BakerHostetler adds tax partner in Atlanta

RELATED TOPICS​

International and domestic tax attorney Mark Lange has joined BakerHostetler as a partner in its tax group, becoming the first tax attorney in the firm’s Atlanta office.

The firm added the office in 2014 through a combination with intellectual property boutique firm Woodcock Washburn.
 
In 2015, the Atlanta office expanded with the addition of a 32-lawyer healthcare, corporate, real estate and litigation team from McKenna Long & Aldridge.
 
Lange comes to the firm from Holland & Knight. 
 
With a primary focus on transactional tax matters, Lange has more than 30 years of experience counselling clients on mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, joint ventures, debt financing and audits. He represents high-profile, multinational public companies in a multitude of industries, including aviation, healthcare, technology, telecommunications, biotechnology and e-commerce.
 
Lange regularly represents clients before the IRS and state departments of revenue, as well as in state court and the United States Tax Court. He is credited with obtaining the first IRS private letter ruling involving a tender-offer procedure related to the private business use of the proceeds from tax-exempt bonds. Lange also advises healthcare providers, skilled nursing homes and senior health facilities in tax-exempt entity matters.
 
“Joining BakerHostetler’s Atlanta office feels like a homecoming,” says Lange. “I’m excited to work alongside many of my former colleagues from McKenna Long & Aldridge, whom I admire for their professionalism and knowledge, as I begin to build out a tax practice in the firm’s rapidly expanding office.”
 
“As the first tax attorney in the Atlanta office, Mark is in a unique position to form the local practice while adding to the service offerings of our national platform,” says Paul Schmidt, chair of the firm’s tax group and a member of the firm-wide policy committee. “His broad range of experience with public, private and non-profit organisations, particularly in the healthcare sector, continues to diversify our group across the US.”
 
“Atlanta is a growing market for BakerHostetler, and the firm’s expansion into tax was the logical next step,” says Joann Gallagher Jones, managing partner of the Atlanta office. “Mark’s particular skill set advising multinational companies on complex tax matters will provide our clients with the strategies they need to grow their businesses. It’s an added benefit to welcome a friend and former colleague to the firm.”
