Crowell & Moring adds two to Washington office

Crowell & Moring is strengthening its tax practice with the arrival of two tax controversy and litigation partners in Washington, DC. David Blair joins from Miller & Chevalier, while David Fischer joins from Cooley. The pair collectively bring more than half a century of litigation, trial and advisory experience with them.

Blair is a former trial attorney for the tax division of the US Department of Justice and has experience in handling tax litigation and controversy matters in the areas of transfer pricing, foreign tax credits, partnerships, tax treaties, and tax accounting issues, among others.

Fischer also has vast experience in representing Fortune 500 companies from a range of industries including semiconductor, software, petroleum, mining, automotive, and banking and finance. He has extensive experience of handling IRS alternative dispute resolution procedures and has worked on accelerated appeals and mediation matters before the IRS Appeals Office.

Like Blair, Fischer too is a transfer pricing expert, and at present is focusing on buy-in royalty payments in connection with cost-sharing arrangements and related issues.

Both men are active in pro-bono litigation.
