FOREIGN INVESTMENT IN THE U.S.

     James Nobles LLC has, for several years, provided specialized advice to foreign clients investing in the U.S.  Over the course of representing many clients from all regions of the world as they invest in the U.S., we have acquired a great deal of expertise in this area.

     Over the past few years, the U.S. regulatory environment for inbound investment has dramatically changed.  Congress has come to view foreign investors as a fertile source of tax revenues which triggers no adverse reaction at the voting polls.  At the same time that Congress has enacted very burdensome laws aimed at increasing the tax revenues foreign investors pay in the U.S., the U.S. Internal Revenue Service has put foreign investors under increased scrutiny to ensure that they pay their fair share of taxes.  Today, efficient tax structuring is a critical centerpiece of all successful foreign investment into the U.S.  Utilizing our years of experience, we design our clients' inbound investments to be efficient in the context of their global tax situations, taking into account their home country tax burden as well as the impact of any applicable tax treaties.

     James Nobles LLC has represented investors from many regions of the world in investing in a wide variety of U.S. investments, including real estate (apartment complexes, shopping centers and timberland as well as raw land), and numerous, diverse industries such as the handling equipment industry, computer and software industry, the printing industry and the hotel industry.
