Mayer Brown continues to strengthen its transactional tax planning capabilities with the arrival of Dan Kiely, who joins the firm as a partner in the Tax Transactions & Consulting practice in New York. Mr. Kiely was previously the senior vice president and chief tax officer at OneMain Financial.

“Dan’s deep understanding of asset finance, leasing and related tax issues allows him to provide integrated corporate and tax solutions to our clients across multiple disciplines and geographies,” said Jason Bazar, the co-leader of Mayer Brown’s Tax Transactions & Consulting practice. “We are delighted to welcome Dan as we continue to expand our global tax capabilities, specifically across our renewable energy, infrastructure, real estate and securitization practice areas.”

Mr. Kiely has extensive experience across a wide range of federal income tax matters, with a particular focus on international and domestic asset and finance transactions, including leasing, project finance, infrastructure, syndications, asset-backed securitizations and M&A transactions.

“As a long-time client, Mayer Brown’s well-earned reputation for providing sophisticated and complex counsel across a broad range of tax transactions were significant factors in my decision to join the firm,” said Mr. Kiely. “I believe my background, knowledge and experience in leasing will enhance the firm’s efforts to maintain its high standards of excellence for technical expertise and client service across its practices, specifically renewable energy, infrastructure, real estate and securitization.”

“Dan is well-known and highly regarded in the tax and asset finance community,” said Matthew Ingber, the managing partner of Mayer Brown’s New York office. “He brings an important dimension to our capabilities in the tax and leasing space in New York and elsewhere.”

In addition to Mr. Kiely, Mayer Brown’s Tax Transactions & Consulting practice has recently attracted top talent, including Andy Baik, who joined the practice as a partner in Northern California. These lateral additions signify the continued advancement of Mayer Brown’s commitment to build out its tax capabilities.
