Leading International Tax Lawyer

Don J. Lonczak Joins Baker Botts L.L.P.

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 9, 2013 -- Leading international tax lawyer Don J. Lonczak, who has substantial experience counseling clients on tax matters associated with cross border transactions, joined Baker Botts L.L.P. today as a partner in the firm’s Tax department. He will reside in the firm’s Washington and New York offices.


Lonczak has a broad-based, transaction-oriented practice that includes structuring and negotiating the tax aspects of domestic and international mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and corporate spin-offs, as well as of public and private financings and derivatives financial products. He regularly advises major corporate clients with respect to their internal tax planning strategies -- both domestic and cross-border, transfer pricing policies and tax controversy matters.


"Don is a valuable addition to our highly-respected, global tax team that provides our clients counsel on the most complex matters,” said Baker Botts Managing Partner Andrew Baker. “Don’s ability to navigate the tax aspects of cross-border transactions in regions around the world will enhance the service we provide our clients.”


Richard Husseini, chair of Baker Botts’ Tax department, said: “Don is recognized as a premier international tax lawyer involved in a wide array of transactional matters. He possesses the ideal experience to supplement our already strong tax group on domestic and international mergers and acquisitions and other financial ventures. A number of Baker Botts partners have worked with Don on matters during the past few years. He is a perfect fit for the firm and our clients on all fronts.” 


Lonczak will provide strong support for client teams from the firm’s Global Projects department. “Don’s joining our tax team will help us maintain a high level of service to our Global Projects clients, particularly on the international, cross-border transactional front,” said Global Projects Chair Jamie Baker. “We are pleased that he decided to join the firm.”


Prior to joining Baker Botts, Lonczak was a partner in Shearman & Sterling LLP’s tax group. He earned his law degree from Georgetown University and his LL.M. in Tax from New York University.
