Introducing Guest Blogger Andrew Blair-Stanek
I’m delighted to introduce my colleague Professor Andrew Blair-Stanek who will be guest blogging with us. Professor Blair-Stanek’s research and teaching interest is tax law. He draws from non-tax scholarship and case law to improve and to better understand tax law. Prior to joining the University of Maryland Carey Law faculty, Professor Blair-Stanek practiced tax law at McDermott, Will & Emery, LLP in Washington, DC. His practice included international tax planning, cross-border mergers, bankruptcy taxation, and real estate investment trust formation. Prior to practice, he clerked in Baltimore for the Hon. Paul V. Niemeyer, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
Professor Blair-Stanek received his undergraduate degree in mathematics, summa cum laude, from Princeton University, and his JD from Yale Law School, where he was on the Yale Law Journal. Before attending law school, he worked as a software design engineer for Microsoft Corporation and is the inventor of U.S. Patents 7,617,204 and 7,580,951.
