“Idan has done considerable work with next-generation technology companies, an important focus for Northern California, and will be a great resource on complex, multijurisdictional tax projects and corporate transactions,” said David Colker, global and US co-chair of DLA Piper’s Tax practice. “He will thrive in our global platform, as he’ll join a team of like-minded colleagues focused on being the preeminent international tax practice.”
