Michael Perez will join the Melbourne office of KWM in January.
At Allens, Michael advised a range of high-profile clients such as Rio Tinto, Tabcorp, BHP Billiton, Ford and Shell on a broad spectrum of matters including reorganisations, demergers, financing arrangements and mergers & acquisitions.
He has expertise in stamp duty, GST and income tax, and a strong track record in managing complex tax audits and tax litigation.
Justin Cherrington (pictured), KWM’s head of tax, commented on the appointment: “We are thrilled to welcome Michael to the practice. We are continuing to build on the best tax group in Australia and the addition of someone of Michael’s calibre underscores our ability to connect our clients with the best people and the best opportunities in the market.”
