices that a surgeon can use.6 The experts further testified at trial that “confidence” with the device is not achieved until a surgeon has completed 150 to 250 procedures.7 The defendant in that case only required two proctored surgeries to receive credentialing for the robotic surgery device.8 MALPRACTICE COVERAGE It is important for physicians to review their malpractice coverage to determine at least two main points. The first is that the malpractice coverage includes protection for robotic surgery and/or robotic services. Malpractice insurance contracts may not be updated for years and may only do so with amendments. It is important to review the contract with any subsequent amendments SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

[ Guest CONTRIBUTORS ] in order to ensure that robotic surgery and/or robotic services are among the services covered by the plan. Second, physicians should check to make sure that there are no carve-outs within the contract that open them up to liability. For example, malpractice contracts may not cover robotic surgery if it is considered an “experimental” procedure. Although robotics may or may not be included within “experimental” clauses, there may be a separate exclusionary or other clause addressing the use of robotics. Other examples of clauses to analyze are those regarding “medical necessity,” which may also exclude or otherwise address the use of robotic surgery and/or robotic services. CONCLUSION Physicians should approach the use of robotics through a lens of cautious optimism. These robots may help physicians improve their patients’ quality of life by performing surgeries that potentially entail decreased pain, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery times. These robots, however, may also potentially open up physicians to new forms of malpractice liability. It is important that physicians ensure that the practices and coverage they maintain keeps pace with

the robotics they use. Failure of physicians to approach robotics with the utmost caution can be dangerous not only to patients but to themselves. Homa Alemzadeh, Ravishankar Iyer, Zbigniew Kalbarczyk, Nancy Levenson and Jai

DID FATCA REPORTING HELP CATCH MANAFORT AND GATES? BY STANLEY I. FOODMAN International tax compliance enforcement is a priority effort for the United States Government. Tax avoidance schemes, cross-border transactions and complex “hard to understand” business structures have heightened IRS tax compliance concerns. The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) enacted by President Obama in 2010 has combating offshore tax evasion as its main purpose. Known to be a real “headache” for most U.S. Expatriates and Foreign Financial Institutions (FFIs), FATCA requires FFIs to report information about accounts held with them by U.S. citizens and U.S. Permanent Residents. Meaning, FFIs gather information of U.S. taxpayers who have accounts in their financial institutions and report it back to the U.S. Government — the IRS. Over the last ten years, and particularly since the FBI’s case against UBS, the global financial landscape has

118

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2018

changed. Major initiatives have been undertaken on a worldwide basis to combat tax evasion. Information exchange programs like FATCA in the U.S. and the Common Reporting Standard (CRS) implemented by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) are aimed at ensuring that foreign financial accounts owned by and/ or controlled by taxpayers around the world are disclosed to appropriate taxing authorities. The first exchange of the CRS took place in September, 2017 with 49 Jurisdictions exchanging information and an additional 53 have committed to exchange in September, 2018. Under FATCA, the IRS has been receiving tax information from U.S. taxpayers that have reportable ownership or signing authority over foreign accounts around the world for the last 3 years. Furthermore, the IRS and the Department of justice ongoing efforts have focused on

ensuring compliance by taxpayers with U.S. reporting obligations and raising awareness of U.S. tax and information reporting obligations with respect to nonU.S. investments. Many taxpayers have “bitten the bullet” and have become tax compliant by disclosing their assets and earnings through IRS programs such as the Streamlined Filing Compliance Procedures and the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP). Many are still taking risks through not entering into existing IRS amnesty programs and becoming tax compliant. This is hard to understand given the reality that taxpayers that are not tax compliant face hefty penalties that could include incarceration. FFIs have had to expand the capabilities of their compliance departments to meet increasing regulatory demands under FATCA. Furthermore, a number of FFIs have closed existing


[ Guest CONTRIBUTORS ] accounts or simply denied new accounts to U.S. citizens and U.S. Permanent Residents. U.S. taxpayers living overseas in certain jurisdictions have become “financial pariahs” where they live because of the expensive account servicing costs for local banks (FFIs) caused by the requirements of FATCA. FFIs will not open bank accounts for U.S. Citizens and/ or U.S. Permanent Residents without a W-9, or other pertinent tax documentation; an issue for many the almost 9 million U.S. expats living worldwide. The main focus of FATCA is to combat tax evasion by preventing U.S. Persons from offshoring assets to avoid reporting their existence and paying taxes on the taxable income that they produce. FATCA requires FFIs to report information to the IRS about financial accounts held by U.S. taxpayers, or by foreign entities in which U.S. taxpayers hold a substantial ownership interest. The FFIs are encouraged to either directly register with the IRS to comply with the FATCA regulations or comply with the FATCA Intergovernmental Agreements (IGA 1A) treated as in effect in their jurisdictions in order to avoid being withheld upon. This means that the FFIs have to comply under threat of a 30% withholding penalty on certain of their U.S. transactions. FFIs that enter into an agreement with the IRS to report on their account holders may be required to withhold 30% on certain payments to foreign payees if such payees do not comply with FATCA. That said, FFIs and their bankers have been drafted as “reporting and withholding agents” for the U.S. Government. Did FATCA reporting have anything to do with the Manafort and Gates Indictment? IRS currently has three years of FATCA derived U.S. Taxpayer data under its belt. There are currently 117 Jurisdictions that have entered into IGAs with the U.S. Government. Within the 117 Jurisdictions are the three countries that are named in the Manafort/Gates Indictment dated 10/27/17. These three countries have IGAs with the U.S. Government. The 3 countries are: Cyprus: has in Force a Model 1 Agreement dated 9/21/15. This means that the tax authority of Cyprus sent their first report in 2016 to cover the year 2015

(and perhaps part of 2014) and prior to September 30th of 2017 sent the report for 2016. Seychelles: has an “Agreement in Substance” with the U.S. Government dated 6/30/14. In this case, it is difficult to determine if there has been an information exchange. St. Vincent and the Grenadines: have a Model 1 Agreement dated 5/13/16 in Force. This means that prior to September 30th of 2017, the tax authorities of St. Vincent and the Grenadines sent their first report to cover years 2015 and 2016. How were Manafort and Gates able to open and maintain their accounts at the FFIs domiciled in these countries? Were their accounts reported to the IRS through the FATCA exchange? Is it through FATCA reporting that the Special

Counsel learned that Manafort and Gates had undisclosed foreign accounts? If so, the FATCA report led to the fact that Manafort and Gates also failed to file required FBARs (Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Account). While FATCA has been a “headache” for many, if it is indeed a source for the Manafort/Gates Indictment, it just won a “gold medal” for the U.S. Government.
