Bassett’s arrival bolsters Morgan Lewis recent snagging tax specialist like Bill Colgin, who moved from Fenwick & West to Morgan Lewis.

Bassett has 12 years experience in international tax planning that includes structuring mergers and acquisitions, internal restructuring, join ventures, internal and external financings, transfer pricing matters and intellectual property. He also represents clients in audits and appeals before the IRS. “Bart will be a strong addition to a national practice that combines attorneys close to government officials and tax policy decisions on the East Coast, with growing consulting and controversy capabilities on the West Coast,” said Miriam Fisher, head of the firm’s tax controversy practice and a former Justice Department official.
