PHILADELPHIA (September 2016) – Kevin F. Sweeney, senior counsel with Chamberlain Hrdlicka, one of the nation’s most profitable mid-size law firms, will address Employment Taxes and Criminal Prosecutions during the American Bar Association’s fall meeting on Sept. 30 in Boston.
An experienced tax and white-collar criminal defense attorney, Sweeney will discuss federal employee taxes and the ways an examination of those taxes may result in criminal proceedings.
The three-day meeting held in Boston, Mass. at the Westin Waterfront from Sept. 29 to Oct. 1 is sponsored by the ABA Section of Taxation and the Trust and Estate Law Division of the ABA Section of Real Property, Trust and Estate Law. Attorneys will have the opportunity to network with leaders in tax practice and to earn CLE and ethics credits. Over the course of the weekend, the speakers and attendees will be discussing the latest federal tax policies, initiatives, regulations, legislative forecasts and planning ideas.
Prior to joining Chamberlain Hrdlicka, Sweeney worked for the U.S. Department of Justice, Tax Division as a federal tax prosecutor, where he led many of its most successful tax cases, including offshore banking cases against prominent Swiss banks BSI SA, Union Bancaire Privée (UBP) SA, and Edmond de Rothschild SA. During his tenure, he investigated and litigated dozens of federal white-collar criminal cases including tax evasion, tax preparer, employment tax, FBAR, money laundering, currency structuring, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), and other financial fraud matters.
