I’m Susanne Leone, founder and partner at Leone Zhgun, P.A. , Miami, Florida. I worked as a lawyer in Germany before I was admitted to Florida. In implementing my previous experience from the German market, I advise and support companies and private individuals in the planning and implementation of company formations, international transactions, various businesses and investments in various industries in the USA. Another focus of our work is advising private individuals, domestic and foreign companies or investors on immigration to the USA. In addition, we offer our clients legal advice in the areas of real estate, taxes, German law as well as asset and estate planning.
With our law firm we also offer services for private individuals and companies as well as for law firms that have to deal with cases under German or US law.
I am an active member of the Florida Bar Association and currently chair the Asia Committee for the Florida Bar International Law Section. I am a member of the Florida Bar ILS Executive Board and co-chair of INALP’s German division. I am also a member of the German-American Chamber of Commerce South Florida, the American Bar Association, the Florida Bar Tax Section and the Munich Bar Association. I am admitted to the bar in Germany and Florida.
A strong, long-term and familial relationship of trust with our clients is a priority in our law firm. We take care of our clients and represent the point of view that we would choose for ourselves.
Our main activity is advising European companies on expanding into the USA and assisting private clients with their legal needs when investing in the USA. In addition, we offer our clients legal advice in the areas of immigration, real estate, taxes, German law as well as asset and estate planning.
Starting and running a business in the United States requires extensive expertise. We support our clients in planning before entering the market, such as setting up a company, choosing the appropriate company structure and jurisdiction, implementing tax saving strategies and advising on visa matters. After the establishment, we continue to support our clients in their daily commercial and corporate affairs.
Our client base ranges from small and medium-sized to well-known large companies that have successfully expanded into the US, as well as private individuals investing in the US. As a law firm, we often act as their general counsel and build long-term, personal relationships that last for years. We have an experienced network of lawyers in various jurisdictions and have thus created a global infrastructure that enables us to support our clients with all their legal needs.
