Mr Gouveia (pictured) has joined Colin Biggers & Paisley's corporate and commercial team from Clayton Utz.
He has experience in the areas of major projects, construction, finance, and mergers and acquisitions.
As a qualified chartered accountant, Mr Gouveia is also able to provide advice on a wide variety of tax law, including income tax, capital gains tax, goods and services tax, stamp duty, fringe benefits tax and tax reform.
"We are delighted that Carlos has joined Colin Biggers & Paisley," said Jon Meadmore, Colin Biggers & Paisley's corporate and commercial team head.
"His appointment further strengthens our corporate and commercial team nationally. His breadth of experience from tax to infrastructure projects and finance will greatly benefit our team and our clients."
Colin Biggers & Paisley recently appointed property partner Rebecca Castley from Mullins Lawyers, but lost partner Martin Deutsch to Holding Redlich and senior associate Claire MacMillan to Wotton + Kearney.
