Vinson & Elkins LLP announced via a press release that Gary R. Huffman and Joe Garcia Jr. have joined the firm in its Washington, D.C. office. They come from the firm of Bingham McCutchen LLP.

“Gary and Joe are world-class lawyers who perfectly complement our existing tax practice and add depth in areas of focus such as energy, publicly traded partnerships and representation of financial institutions,” V&E Chairman Mark Kelly said. “Increasing our bandwidth in D.C. also is a key component of our firm-wide growth strategy. Having additional tax capabilities in the nation’s capital will help us better serve our international client base.”

“V&E is home to some of the best energy, capital markets, M&A and tax lawyers in the world and is built around a strong culture of collegiality and collaboration,” Huffman said. “Given V&E’s reputation as a leader in the energy space and its impressive work in international transactions, we are certain the firm is a great platform for our practice.”
