Fried Frank tax partner Alan S. Kaden has been recognized as one of the top ten tax lawyers in the Washington D.C, area according to Legal Times, a leading legal publication published by American Lawyer Media.
Profiled in the July 18, 2005 issue of Legal Times ("Tax 2005: When the IRS Wants More"), Mr. Kaden is called the "$50 billion dollar man," based on the value of deals he worked on in 2004. He is also noted as, "being skilled in both transactional tax planning and tax-controversy work ... advising major companies such as BellSouth Corp., Cargill Inc., Dow Jones & Co., El Paso Energy Corp. and WPP Group."
"Alan has been a dynamic partner who is routinely sought out to guide some of the largest transactions in the world. It is a source of pride for Fried Frank that one of our partners should be selected as one of the leading lawyers in this area," stated Valerie Ford Jacob, Fried Frank's Chairperson.
As chairman of Fried Frank's international tax department in Washington, Alan Kaden works closely with all the firm's practice groups and is an integral member of the corporate transactional practice. Based in Washington, Mr. Kaden's practice is unique in that it is both local and national in scope, advising some of the country's leading public and private corporations, investment bankers, and other law firms.
