Hofstra Law alumnus Daniel A. Rosen ’96 recently joined Baker & McKenzie in the Global Tax Practice as a partner. He came to the firm from the Internal Revenue Service, Office of Chief Counsel, where he served as a special trial attorney.
“During his 16-year career with the IRS, Dan was responsible for litigating some of the largest and most complex cases before the United States Tax Court,” said Thomas Linguanti, chair of Baker & McKenzie’s North America Tax Practice, in a press release from the firm. “His significant trial experience and governmental insight will be invaluable to our clients.”
Rosen, who litigated dozens of cases during his 16 years with the IRS, worked closely with the U.S. Department of Justice, Tax Division, on several major cases, and advised IRS Large Business and International Division executives, managers and examiners on tax controversy matters, including settlement initiatives. He also has substantial knowledge of alternative dispute resolution processes and techniques.
He was a key participant in the drafting of published guidance and administrative directives involving judicial doctrines for the IRS Large Business and International Division. While at the IRS, Rosen was awarded the Treasury Legal Division Research and Writing Award, the National Outstanding Litigator Award, the National Litigation Team Award, and the Commissioner’s Award.
