Pritzer's Offshore Companies

Professor Barbara McQuade, '91"The big difference between a trust and foreign company is, with a trust you're supposed to be able to trace who the beneficiaries of the trust are in a way that in a company you can't do. A trust generally does not give you liability or tax protection in the U.S. Once you have a separate foreign company, it's more difficult to know what you've done."

Professor Reuven Avi-Yonah, in a Chicago Tribune article about billionaire J.B. Pritzker's secret offshore holdings.
