Real estate developer sues offshore bankers for ‘hundreds of millions of dollars’ over failed tax planning scheme

A billionaire real estate developer who pleaded guilty last year to willfully filing a false tax return in the United States has filed a civil complaint against his offshore bankers and tax planners in which he claims he was unknowingly drawn into illegal activity.Igor Olenicoff's attorney, William J. King, of Horizon Law Group LLP, in California, told OffshoreAlert that the civil action against UBS AG, Neue Bank, and others in Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Denmark, Florida and Texas involved much more than the limited criminal activity that his client previously admitted and said the allegations contained in the civil complaint were "not inconsistent" with his plea agreement in the criminal case, which required Olenicoff to accept full responsibility for his actions.
