Diego Quiñones is currently reading for a Dphil in Law under the supervision of Professor Judith Freedman. His thesis involves empirical, mixed-methods, research on the determinants of corporate tax behaviour in large corporations in the UK and in Colombia and the relationship between these determinants and the paradigm of Co-Operative tax compliance.

Diego has an LLM in International Taxation from New York University Law School, where he was a Vanderbilt Scholar, and an APCLB from New York University’s Law School and New York University's Stern School of Business (Vogelstein Scholar). Prior to this, he obtained a Specialization in Tax Law from Universidad del Rosario, an LLB (Cum Laude) from Universidad de los Andes (Colombia), a BSc in Political Science, and a Minor in Asian Studies from the same university.

Diego is a Partner at Quiñones Cruz Abogados, one of the leading tax law firms in Colombia, where his work focuses on tax litigation (direct and indirect tax, constitutional tax law, tax penalties and transfer pricing), tax policy, tax planning and tax advisory. Before this, Diego also worked as a Political Consultant for a Colombian Political Marketing firm, interned in a corporate law firm in Shanghai, and as a Roman Law teaching assistant at Universidad de los Andes.

In addition to his law practice, Diego is actively involved in tax research, having published on international tax and Colombian tax issues. Diego is a member of IFA and of ICDT, where he has been appointed to the Academic Commission and the Journal Editorial Board. He is also a researcher in the DeSTaT Project led by the University of Oslo, and  has taught a variety of graduate tax law courses at Universidad del Rosario, Universidad del Externado, Pontificia Universidad Bolivariana, and Universidad de los Andes.
