Marc Romaldi (pictured) has left Kelly & Co, where he was a partner for more than eight years, to join boutique firm Kain C+C.
Kain C+C managing director John Kain said Romaldi’s appointment complements his company’s existing skill set in corporate and commercial work.
“Marc’s move is a great win for us,” he adds. “He is recognised as one of Australia’s leading tax lawyers.”
Romaldi is a specialist in capital gains tax, general income tax, international tax, stamp duty, GST and fringe benefits tax. He regularly advises ASX-listed companies, private enterprises and high-net-worth individuals on the corporate and tax implications of structuring, restructuring, acquisitions and sales. He also has particular expertise in the health services and the property, construction and infrastructure industries.
Romaldi commented: “[Kain C+C] proactively seeks out trends in other markets to try and lead rather than follow market trends and client demands. This is an environment in which I want to work and to which I want to contribute.”
Kelly & Co made eight redundancies in its Adelaide office in September, and was also involved in drama earlier in the year when partner Garry Winter quit the firm after his behaviour was referred to SA’s Legal Practitioners Conduct Board.
The firm also saw some changes in its tax practice recently when former PricewaterhouseCoopers partner Jim McMillan took over as head of that practice area.
