Professor Blank's scholarship focuses on tax compliance, corporate taxation and tax policy. He will present his article What's Wrong With Shaming Corporate Tax Abuse, __ Tax L. Rev. __ (forthcoming, 2008), which examines the merits of applying shaming sanctions against corporations that pursue abusive tax shelters. For four years immediately before joining the NYU faculty, Blank was an associate at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, where he advised clients regarding tax aspects of complex public and private company mergers, spin-offs and hostile takeovers. Blank received his B.A., summa cum laude, from NYU, College of Arts and Science, his J.D., cum laude, from Harvard Law School and his LL.M (Taxation) from NYU School of Law.
