Blank Rome Expands Tax Group with Two Additions in New York


Blank Rome has added David J. Moise and Jill E. Misener to its Tax, Benefits and Private Client group in New York.

Moise joins the firm as a partner with more than 30 years of experience and a robust federal, state and local tax practice. Joining Blank Rome as of counsel, 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 J. Hoffman, Blank Rome’s chairman and managing partner. “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.”

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, and collection administrative appeals, installment agreements and offers in compromise.

Misener has also advised and represented clients residing outside the U.S. with tax issues and has guided numerous clients through the IRS’s various offshore voluntary disclosure programs.
