So, an American lawyer cleans out his business, ditches his partner, and runs. He needs a tropical location because of health reasons. He wants to set up a new law business, as law remains his life. Where would he go to remain protected from the American authorities?
I originally had him "relocating" to the Bahamas and/or Cayman Islands. Both territories, however, are English protectorates, subject to US-UK jurisdiction. Plus, a non-citizen must first pass a criminal background check before he can work or set up shop in the Cayman Islands. New Guinea had occurred to me, but it might be too remote for this character to consider as a viable spot for his law practice. Any other suggestions?
