Mr. Brunori, a longtime adjunct at GW Law, joins an exclusive group of America's best tax attorneys.
David Brunori, a longtime adjunct at GW Law, was recently elected a fellow at the American College of Tax Counsel. Mr. Brunori, who also has a faculty position at GW in the the Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration, is a partner at Quarles & Brady in Washington, D.C.
Fellows must be nominated for the honor of membership and must then undergo a rigorous screening process prior to being elected as fellows of the college. "I was lucky to have an old friend who happens to be one of the leading tax attorneys in the country nominate me," Mr. Brunori said. "The college then takes a vote and I was fortunate they said yes."
Membership, which is limited to 700 tax attorneys in the United States, is reserved for those leaders who have made significant contributions to the understanding and improvement of the tax system. "It is quite an honor to be elected a fellow at the college," Mr. Brunori said. "It's quite an exclusive group. If you look at the members from D.C. alone, it is a who's who among leaders in the tax bar. It's a little daunting to be included in such company."
Mr. Brunori says that being a member of the college will help him in both his practice and his teaching at the law school. "The college is about fostering excellence in the profession, continuing education, and involvement in the development of sound tax policy and practice. I hope I will impart some of that learning to my students. Many of the current members teach or have taught over the years," he said.
