Winner: CANADA

Asset Protection Law Firm of the Year Based in Toronto, Canada, and with years of onshore and offshore experience, Rogerson Law Group focuses on national and international cross border litigation and asset protection. Established in 2006, in Canada’s largest city, Rogerson Law Group was founded after 25 years in practice by UK-qualified asset protection specialist barrister Andrew Rogerson, who has developed an international reputation for his formidable experience having practiced as far afield as South Africa, Australia, London, the Turks and Caicos Islands, and Jersey in the Channel Islands.

Andrew Rogerson Partner Rogerson Law Group TD Canada Trust Tower 161 Bay Street, 27th Floor Toronto, ON M5J 2S1 T: + 1 416 504 2259 E: andrew@rogersonlaw.com W: www.torontoestatelawyers.ca W: www.rogersonlaw.com

“If you are looking for an asset protection lawyer, or experts in domestic or cross border matters or any disputes such as those requiring expert estate litigation lawyers, particularly with an international element, we are the go-to firm,” says Rogerson. “We have a robust team of experienced solicitors including asset protection lawyers, cross border litigators, estate planning lawyers, and commercial lawyers with backgrounds including commerce and central government. In addition, we have experienced estate planning lawyers and estate litigation lawyers available. “Our lawyers are adept at identifying out-of-the-box solutions for clients, and we have a successful track record in high profile, ground-breaking cases. Our list of successful cases is evident of our expertise and experience in our chosen areas of service.” Rogerson’s practice at the firm focuses on asset protection, using offshore tax havens, and the law of tax residency and cross border litigation: mainly estates and family law. An experienced cross-border advocate, he is considered a leading authority in Canada on asset protection structures and litigating trust issues having spent 11 of his 38 years of practice in offshore tax havens. Called to the Bar of England and Wales in 1981 by Middle Temple, Rogerson served his pupilage in the insolvency chambers of Michael Crystal QC, at 3-4 South Square, Gray’s Inn, London. Since then, his extensive international legal experience includes practicing in South Africa, Australia, the Turks and Caicos Islands, Jersey (Channel Islands), Ontario, Alberta, and as a barrister in London. He is also a Memberof the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).

inbound clients with tax-residency issues. As a result of their delivery on promises and quality work in the area of asset protection, the firm has won several awards over the years. “We are an award-winning asset protection team. Our clients will benefit from the unrivalled experience and reputation of our ground-breaking asset protection and cross border lawyers. With our expertise, we will help identify the best asset and wealth protection model that best suits our clients’ unique needs and goals.” Rogerson feels the success of the niche asset protection practice at Rogerson Law Group is built on years of solid international legal experience in both offshore and onshore jurisdictions. “Our service in this area has been well-recognised so much so that we have been awarded with the asset protection law firm of the year for the second year in a row. “Indeed, establishing offshore trusts in exotic locations, protecting our client’s assets and safeguarding against bankruptcy are just some of our forte areas.” The firm has seen a steady expansion, which, according to Rogerson, is a reflection of the increasing internationalization of businesses and commerce. “The vast international nature of Canadian society comprising individuals of different nationalities owning assets in other jurisdictions means a growing need for the best cross border legal assistance available. The lawyers at our firm have the international skills and experience to meet those needs so moving across the world comes easy.” With three offices across Canada, the firm today serves clients as far away as London, Dubai, and Tokyo, with regular overseas visits from its team.

In demand with high net worth individuals in Canada, UK, and Dubai, he also lectures on profession development courses for lawyers and other professionals and has written many published articles on the subject of asset protection. Rogerson’s team of 11 lawyers advise on, and litigate, domestic and cross-border trust and estates matters; undertake asset protection for high and ultra high net worth individuals and assist
