Philadelphia (Feb. 5, 2004) -- Gary B. Wilcox, Internal Revenue Service deputy chief counsel, will step down from his post to rejoin the tax practice of his former law firm, Morgan Lewis, in mid-February.

Wilcox joined the IRS in February 2002 as principal deputy to former chief counsel B. John Williams. He oversees a 700-attorney staff in the IRS National Office that provides technical guidance on tax issues to the IRS, the Treasury Department and the Department of Justice. His office is also responsible for issuing regulations, revenue rulings and procedures, and private letter rulings.

"We are pleased to welcome Gary back to the firm after such a distinguished career in government," said Morgan Lewis chairman Francis Milone. "He can provide our clients with current insights into tax policy at both the Department of Treasury and the IRS."

Wilcox joined Morgan Lewis' tax group in 1992 and was elected to the partnership in 1995. In 1997, he left the firm to join PricewaterhouseCoopers, where he served as co-leader of the mergers and acquisitions tax group in the firm’s Washington National Tax Services office.
