Every legal transaction gives rise to taxation issues. Identifying, understanding, evaluating and dealing with tax risk is critical, whether undertaking a significant transaction or day-to-day business matters.

Operating nationally, our tax team provides exceptional legal services, offering strategic advice on our clients’ most challenging issues. Our dedicated team of specialist tax lawyers possess a depth of experience across the full spectrum of direct and indirect taxes.

We are at the forefront of high profile, strategic and transformative projects, focusing on transactional work, M&A, tax due diligence, cross-border investment (inbound and outbound), private equity investment, funds establishment and management, major projects and infrastructure, capital markets and finance, property development and real estate, and corporate restructures.

Our team provides full service, end-to-end tax transactional support on domestic and cross-border mandates, starting with tax due diligence and structuring advice, through to legal documentation and post-merger implementation advice.

We regularly represent clients in tax controversy matters, including audits, disputes, obtaining rulings, other engagement with tax authorities and tax litigation, and work closely with other practice groups to deliver seamless, timely, commercial and efficient outcomes.

We combine exceptional knowledge of Australia’s tax regime with international best practice and experience. Our strong track record has led to our involvement in broader tax policy discussions through representation on industry bodies and government consultations, providing us with invaluable insight into the policy direction that can influence transactions.
