John J. Cross 3d, a tax partner with Hawkins, Delafield& Wood here, is taking over the chairmanship of the American Bar Association's tax-exempt financing committee for the next two years as of May 13, 2003. Cross joined Hawkins in 1994 after three years as counsel to the assistant chief counsel for financial institutions and products at the Internal Revenue Service, and he has broad tax-exempt experience from his work both with the government and in private practice. In private practice, Cross has worked on several favorable IRS private-letter rulings, including the tax aspects of a seven billion dollar deal in 1998 in which a state governmental authority acquired a private utility and a ruling involving a long-term qualified private management contract affecting over 6.5 dollar billion in tax-exempt bonds.
