Partner leaves one global for another

Partner leaves one global for another

Ellen Thomas, Norton Rose Fulbright

Tax lawyer Ellen Thomas has left one global firm to join Norton Rose Fulbright's Sydney office.

Ms Thomas (pictured) was most recently a partner in the Sydney tax team at Baker & McKenzie, and before that she was a senior lawyer at King & Wood Mallesons.

Ms Thomas has experience advising on international, corporate and banking tax issues across a broad range of industries.

She has advised on complex global and domestic mergers and acquisitions transactions, corporate restructures, post-acquisition integrations, international tax planning, distressed debt transactions, infrastructure investments and financial arrangements.

She also has experience dealing with the Australian Taxation Office, including in relation to ruling applications, audits and dispute resolution.

“Strong tax advice is an essential part of any corporate law offering,” Wayne Spanner, Norton Rose Fulbright managing partner in Australia, said.

“We are delighted to have Ellen join us, bringing with her a proven history in complex international tax advice, strong ties to many of our clients’ core industries, and mentoring of talented female lawyers.”

Since the beginning of the year, NRF has appointed construction and engineering disputes lawyer Peter Lamont to its Brisbane office but has suffered a number of losses.

These include Gerard Timbs, who joined Holding Redlich, Alena Titterton and Michael Tooma, who joined Clyde & Co, Ben Allen, who joined Gadens, and Arthur Chong, who joined DLA Piper.
