Bingham partner nominated to US Tax Court
Ronald Buch, a tax controversy partner at Bingham McCutchen in Washington, DC, has been nominated by President Obama as a judge of the US Tax Court. He has been with his firm since 2009, when it merged with his old practice of McKee Nelson, which he joined in 2001. Before private practice, he was an attorney in the office of the IRS chief counsel.
The nomination needs to be confirmed by the Senate Finance Committee before the new judge can take his seat.
