Thomas V. Linguanti Joins Morgan, Lewis & Bockius as Partner

ISBA member Thomas V. Linguanti, a leading federal court tax controversy trial lawyer, recently joined Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP's Chicago office as a partner. Mr. Linguanti, a former trial and appellate attorney in the Tax Division of the US Department of Justice, was the leader of the North American tax practice at his previous global law firm. His arrival brings additional recognition to the firm’s already top-ranked, market-leading tax practice.

Mr. Linguanti advises individual and corporate clients worldwide in developing strategies in disputes with the US Internal Revenue Service during audits, alternative dispute resolution proceedings, and trial and appellate litigation. He has represented tax clients before numerous federal courts and the US Tax Court and was the lead lawyer in Medtronic Inc. v. Commissioner, in which the court’s ruling slashed the medical device company’s tax deficiencies from $1.36 billion to $14 million in a transfer pricing dispute involving its Puerto Rico operations. The case is on appeal to the US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit, with Mr. Linguanti as lead counsel.

Mr. Linguanti speaks frequently on federal tax controversy issues and negotiation strategies. He is also a faculty member of the National Institute for Trial Advocacy, teaching advocacy skills to government, public interest, and private firm lawyers.
