Rather than relying solely on Twitter, Facebook and other forms of social networking to keep our friends and clients up to date, we are continuing our long-standing practice of summarizing important developments in an annual “year in review” memo. We hope you find the attached summary helpful and that you will contact any member of the Ropes & Gray Tax or Employee Benefits practice groups with any questions you may have. We will continue, of course, to keep you informed of important developments as they occur throughout the year.
