Steptoe expands tax group and private client team in New York


Steptoe & Johnson has appointed Zvi Hahn to the firm’s Tax Group as a partner. Hahn’s arrival continues the expansion of Steptoe’s private client practice in New York which welcomed partner Beth Tractenberg and of counsel Jasmine Campirides in 2015.

Hahn has a broad tax practice covering international tax planning for US and foreign corporations and individuals, international financing and derivative transactions, financial instruments, Subpart F and passive foreign investment company issues and US real estate investments. Hahn has advised multinational groups with respect to structuring and restructuring of their international operations and with respect to cross-border mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and financing transactions. He has also advised numerous investment funds and hedge funds in connection with various tax matters relating to their formation, operations and investment and trading activities.
In addition, Hahn has significant experience representing high net worth individuals and families with respect to international tax planning, including immigration to, or expatriation from, the United States.  At Steptoe, he will join a private client team whose clients include royal families, private equity and hedge fund managers, and some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs and business owners.  He will also be reuniting with Tractenberg, with whom he previously worked at another firm.
“Zvi is a versatile tax planning practitioner with an entrepreneurial bent who adds an important depth to our Tax Group in New York,” says Steptoe Chair Phil West. “The arrival of Zvi creates synergies with our trusts and estates practice, and expands the capabilities we offer our corporate, real estate and regulatory clients.”
Hahn commented:  “Steptoe’s esteemed Tax Group, which consistently receives top rankings in the legal directories, provides me with a platform of deep expertise and breadth to grow my practice.  Plus, I’m really looking forward to working with Beth again in representing high net worth individuals with their personal and business legal needs.
