Richard WestlundWhy DIY Is Not a Good Idea!

When embarking on a home improvement project, many people take pride in using a “do it yourself” (DIY) strategy. If you have the expertise to replace an appliance, paint the exterior, or apply new flooring, you can save significant dollars by doing the work yourself. And if you make a mistake, it’s not that hard to hire someone to repair the damage.

But a DIY approach is a bad idea when contemplating a personal or commercial investment in South Florida – particularly for foreign nationals. There are complex financial and tax issues to consider, making it essential to engage an experienced attorney, accountant and banker.

One of our features in our Midyear Edition takes a close look at trends in international tax and wealth management, with insights from several leading professionals. They agree that it takes a team approach to provide the right combinational of services for each client.

In this issue, you can also gain insights into various fields of practice by reading profiles of four experienced lawyers who are dedicated to serving their clients. Another feature looks at the growth strategies of South Florida law firms, and why several national firms are expanding their networks with new offices in the region.

Our Midyear Edition also features our “Class of 2016” of Top Up and Comers who move into our Top Lawyers category, as well as a salute to our region’s leaders in providing pro bono services to those who need legal assistance in our community.

In addition, we hope you enjoy reading the articles written by leading professionals on various aspects of law, finance and business in our Professional Forum, as well as in-depth Profiles of a select group of our top professionals.

With our Midyear, Financial and Annual Editions, South Florida Legal Guide is dedicated to providing our readers with timely and helpful information in the fields of law, accounting, litigation support, and banking services. Thank you to our contributors, advertisers and sponsors for your continued support over the past 17 years.
