Law360 launches tax news service
News organization Law360 is launching a new content area focusing on federal, state and local and international tax news.
Across the three coverage areas, Law360 Tax Authority will include 60 to 70 breaking news articles, news analysis pieces, news briefs, source documents and commentary every business day.
Law360’s daily newsletters reach more than 1.25 million legal professionals, business leaders and government officials. In 2014, the news outlet began publishing Tax Law360, which covers tax law in an email newsletter sent five days a week. Las360 Tax Authority will have three email newsletters.
Law360 Tax Authority is led by managing editor Chris DeZinno, who was formerly an editor at Thomson Reuters Tax and Accounting and a tax advisor for Intuit.
He joined Law360 in 2013 to develop the news agency’s Tax Law360 section and also served as Washington bureau chief from 2015 to 2016.
Deputy managing editor Gina Briggs was formerly a tax attorney in New York before becoming a tax editor at Thomson Reuters Tax and Accounting. She joined Law360 in 2017 to help create Law360 Tax Authority, with a focus on developing and overseeing state and local tax coverage.
One of its writers will be Maria Koklanaris, who has specialized in reporting on state and local tax issues for decades at major tax publications.
Prior to her stint as senior state tax reporter for Tax Analysts, where she gained a national following covering state tax policy issues and profiling leaders in the field, Koklanaris reported on business and other issues for The Washington Post and The Washington Times, among other publications.
