December 11, 2017

During the week of December 10th, Caplin & Drysdale member Scott D. Michel will be in Zagreb, Croatia in connection with Caplin & Drysdale’s participation in the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative. Mr. Michel, along with fellow Caplin & Drysdale members Cono R. Namorato and Mark E. Matthews, have been mentoring officials from the Croatian Ministry of Finance on the organization and implementation of various tax enforcement initiatives in that country. Caplin & Drysdale’s tax team will be meeting with officials from Croatia’s Tax Administration Service and International Cooperation Service on information exchange issues; the Tax Administration Managers to discuss the country’s unit investigating complicated international transactions; officials in the Ministry of Finance unit that combats irregularities and fraud; lawyers in the Croatian State Attorney’s Office who fight tax fraud and other financial fraud; Croatian customs officials and investigators from a special Interior Ministry unit fighting corruption; and members of the Croatian Bar Association to address cooperation with the private bar. This is all part of Caplin & Drysdale’s commitment to the Rule of Law Initiative and to the promotion of better tax administration worldwide.
