DLA Piper creates US tax desk in London
DLA Piper has created a new US tax desk in London to support their US/EMEA client base. They have relocated international tax partner Michael Lebovitz from Los Angeles to London. Lebovitz will be a real-time resource for US tax issues arising in the region. Before relocating to London, Lebovitz led DLA's tax practice in Los Angeles which was named that city's tax practice of the year in International Tax Review's 2011 Americas Tax Awards. Transfer pricing adviser Mike Patton will assume leadership responsibility for the firm's LA tax practice.
