All's well that Birtwell

We may or may not have mentioned this before, but tax attorneys are an excitable sort. We're not kidding. We have a good friend who is very enthusiastic about practicing tax law. It's almost disconcerting how enthusiastic our friend is. So we can only imagine that Jan Birtwell is positively quivering with excited joy that she's now a tax partner in O'Melveny & Myers' M&A and private equity group. Although we're sure she's also quivering with melancholy fondness that she's leaving Linklaters.
