Of Counsel at Steptoe & Johnson LLP
Cameron Arterton focuses her practice on helping clients resolve tax policy issues, both legislatively and through the administrative guidance process. She brings a unique combination of substantive tax knowledge across a broad range of issues with an insider’s understanding of tax policy issues, having previously worked in senior counsel roles at the US Department of the Treasury and on Capitol Hill.
Prior to joining Steptoe she spent four years in the Treasury Department’s Office of Tax Policy, most recently as Deputy Tax Legislative Counsel. In that role, she oversaw the development and review of tax regulations and guidance in the areas of the Affordable Care Act, energy, excise taxes, insurance, financial products, tax-exempt bonds, tax accounting issues, and Indian tribal taxation. Ms. Arterton also assisted with the development of the “Greenbook” — the Obama Administration’s revenue proposals for the annual budget.
Ms. Arterton also has experience working on Capitol Hill, having spent four years as Ways & Means Counsel for Rep. Lloyd Doggett, a senior member of the House tax-writing committee. In that role, she was the lead staffer on tax, budget, and trade issues. Additionally, she worked in the office of Senator Joseph Lieberman prior to law school.
