Robles & Robles also helps on the incorporation and maintenance of a client’s Private Interest Foundation. Our mission is to assist in the structuring of a plan for the adequate estate planning and administration of our client’s personal estate, which shall be elaborated in full coordination with the client, in order to satisfy his planned purposes and needs during the life and/or after the death of the client.

The Private Interest Foundation is an administrative tool to manage and protect a client’s personal estate, which satisfies the same purposes as a Trust, but with a more flexible, effective and less economic operation cost than a Trust.

Some of the most important features of foundations are:

  • Separation of the Foundation´s estate from that kept under the Founder´s name, and hence from the founder´s liabilities, or from the estate of any third party donating an asset to the Foundation.
  • Direct administration of the foundation by client´s personnel without the need of trustee entities such as banks.
  • Option to continue administering the client’s estate after his death on behalf of beneficiaries.
  • With this legal entity in place upon the Founder’s death, the beneficiaries (equivalent to a heir) will obtain direct access and control to the Foundation´s assets, without the need of a prior and lengthy probate proceeding,so the heirs being able to have control of the bank account, shares or properties in a matter of weeks instead of months or more than a year as it happens when a Probate Court Resolution is needed (this is the case for the assets that are on the deceased´s name – with or without a Will).
