Asset Protection Attorney

Antreas Hindoyan, Esq.

Over his six year career at PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP, Antreas specialized in international structuring for hedge funds, private equity funds and the sovereign wealth funds of several national governments.

His focus was on implementing the appropriate global business structures of multinational corporations and alternative investment funds with the aim of minimizing taxes and finding the most favorable regulatory host locations by utilizing foreign tax laws and international treaties.

As a natural extension of these deals, he subsequently structured the personal assets of the members of such funds to correlate their business goals with their family dynastic goals.

At the United States Dept. of Justice US Attorney’s Office Tax Division, Antreas assisted in defending the United States of America against lawsuits and further assisted in the prosecution of tax crimes.
