Areas of Practice
Amy P. Jetel focuses her practice on the design, implementation, and administration of outbound and inbound foreign trust and entity structures to meet the estate-planning and asset-protection goals of multi-jurisdictional clients. In this practice, she has gained a depth of experience in the U.S. tax and compliance aspects of non-U.S. trusts and entities, and she frequently addresses complex international tax and treaty issues faced by individuals with ties to multiple jurisdictions. Ms. Jetel has developed a niche practice in planning around the throwback-tax regime that applies to foreign non-grantor trusts, and in representing clients before the Internal Revenue Service to bring previously unreported foreign structures into full compliance. Ms. Jetel also practices in the areas of traditional estate and disability planning, probate and estate administration, and entity formation and governance. She is Board Certified in Estate Planning and Probate Law (Texas Board of Legal Specialization), and she is a frequent author and speaker in the areas of estate planning, asset protection, and international taxation and compliance. Ms. Jetel is a partner in the U.S. law firm of Beckett Tackett & Jetel, PLLC.
