Munsch Hardt strengthened its Corporate & Securities practice with the addition of Daniel G. Baucum as a shareholder in its Dallas office. Baucum brings more than 35 years of experience in the tax and business industry and has worked with all aspects of pass-through entities, such as partnerships and limited liability companies.
“Dan brings with him a unique background with extensive knowledge and experience in both the government and private tax arenas,” said Phil C. Appenzeller, Jr., CEO of Munsch Hardt. “His 10 years in Washington, D.C. give him insight into the inner workings of the IRS and Treasury Department. Our Corporate & Securities practice group will greatly benefit from his advice on how to best work with government policymakers.”
Baucum has served as business and tax counsel on numerous domestic and international transactions involving both public and private clients. His experience involves providing advice to companies from various industries, such as oil and gas and the medical practice, in acquisitions and private equity sales. Additionally, he assists clients with estate and succession planning matters.
“Munsch Hardt’s Corporate & Securities practice group is significantly growing and I’m thrilled to be a part of this team,” Baucum said. “The reach of this group, not only throughout Texas, but across the myriad of industries in which they work, will provide me with a strong platform for serving my clients’ evolving legal needs.”
Beyond his legal practice, Baucum currently serves as a Co-Director of the State Bar of Texas’ Tax Section’s Leadership Academy and is a member of the Tax Section’s Council. He also serves as Chair of the Dallas Bar Association’s Tax Section. He is a member of the Partnership and Real Estate Tax Committee, the Civil and Criminal Tax Penalties Committee and the Administrative Practice Committee of the American Bar Association’s Tax Section. In addition, Baucum serves as a director and corporate secretary of the Texas Federal Tax Institute.
Baucum is also an adjunct professor at the Dedman School of Law at Southern Methodist University teaching a course on business and tax law. Most recently, he was named as a “Power Attorney” in 2014 by the Fort Worth Business Press and was recognized as a “Best Lawyer” in Taxation by D Magazine in 2014.
