Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP

New York, NY, USA


Erika Nijenhuis is a partner at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP in the New York office.  Her practice focuses on U.S. tax issues of financial institutions, financial products, and sovereigns. She regularly advises financial institutions and other domestic and foreign clients on issues relating to capital markets transactions, the development of new financial products, and inbound and outbound business operations.  She has been at the forefront of new developments in tax policy and financial products and is sought after to advise on the most important and complex tax matters. She is a strong advocate for the private sector, and her tax policy recommendations and representations of clients before the Department of the Treasury and the IRS have frequently led to, and shaped, new regulations and legislative changes.

Erika has been repeatedly recognized as a leader in her field.  In 2018 and 2014, she won the “Best in Tax” award at the Americas Women in Business Law Awards of Euromoney Legal Media Group and she was also named New York City Tax Law “Lawyer of the Year” by The Best Lawyers in America in 2017 and 2015.  Erika was formerly (2009) chair of the New York State Bar Association Tax Section.  She is a sought-after speaker at tax conferences and has published many articles on the taxation of financial transactions, many of which are among the leading articles on those topics.

Erika joined the firm in 1990 and became a partner in 1997.  She received an LL.M. in taxation from New York University in 1997, and a J.D. in 1987 and an undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania.
