The Daily Journal, California’s leading legal industry newspaper, named Hone Maxwell LLP to its 2022 Top Boutique Law Firms list. In a profile about the firm published on Oct. 17, 2022, the Daily Journal lauded HMLLP for its recent growth, especially in international tax law. Managing Partner Josh Maxwell was described in the profile as the “go-to expert on international tax difficulties in Asia, Mexico and elsewhere.”
In an interview, Josh told a reporter about a time a fellow diner at a Rosarito, Mexico restaurant introduced herself after overhearing him talk about amnesty programs with a potential client. The woman hired HMLLP to help her untangle some bad foreign tax reporting and compliance advice she received. She was facing a $500,000 penalty for unreported foreign taxes, and the HMLLP team saved her nearly $400,000 of that.
“I think that’s really our best service when we’re helping these people with unreported foreign assets or even just with international consulting in general,” Josh told the newspaper. “There’s two parts to this type of practice. There’s the legal advice and accounting advice, but at the end of the day all this must be on a tax return and that’s the piece a lot of law firms don’t address, or they don’t understand the forms.”
