Bowditch & Dewey announced today that Matthew Morris has joined the firm as a partner in the Estate, Financial & Tax Planning Practice.

Mr. Morris concentrates his practice in corporate and individual income tax controversies, probate administration and trust and estate tax-related matters. He is frequently retained by foreign nationals, dual nationals and expatriate U.S. citizens seeking compliance with their federal income tax responsibilities.

Mr. Morris has represented businesses and individuals in federal and state tax audits, prepared requests for IRS Private Letter Rulings, litigated various tax matters when appropriate, and successfully prepared claims for “innocent spouse relief.”

“We are delighted to welcome Mathew to Bowditch & Dewey,” said Managing Partner James D. Hanrahan. “His tax expertise and the breadth of his experience appearing before federal and state revenue authorities will strengthen our firm’s highly regarded tax and tax controversy practice.”

“I  look forward  to contributing to the continued growth of Bowditch’s tax practice and to the high-quality work of the group’s attorneys,” Mr. Morris said.

Before joining Bowditch, Mr. Morris was a partner with Kerstein, Coren & Lichtenstein, LLP in Wellesley. After graduating cum laude from the University of Maine School of Law, where he received the Student Bar Association Distinguished Service Award for his contributions to the law school, he earned an LL.M. in Taxation from Boston University School of Law, where he was the recipient of the Dean Ernest M. Haddad Award for academic achievement and character. Mr. Morris also earned a master’s degree from Stanford University, and a bachelor’s degree from Brown University.

Mr. Morris, who will work in the firm’s Framingham office, has written for several professional publications, and is the author of numerous articles, including “FATCA and the Road to Expatriation” for Tax Notes, “Spring Cleaning for the Massachusetts Legislature and the DOR” for State Tax Notes, and “Resolving Sales and Use Tax Disputes in Massachusetts,” for the National Business Institute.
