January 04, 2016

WASHINGTON, DC, January 4, 2016: Peter M. Daub, who for decades has advised on US and international tax planning for multinational clients, is joining Morgan Lewis as a partner in the firm’s Washington, DC, office. Mr. Daub was previously a member of another global law firm’s tax group.

For 30 years, Mr. Daub has assisted US-based clients in deferral structures and repatriation foreign tax credit planning and providing tax advice on financial and currency transactions. He works with companies outside the United States to structure their US operations and enhance US tax treaty benefits, and he advises both US and international clients on the tax aspects of major corporate restructurings. Additionally, he works to establish, maintain, and unwind cross-border private equity and other fund structures.

“Peter has a unique set of talents and experience that ideally complements our services to clients that have interests within the United States and elsewhere in the world,” said Firm Chair Jami McKeon. “His detailed understanding of US international tax provisions will benefit clients in a wide variety of industries.

Mr. Daub—a former associate international tax counsel at the US Department of Treasury—advises companies in virtually all major industries, including technology, consumer products, aerospace, telecom, banking, finance, insurance, defense, and energy. Chambers Global and other publications have ranked him highly for many years.

“As we move into a period of anticipated tax reform that could fundamentally shift the international tax landscape for multinational corporations, we welcome the addition of Peter to our team,” said Barton Bassett, the leader of Morgan Lewis’s tax practice. “Peter’s experience in international planning and at the Treasury Department will further strengthen our ability to represent clients in the US tax reform process, and assist multinational companies as they restructure their operations in response to those changes.”

“I am delighted to join Morgan Lewis,” said Mr. Daub.  “The firm already has a very strong tax team that has for many years effectively served the transactional needs of its corporate clients. The opportunity to join its tax lawyers in building the pre-eminent destination tax practice is very exciting.”
