Alan I. Appel has joined New York Law School as Professor of Law and director of a new international tax program, "an initiative that will build bridges to the practice of international tax law for the Law School’s J.D. and LL.M. students." From the press release:
Appel, who was formerly counsel at Bryan Cave, has been teaching at NYLS as an adjunct professor for several years. At Bryan Cave, his practice focused on international and domestic tax planning involving taxation of mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, joint ventures, and limited liability companies, as well as tax controversy matters. Going forward, he will be a consultant to the firm on international tax matters. Appel started at NYLS on July 1, 2013.
"I am just delighted that Alan Appel is joining our full-time tax faculty. He is an outstanding tax lawyer and a gifted teacher,” said Ann F. Thomas, Professor and Director of the NYLS Graduate Tax Program. “With the increasing number of global businesses and families and the renewed focus of the IRS on cross-border tax issues, international tax practice is expanding in both the private and public sectors in New York. The international tax program that Alan is creating will help our J.D. and LL.M. students build careers in this exciting field."
