International tax attorney Eduardo “Ed” Arista has joined Holland & Knight as a partner in the Private Wealth Services Group. Mr. Arista brings with him more than 20 years of experience providing proactive tax, corporate and estate planning for domestic and international private clients and closely held businesses. His native Spanish fluency and extensive cross-border experience equip him to work more effectively with his Latin American clients and their local counsel, allowing them to draw on his large and well-established network of foreign professionals throughout the region. He will reside in the firm’s Miami office.

As an attorney and Certified Public Accountant, Mr. Arista is also familiar with the most complex international income and estate tax forms and filing requirements. He was the principal of Arista Law & Tax prior to joining Holland & Knight. Earlier in July, Holland & Knight also welcomed tax Partner Logan Gans to its Private Wealth Services Group in Miami.

“Holland & Knight’s international tax practice is well known in South Florida, and Ed’s arrival further strengthens our leading position,” said Christopher Boyett, co-chair of Holland & Knight’s national Private Wealth Services Group. “Ed has an excellent reputation as a trusted advisor to high-net-worth individuals and families. His practice is well suited for our firm, and his clients will benefit from having access to our real estate, corporate and litigation services when they need it.”
