Frank L. Brunetti Addresses the United Nations Committee of Experts
Frank Brunetti, Chair of the firm’s Tax, Trusts and Estates Group, addressed the United Nations Committee of Experts on International Cooperation in Tax Matters in Geneva, Switzerland. Mr. Brunetti is an Observer member of the Committee, where his work with other members of the Committee is focused on encouraging international cooperation in tax matters. This year, Mr. Brunetti addressed the Committee with regard to the revision of the United Nations Manual for the Negotiation of Bilateral Tax Treaties between Developed and Developing Countries. Once revised, the Manual will result in a tool that will teach administrators in developing countries how to negotiate a tax treaty, how to interpret the treaty and how to manage their tax administration. As Coordinator of the working group in charge of updating the Manual, Mr. Brunetti has been working closely with the members of the Group, consisting of professors for California State University at Sacramento and William and Mary as well as experts from New Zealand, Mexico, Germany, Barbados and Aruba.
