Caroline D. Ciraolo will present "Preserving Confidentiality in Cross Border Investigations," at the 37th Annual Cambridge International Symposium on Economic Crime
The focus for the 37th symposium is the shared responsibility borne by public and private bodies, across international borders, to fight economic crime. In particular, it will look at the flow of information between agencies and the business world, and how to tackle the issues that this presents. In addition to its keynote speeches and focal discussions each day, there are a host of alternative programmes, plenary sessions and workshops to enable you to share your knowledge, garner new skills, and build new connections.
Caroline D. Ciraolo will participate in the panel “Cooperation or Compulsion: The Emerging U.S. Experience with Voluntary and Involuntary Disclosures of Foreign Transactions,” at the 37th Annual Cambridge International Symposium on Economic Crime
In considering how to better discourage and control economic crime we examine the real threats facing our economies and, in particular, those who look after other people’s wealth not just from criminals and terrorists, but also indirectly as a result of law enforcement and regulatory intervention. We also context these risks and the responses not only in terms of the law, but also regulation and especially compliance practice.
Megan L. Brackney will participate in the panel "Recent Developments in Innocent Spouse Litigation," at the ABA Tax Section 2019 Fall Meeting
Relief from Joint and Several Liability is a complex area of tax practice. This panel covered recent developments in innocent spouse litigation and administrative procedures. We discussed administrative options for relief where there is no valid joint return. Over the past year innocent spouse litigation has touched on important issues including the limits of Tax Court jurisdiction and the proper scope and standard of review when 6015 relief is requested within a CDP appeal. The Taxpayer First Act introduces additional complexity and uncertainty.
