WASHINGTON, DC—December 19, 2013:  Caplin & Drysdale is pleased to announce that the 2014 edition of Tax Directors Handbook recommends the firm as a leading tax law firm for international tax and for domestic tax on the East Coast.  Scott D. Michel, Caplin & Drysdale's President, noted "As the domestic and global tax environments become increasingly challenging to navigate, we take pride in the fact that tax directors, in-house counsel, and wealthy individuals and their advisors – in the United States and abroad – turn to us when they need guidance and comprehensive solutions to their business and personal tax issues." Attorneys from the firm's New York City and Washington, D.C., offices were also recommended for their outstanding work in the tax law arena. 


Excerpts from the publication state:

"Caplin & Drysdale's ‘outstanding' tax practice is ‘very responsive' and ‘timely'. The five partner international team was strengthened by the arrival of Elan Keller to the New York office. Keller was previously managing director and tax director of Macquarie Holdings. Senior counsel Felix Laughlin joined the Washington DC office in 2012 from Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP. David Rosenbloom is very highly regarded and advises multinational corporations and financial institutions on tax matters in the US, Brazil, Australia and throughout Europe. Patricia Lewis is recognized for her strength in transfer pricing matters. Scott Michel and Cono Namorato have considerable experience in matters relating to US taxpayers with undisclosed offshore accounts. Lucy Lee left the firm to work as international tax counsel at GE."

"‘The level of service is outstanding' at Caplin & Drysdale. The firm is recognized for its clear strength in tax controversy and its exempt organizations group. Predominantly based in Washington DC, the firm is also present in New York, where the ‘very experienced' Mark Allison is the key partner. The team was recently strengthened with the addition of Elan Keller, former tax director of Macquarie Holdings, in September 2012. In Washington DC, David Rosenbloom has considerable experience in international tax planning and controversies. The firm further strengthened its bench in Washington DC in 2012 with the addition of Mark Matthews from Morgan Lewis and senior counsel Felix Laughlin from Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP. Marcus Owens, Douglas Varley, Diara Holmes, Michael Durham and William Klimon are the names to note for tax-exempt work."
