Mr Moise joins the firm as a partner with over 30 years of experience, whilst joining Blank Rome as of counsel, Ms Misener also has significant experience in tax procedure and controversy. Both come to Blank Rome from Withers Bergman.

“We’re thrilled that David and Jill have joined Blank Rome,” said Alan Hoffman, chairman and managing partner of the firm. “David’s team is well-known for its straightforward and honest approach to tax controversy. I know that our clients will appreciate David’s pragmatism as well as his understanding of the risks and rewards associated with our clients’ most sensitive tax issues.”

Mr Moise focuses on federal, state, and local tax examinations, appeals, and litigation matters, as well as federal and multi-state voluntary disclosures. He also has significant experience with tax collection procedures, including tax liens and levies, as well as collection administrative appeals, installment agreements, and offers in compromise.

Further, he has extensive capabilities with regards to various treaty issues, such as disputes between the United States and the United Kingdom, resolving key issues and working with Competent Authority to avoid duplicative taxes.

“We’re excited to join Blank Rome,” said Mr Moise. “Blank Rome has a terrific, national platform that will enable us to expand upon the work we do and the clients we serve, particularly as it relates to partnership and corporate controversy matters. With offices across the country and a wide range of practices that are challenged by tax issues, we’re eager to begin collaborating with our new colleagues at Blank Rome.”

Ms Misener represents high net worth individuals and entities before federal and state tax authorities in controversy resolution matters, bringing her experience in examinations, administrative appeals, voluntary disclosures, and collection matters with her to Blank Rome.

Ms Misener has also advised and represented clients residing outside the United States with US tax issues, and has guided numerous clients through the IRS’s various offshore voluntary disclosure programs.

“David and Jill will be great additions to the practice as they are respected attorneys who are extremely well-versed in tax law at both the federal and state levels,” further commented Cory Jacobs, chair of Blank Rome's tax, benefits, and private client group. “On a daily basis, David and Jill handle tax issues that require interface with the IRS, and they know federal procedures inside and out. With tax reform forthcoming, David and Jill are well-positioned to help our clients navigate any future changes to US tax policy.”
