On February 27, 2018, the Boston Chapter of the Federal Bar Association (FBA) Tax Section and Ropes and Gray co-hosted an event that featured Judge David Gustafson of the United States Tax Court. The event provided the opportunity for attendees to network and connect with other practitioners from Boston area law and accounting firms, the Internal Revenue Service, local non-profit organizations and LLM students from Boston University School of Law and Suffolk Law School.
Judge Gustafson was appointed as judge by former president George W. Bush in 2008. Prior to his appointment, Judge Gustafson served as a trial attorney, Assistant Chief and eventual Chief in the Court of Federal Claims Section of the Tax Division in the U.S. Department of Justice. He offered a variety of interesting remarks about his experience as a Tax Court judge, and provided a behind-the-scenes look at the process behind reviewed opinions.
