New York Tax Planning partner Angelo Ciavarella recently joined Katten, a move that was profiled in Law360. Angelo told Law360 that he was drawn to Katten due to the firm's national reputation in tax planning. "It's different in that it has depth and broad range of experience found in traditional large law firms, but it has also maintained an entrepreneurial spirit which allows it to be nimble and adjust to changes in the industry as well as changes in my client's needs," he said, adding that he looks forward to using his experience working with private equity funds to work on client deals. "I think this provides me with an opportunity to add value to an established transactional practice in connection with sophisticated, domestic and cross-border transactions."
