Danilack joins the IRS from the Washington office of tax boutique Burt, Staples and Maner. The 15-lawyer firm also has an office in London, with a roster of clients including Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Euroclear, and UBS.
Prior to joining the firm, Danilack worked as a principal at Deloitte Tax, focusing on cross-border tax matters.
