MinterEllison has appointed James Momsen as a corporate tax partner of the firm. To be based in the firm's Sydney office, Mr Momsen is widely regarded as one of the emerging stars of the Sydney corporate tax market, with particular skills in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and private equity.
Returning to MinterEllison from a successful career at KPMG (which included time in New York), Mr Momsen brings with him over 10 years' experience, during which he has accumulated a track record of advising on many significant private equity and M&A transactions for a range of domestic and international clients.
Mr Momsen's appointment will complement MinterEllison's already impressive line-up of private equity and corporate M&A partners. "By bringing specialised tax skills in M&A and private equity, James will enhance our transaction services offering for our clients – we believe having James embedded in our M&A and private equity teams will offer our clients a seamless tax and legal solutions set with a market leading transaction and implementation capability," said Ricky Casali, MinterEllison's Private Equity practice leader.
"In addition to his skills in M&A and private equity, James works with a diverse range of corporate clients providing tax solutions in cross border investments, and capital management transactions" said Bill Thompson, MinterEllison's Australian Tax Practice Leader.
“He marries his technical analysis with commercial acumen and pragmatism... We are delighted that James has chosen to return to the firm”
