BABCPHL Board Member Feature – Leon J. Dutkiewicz Jr.

Leon L. Dutkiewicz Jr. is a Partner with Citrin Cooperman, one of the top 25 largest tax and advisory firms in the US. He is the Leader of the International Tax Practice, as well as the Co-Leader of the Philadelphia Tax Department.  With more than 25 years of tax and business experience, Leon specializes in international taxation with a proficiency in structuring global acquisitions and divestitures, analyzing income tax treaty benefits, assisting with transfer pricing implementation and compliance services. Navigating the rapidly changing international tax law can be overwhelming and complex. Leon proudly leads Citrin Cooperman’s International Taxation Services practice and provides the guidance and professional expertise that international clients require.

Leon has been involved with the BABCPHL for almost nine years, and has served as a board member for the past two. Leon states, “many of my clients have global operations, with a large portion of them either in the UK or they have come to the US from the UK.  The BABCPHL is a natural fit for me personally because my practice is UK-centric.” Through the BABCPHL, Leon has been able to expand his business network and make some new friends in the process. His favorite memory with the BABCPHL was his first Signature Annual Holiday Lunch. “It was a new and fulfilling experience with many great moments.” Leon noted that one of these memories involved his business partner, Stuart, who had left just before his name was called to win the airline ticket door prize! To this day, Leon continues to joke with Stuart about his great misfortune!

Pre-pandemic, Leon was often traveling and eating out, which are two of his favorite pastimes both personally and professionally. Throughout the pandemic, he has greatly missed being able to do these things and to be constantly interacting with his friends, family, clients and colleagues. Once pandemic restrictions are lifted, Leon looks forward to being able to travel more freely – especially internationally.  He is looking forward to visiting and spending time with friends and clients in Europe, hopefully in the not too distant future. Leon’s silver lining of the pandemic was getting a dog. He had been wanting to for quite some time, but hadn’t had time between work, traveling, errands, and just life in general. The pandemic gave him the time to care for a new dog, and he could not be happier.
