Daily Business Review Discusses Opening of Law Offices of Jeffrey A. Neiman

John Pacenti’s Inside Track blog at the Daily Business Review featured a write- up on the departure of Mr. Neiman from the United States Attorney’s Office.   Pacenti wrote, in part:

Federal prosecutor and tax law specialist Jeffrey Neiman is leaving at the end of the month for private practice.

Neiman has been an important player in the Justice Department’s war against offshore tax havens in recent years. He prosecuted UBS whistle-blower Bradley Birkenfeld and UBS clients charged with hiding assets with help from the leading Swiss bank.

He also was the lead prosecutor in the case against father-and-son developers Mauricio Cohen Assor and Leon Cohen Levy, who were sentenced last month to 10 years in prison.

For his work, Neiman received the Attorney General’s John Marshall Award last year for outstanding litigation work and the Internal Revenue Service Commissioner’s Award.

Neiman will hang his shingle as a solo practitioner in Fort Lauderdale on April 1 and share space with defense attorneys Fred Haddad and Bruce Zimet.

The prolific Neiman worked in the USAO’s Fort Lauderdale office for three years after doing a six-year stint in the Justice Department’s criminal tax division.

“You get to the point in your career where you look for other challenges,” he said. “My experience with dealing with the offshore tax evasion has positioned me well.”
