Latham & Watkins has ramped up its Washington DC tax expertise with the hire of the deputy chief counsel of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Nicholas DeNovio, a specialist in international tax matters related to cross-border M&A, joint venture transactions and international group restructuring, will join the firm’s Washington DC office as a partner in the tax department from September 12.
The appointment follows DeNovio’s decision last week to stand down as the deputy chief counsel (technical) of the IRS, a position he had held since January 2004.
As part of this role, DeNovio was responsible for the substantive tax aspects and administrative guidance process of the Office of Chief Counsel, including published guidance such as regulations and revenue rulings.
He joined the IRS in December 2002 as senior counsel to the Office of Chief Counsel on tax shelter initiatives, and was promoted to the role of deputy chief counsel (technical) – the IRS’ leading technical tax lawyer – in 2004.
