Daniel Nelson joins Morgan Lewis tax team as part of team move from Bingham
Morgan Lewis today announced the arrival of a cross-practice team of lawyers—an energy regulatory attorney, a private equity and investment funds attorney, a tax attorney, and a securities and general corporate attorney—who will work together to serve the needs of energy sector participants, private investment funds, and global institutional investors that focus on investments in energy, infrastructure, and other real assets. The group, which joined from Bingham, includes Mark Williams, a partner in the Energy Practice in Washington, D.C.; Daniel Nelson, a partner in the Tax Practice in Boston; Gerald Kehoe, a partner in the Business and Finance Practice’s Private Investment Funds group in Boston; and Ann Chamberlain, of counsel in the Business and Finance Practice in New York.
The team has considerable experience advising clients that concentrate on energy and infrastructure on regulatory matters, fund formation, energy-sector mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures, project finance investments, tax issues and an array of transactional and securities matters. Their arrival deepens Morgan Lewis’s existing energy and infrastructure capabilities across practices.
“This talented group of lawyers will enable us to serve even better our growing list of clients focusing on energy and infrastructure investments around the world,” said Firm Chair Francis M. Milone.
“The ability to leverage knowledge and experience across practices sets us apart and enables us to address the constantly evolving legal demands of our clients investing in energy and infrastructure,” said Kathryn Sutton, co-leader of Morgan Lewis’s Energy Industry Practice. “The addition of this multi-disciplined team deepens our bench in numerous areas of law related to the energy industry,” she added.
Mr. Nelson devotes a significant portion of his practice to advising global institutional investors, including investment managers for some of the world’s largest pension funds, regarding investments in real estate, infrastructure projects, and other real assets. He also advises sponsors regarding fund formation transactions, co-investment arrangements, and joint ventures involving pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, and other institutional investors. In addition to his work with institutional investors and sponsors, Mr. Nelson also maintains a broad-based transactional tax practice. He advises on a wide variety of tax matters in transactional settings, including project finance transactions and other transactions in the energy sector, transactions involving U.S. real estate and REITs, and tax planning for cross-border transactions.
