We sat down for a coffee with Josh Maxwell, one of the founders of Hone Maxwell which is our newest corporate member. The purpose of the meeting was to get to know Josh and the company a little bit more. Josh founded the tax and accounting firm together with his partner Aubrey Hone in August 2012. John has a long career behind him within tax issues and has previously worked at some of the biggest firms such as KPMG. After a long time in the business the two founders saw a gap in the market, a need of a tax law practice that could not only provide excellent results but also greater personal connection to their clients. This was one of the reasons why they decided to start their own business. You can truly see the passion in Josh´s eyes when he speaks about the firm and the desire of making the clients satisfied. To cite Josh:
‘I’ll always answer the email, no matter if it is Sunday or in the middle of the night’.
Hone Maxwell serves the full spectrum of tax issues. Josh explains that the market is growing, especially the international market, and nowadays he is travelling a lot outside of the US to educate and hold presentations about tax issues to foreign companies wanting to invest in the US. His last business trip was to Hong Kong, which according to him is one of the biggest growing markets. Hone Maxwell is growing rapidly and today the company has two offices, one in San Diego and one in San Francisco, but they are currently looking for a bigger office in the San Diego area.
Josh emphasizes the importance of educating companies and businesses about tax issues and new regulations, especially when it comes to foreign companies that want to establish their business in the US. We are very happy to have Hone Maxwell as our corporate member and we are convinced that the company will be a great partner for our members who need help or guidance with tax issues, how to set up their businesses correct or just need someone to ask for advice.
Once again, a warm welcome Hone Maxwell LLP!
