Caplin & Drysdale's Founder Reaches Another Milestone

July 10, 2015

Caplin & Drysdale's annual firm-wide birthday celebration of the firm's founder, Mortimer M. Caplin, took place on July 8, 2015 (Mr. Caplin's actual birthday is July 11th). Now 99 years old, the former IRS Commissioner under Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, was honored by family, friends, fellow attorneys, and support staff who gathered in the firm's Washington, D.C., and New York City offices. The firm presented Mr. Caplin with a 30-minute video chronicling his remarkable life.

"Mort is an extraordinary person, and we look forward to celebrating his centennial year with him."
