Client Testimonial for Law Firms Hewitsons LLP and Phillips Lytle

Posted Dec 18, 2018

 My name is Fran Hickman; I run a London based interior and architectural design studio. 

On 10th December 2018, my studio contacted our Solicitors, Hewitsons LLP in Cambridge, to say that we were looking for information regarding tax and customs laws in the USA, with a view to setting up a studio there—probably in New York City. I was in New York at the time, so a quick response was very important. 

Hewitsons are the founders of LawExchange International, a network of independent law firms. They immediately contacted one of their member firms in the USA, Phillips Lytle LLP, which had an office in New York. That same day, Ken Crystal, a Partner in the New York office, got in touch and we arranged an early meeting. 

At the meeting, I was given advice on setting up a business vehicle in New York; immigration and taxation; real estate and employment related matters. In addition, Ken Crystal offered to introduce me to real estate brokers who would assist us in finding a suitable base in New York. 

I was delighted with the speed of response from our Solicitors and Phillips Lytle. In the global marketplace, this level of international co-operation and assistance is essential.
