Secretary Tania Curcio


Sandra is a partner in the private client and tax division.

Her work includes complex international tax, succession and governance planning for ultra-high net worth international families. She has extensive experience in the development of wealth management structures for non-US families, US and international pre-immigration planning and, conversely, expatriation planning. She advises on US income and transfer tax rules affecting non-US residents with US income and/or assets, including US real estate, as well as US residents with foreign (non-US) income or assets; rules applicable to income taxation of complex non-US trusts and their beneficiaries; and the US antifederal regimes relevant to US shareholders of foreign (non-US) corporations.

In addition to her practice, she was appointed in 2019 as Divisional CEO of the global private client and tax team. In such role, she co-led the strategy for Withers to be recognized as the only truly global firm to offer integrated domestic and international private client and tax advice.
