Conversation Series with Ken Kies '77
April 8, 2013 | 12:10-1:15 PM | The Barrister Club
This is an invitation-only event.
Kenneth J. (Ken) Kies is Managing Director of the Federal Policy Group, LLC. The Federal Policy Group provides sophisticated strategic and technical tax advice on tax policy matters before the Congress, the U.S. Treasury Department, the Internal Revenue Service, and the OECD.
Mr. Kies has delivered significant legislative and regulatory results for his clients, which include major corporations, trade associations, and coalitions of companies with common objectives. Mr. Kies has led coalition efforts to enact legislation responding to the World Trade Organization's ruling against U.S. foreign sales corporation benefits, to avert enactment of broad "corporate tax shelter" legislation that would have an adverse impact on legitimate business transactions, and to reverse Treasury regulations targeting "hybrid" arrangements of U.S. multinational corporations, among other projects.
Prior to the acquisition of the Federal Policy Group by Clark Consulting in February 2002, Mr. Kies was Co-Managing Partner of the Washington National Tax Services office of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.
