Today, with the globalization campaign taking effect, countries are beginning to come together and to coordinate in many matters previously considered to be individual. Tax law is one such area that countries are cooperating in world over. Cone Marshall is a leading firm in the area of tax.
The shining light in the company is due to the efforts of its founder Geoffrey Cone and his associate Karen Marshall. The company’s specialization in international tax law and trust planning is lucrative in a time when the countries of the world are coming together to view issues as common challenges.

The counseling Cone Marshall engages in and the litigation prowess the firm reflects, all help in bolstering the company to higher heights in the legal fraternity in New Zealand and the world.
Cone Marshall operates in New Zealand, a tax transparency nation. Many have believed, and wrongly so, that New Zealand is a tax haven: where companies can operate without paying tax. In most cases tax havens have the tendency to charge minimal taxes.
Tax havens are also not so tax transparent and therefore cannot cooperate with other countries in the international exchange of information. This exchange of information helps in reducing money laundering. If for instance you deposit a large amount of money in a New Zealand bank from say Britain, New Zealand tax transparency will inquire from Britain the source of the money.
Cone Marshall provides services to a number of people like family advisors, Trustees and private banks to mention but a few. This limited liability company provides full tax, succession and structuring advice. Cone Marshall began its operations in 1999 and continues to grow strong both locally and among other international firms dealing in tax. Cone Marshall was started by Karen Marshall together with Geoffrey Cone. Like Karen, Cone studied in Otago University and later got his post graduate diploma. He specialized in Tax law and trusts.
Karen has worked at Cone Marshall for over a decade now. She graduated with a law degree from Otago University and stayed in London for a period of 10 years: practicing law within the commercial department of a large London firm.
According to Crunchbase, she has been Cone Marshall’s principal since early 2006. In her capacity at Corm Marshall, she advised statutory trustee firms on trustee liabilities and powers. She has worked with charitable trust trustees advising them on beneficiary claims. Her experience in management of trusts continues to grow so much that she now enjoys the position of trust director.
