Miller & Chevalier has added three attorneys to its Washington office, the firm announced this week.
Kevin Downing, formerly with the Department of Justice’s Tax Division, and Barbara Linney, formerly a partner at Blank Rome, join the firm as members. Kuang Chiang, formerly a licensing examining officer at the Office of Foreign Assets Control, joins as an associate.
Downing, who starts with the firm’s criminal tax practice June 11, spent 15 years as a federal prosecutor and eight of those as senior litigation counsel. He led the investigations and prosecutions into the UBS offshore banking and KPMG tax shelter cases.
Linney, who joins as a member of the export controls and economic sanctions practice, focuses her practice on international trade and regulatory issues, export controls, international sanctions and defense trade, among others. In an email to Legal Times, Linney said that her work would remain largely unchanged.
“My practice will continue to focus on representing clients before various federal agencies, including the U.S. Departments of Commerce, Defense, and State, as well as the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS),” Linney wrote.
