Baker Botts has added an international tax lawyer to the Washington and New York offices. Don Lonczak has joined the firm as partner in the tax and corporate practices.
Lonczak focuses his practice on 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 has experience counseling clients on tax matters associated with cross border transactions. Previously, Lonczak was a partner in Shearman & Sterling’s tax group. It is the second lateral move to Baker Bott’s Washington office this week after energy partner Jay Ryan joined on Monday.
