MIAMI – International law firm McDermott Will & Emery today announced the arrival of Steven Hadjilogiou as a partner in the Firm’s Tax Practice Group in the Miami office. Mr. Hadjilogiou will focus on tax planning with an emphasis on international tax planning.

Mr. Hadjilogiou joins McDermott from an AmLaw 100 firm where he represented various Fortune 500 companies, major privately-held businesses in their tax planning and supply chain projects and high net worth entrepreneurs with their personal tax and estate planning. He has experience in inbound and outbound transactional tax planning, transfer pricing, tax-related intellectual property matters, Subpart F, pre-immigration planning and foreign investment in US real property. Mr. Hadjilogiou is consistently recognized as a leading tax lawyer by Chambers USA.

“Steve has an outstanding reputation in the Miami area and his knowledge of the Florida market is an asset as we continue to expand our tax practice across the country,” said Lowell Yoder, global head of the firm’s Tax Practice.

“We have seen a growing demand from clients navigating complex international business taxation issues, and Steve’s experience and skills in this area will help ensure we continue to deliver tax advice to the standard of excellence to which our clients are accustomed,“ said Timothy Shuman, leader of US and International Tax.

Mr. Hadjilogiou received both his JD and LLM (Taxation) from the University of Florida. He writes and presents extensively on topics related to tax and is also an adjunct professor in the University of Miami School of Law’s Tax LLM program.

“McDermott’s Tax practice is widely respected, and this is an exciting opportunity to help expand into the Miami area,” said Mr. Hadjilogiou. “The recent tax reform makes McDermott’s unparalleled tax planning services more valuable than ever to companies operating across the United States and abroad.”
