KPMG takes rest of Maddocks’ tax controversy team

KPMG takes rest of Maddocks’ tax controversy team

Maddocks partner Angela Wood and two senior lawyers from the firm’s tax controversy team are joining KPMG as 12 members of the same practice prepare to move to Minter Ellison.

Wood (pictured) will be joined at KPMG by special counsel Ross Hocking and senior associate Angelina Lagana.

The team has worked together at Maddocks for the past 10 years.

The KPMG appointments were announced in the wake of a Lawyers Weekly exclusive revealing that a dozen partners and lawyers from Maddocks’ tax controversy team had defected to Minters.

With the addition of Wood, Hocking and Lagana, KPMG’s Legal and Tax Services will grow to a practice of nine partners and special counsel across offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Rosheen Garnon, KPMG National Managing Partner – Tax, said the Maddocks team, having represented the ATO for a number of years in leading tax cases, would offer KPMG’s clients a “distinctive proposition and perspective”.

KPMG offers niche legal services to its clients, focusing on tax. Tax dispute resolution is an area the firm has targeted for particular attention.

A recent survey by KPMG International found that 75 per cent of tax executives globally were involved in a tax examination or dispute with a tax authority.

Garnon said, in Australia, the firm is seeing a rise in disputes with a cross-border element.

“We are busy recruiting specialist tax lawyers who can help companies operating both domestically and internationally,” she added.

The partners in Maddocks’ tax controversy practice who have taken roles at Minters are: Carmen McElwain in Melbourne and Peter Poulos and Chris Kinsella in Sydney.
