Law360's Yvonne Juris Profiles Clark Armitage: Caplin & Drysdale Picks Transfer Pricing Pro As New President
Clark Armitage, a transfer pricing expert and member of Caplin & Drysdale’s international tax and tax controversy groups has been promoted to president, the firm recently announced.
. . .
Armitage told Law360 Wednesday that he would strive to retain the original vision of firm founder Mortimer Caplin, a former Internal Revenue Service commissioner who served under President John F. Kennedy.
. . .
Armitage praised Caplin & Drysdale for its inverted-pyramid structure, with members outnumbering associates in order to have counsel serve more as advisers than managers for large litigation or deal projects, adding that members “strive to preserve that difference.”
As Armitage takes the helm, transfer pricing for cross-border deals is expected to continue to be an area of interest for clients as a result of recent guidance released by the U.S. Department of the Treasury for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act , he said.
