US: Namorato nominated to be assistant attorney general for tax in DoJ

President Obama has nominated Cono Namorato for the post of assistant attorney general for the tax division of the US Department of Justice.

Namorato works for Caplin & Drysdale, where he has been since 1978 apart from a two-year spell as acting deputy commissioner for certain designated matters and as director of the Office of Professional Responsibility for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) between 2004 and 2006.

Before starting at Caplin & Drysdale, Namorato had worked in several positions at the tax division of the Department of Justice – including deputy assistant attorney general. He started his career in 1963 as a special agent for the IRS’s criminal investigation division in Brooklyn, New York.

Namorato’s nomination will have to receive the Senate’s approval before he can take up his post. He will replace Kathryn Keneally, who joined DLA Piper in September 2014.
