April 2, 2012

Eaton Peabody continues to add depth of experience to its full service law firm by welcoming Dan Pittman. Mr. Pittman will leave Wall Street to join Eaton Peabody's Business Law Practice Group as a tax attorney.

"We were looking for an experienced tax lawyer and Dan and his wife were looking to move to Maine," stated managing partner Dan McKay.  "Dan's desire for the quality of life Maine offers and our need for a highly qualified tax lawyer turned out to be a shared good fortune.   We are delighted to welcome Dan to Eaton Peabody."    

"My wife and I were committed to move to Maine to find the quality of life we are seeking. Finding my niche at a highly regarded law firm like Eaton Peabody was the icing on the cake," stated Mr. Pittman. "I am very excited to join such a well-respected Maine law firm."

Mr. Pittman's experience includes representing clients with respect to international, federal and state tax planning and controversies.

He has experience advising clients on international issues including tax treaty planning and compliance and sheltering gains from U.S. taxation, foreign tax credits, repatriation of profits, and cross-border transactions.

Additionally, Mr. Pittman advises clients on mergers and acquisitions, dispositions, equity and debt issuances and investment structures. He has worked extensively with various tax exempt organizations advising on such matters as corporate governance, charitable activities, investment income and related issues.

Mr. Pittman received his J.D. in 2001 from New York University School of Law (where he received a three year, full tuition scholarship) and his L.L. M., Taxation in 2006.   He received his B.A. in Philosophy and sociology, magna cum laude, from Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois in 1998.
