  • The loss of deemed domicile
  • Estate and succession planning depending on whether he survived the loss of deemed domicile or not
  • The impact of his current and future status on existing trusts for other members of the family
  • Liaising with US advisors to exploit the individual’s status in new planning to benefit US citizen members of his family
