Partner Marina Raulings (pictured) will join the Melbourne practice, while senior associate Amanda Leong will be based in Sydney.
Ms Raulings advises corporate clients on several fronts, including in relation to stamp duty, tax disputes and the tax treatment of intangibles. She also has experience advising on tax issues relevant to the digital economy and e-business.
Peter Murray, Hall & Wilcox's tax practice head, said Ms Raulings’ stamp duty experience would be a great asset to the tax practice.
“Stamp duty is an especially important capability in our practice, given our sector strength in areas such as property development, funds management, corporate restructures, and M&A.”
In February, Hall & Wilcox nabbed another Minter Ellison lawyer, senior associate Nick Slack.
Towards the end of last year the firm opened in Perth, following a stream of other firms, including Wotton + Kearney and Mills Oakley.
