JTC has continued to bolster its proposition in the US and wider Americas markets with the appointment of Marcel Imery as Director of Business Development.
Based in JTC’s New York office, Imery provides structuring services to JTC’s private and corporate clients, with a particular remit to help drive growth across the US and Latin American (LatAm) markets.
With more than 30 years’ experience as an international tax, corporate and transactional attorney and as a trusted adviser to High-Net-Worth Individuals and c-level executives of Fortune 500 companies, Imery joins JTC having previously co-founded and co-manged a top-tier law firm in Venezuela. The firm merged in 2019 to create the largest law firm in the country. Marcel has particular expertise in advising LatAm families and business owners with corporate holding and asset protection structures.
A renowned lawyer recognised in key industry publications such as Best Lawyer, Chambers and the Legal 500, Imery has also founded, financed and scaled startups in Venezuela and Chile, awarded by Wayra and Startup Chile, two of Latam’s leading incubators. Fluent in Spanish and English, Imery gained an MBA from Hult International Business School and an LLM from Duke Law School.
Marina Cristiani, Head of JTC’s New York office, says: “The US and the wider Americas is a key growth market for us. With Latin America continuing to operate in a persistently challenging and complex environment, our expertise in the region means we are seeing rising demand for high quality cross-border structuring as clients seek out our sophisticated support. With Marcel’s experience in both the US and LatAm markets and his expertise and knowledge as an attorney in the international private client and corporate space, he will undoubtedly play a vital role in enabling us to realise our Americas growth strategy.”
