Since then he has assisted several hundred US clients to legally and permanently leave the US tax system. In addition, by working with their existing trusted advisors he has assisted many other American clients to establish their personal and family "Backup Plans". Along with the option of being able to leave the US tax system, these Backup Plans provide clients with the tools to proactively deal with any possible negative events that may occur in their lives. Since the beginning of his career, Mr. Lesperance has also travelled extensively, including throughout the Middle and Far East, where he has assisted many clients to establish Backup Plans that address issues unique to their regions. His "Global & Local" approach to planning is reflected in the fact that he has twice executed Backup Plans for himself and his family.
