Peter Barnes Comments on OECD Pillar Two and the European Union in Law360
European policy observers will continue to wait for approval of a 15% minimum corporate tax during the second half of 2022 after the European Union failed to achieve unanimous agreement on the measure, key to a sweeping global tax revamp.
. . .

Among those is Peter Barnes, former senior tax counsel at General Electric and now Of Counsel at Caplin & Drysdale.
"I think on the U.S. side, there will be strong momentum to adopt Pillar Two if there's a critical mass in the rest of the world," Barnes said.
