International law firm Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP announced today that Andrew Morris has joined the Firm as a partner in the global Tax practice, based in Weil’s New York office.
“A recognized leader in the private investment fund taxation area, whose tax knowledge is broad-based and includes significant private and public M&A expertise, Andrew will be an outstanding addition to our premier Tax team,” said Weil Executive Partner Barry Wolf. “In addition to having advised on some of the largest and most complex transactions in the past decade, he shares our Firm’s commitment to collaboration and excellent client service.”
