Linklaters takes Dewey & LeBoeuf partners

Linklaters strengthened its US tax practice with the addition of two new partners today.

Gordon Warnke, who chaired the tax practice of Dewey & LeBoeuf, and Joseph Pari, another partner at the same firm , have extensive experience which includes advising on the federal income tax aspects of domestic and international mergers, acquisitions, spin-offs and other divestitures.

Recent transactions they have worked on include: MetLife’s purchase of American Life Insurance Company from AIG; EnCana’s $25 billion spinoff of Cenovus Energy; The Walt Disney Company’s $4 billion acquisition of Marvel Entertainment and the disposal by General Electric and NBC Universal of an interest in the Sundance Channel.

Warnke will head Linklaters’ New York tax practice while Pari will be based in Washington DC.
