I am a senior member of MinterEllison’s Tax Controversy team. With more than 30 years' experience in taxation law, I help clients better control and influence their tax risk profiles and minimise disputes with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

I have extensive experience in cross border financing, distribution, ecommerce, and services transfer pricing audits and Part IVA of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 (Cth). I have advised on significant and complex tax disputes in the Federal Court of Australia and High Court of Australia.

My practice also includes advising on ATO access and information powers, tax risk and tax governance frameworks, with a view to developing long-term relationships with the ATO.
