Skadden promotes two attorneys to Counsel

Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom has promoted two tax attorneys to the position of Counsel.

The all-equity partnership has promoted Alex Jupp in London, while David Foster moves up in the Washington, DC office.

Jupp’s practice covers a broad range of UK and cross-border tax matters, with a particular focus on the tax aspects of corporate acquisitions and financings, restructurings, relocations, employee incentives, and asset management structures and related activities.

Foster represents clients in all stages of tax controversies, from examinations and administrative appeals through trial to appellate proceedings in the courts of appeal and US Supreme Court.

Before joining Skadden, Foster served as a law clerk to Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy of the US Supreme Court, and to Judge Alex Kozinski of the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
