National appoints tax specialist to partnership

National appoints tax specialist to partnership

A Sydney tax lawyer has left Gilbert + Tobin to join the leadership team of a national rival.

Tax specialist Peter Feros (pictured) has been appointed to the Clayton Utz partnership in Sydney. He leaves Gilbert + Tobin, where he was a partner leading tax advice on large and complex transactions. 

Mr Feros previously spent a number of years working in the PwC tax group, as an adviser and then a partner. He specialises in M&A and fund structuring, with a broader focus on strategic income tax advice for corporates and financial sponsors.

Andrew Sommer, national group leader for the Clayton Utz tax practice, suggested Mr Feros’ cross-border experience would complement the firm.

"Peter's experience in front-end corporate tax work nicely complements our tax disputes capability, as does his track record of acting for a diverse range of clients, particularly those engaged in domestic and cross-border M&A and related transactions,” Mr Sommer said.

“Peter's reputation as a dynamic and energetic adviser with a focus on client service is also why he will be an asset to our team and have a leading role in continuing to grow the presence and reputation of the Clayton Utz tax practice,” he added.

Mr Feros’ key clients cover the technology, communications, financial services and private equity spaces, as well as hedge and property funds. 

Speaking of his new role, Mr Feros said: “In what is a highly competitive and largely undifferentiated market for tax services in Australia, our aim is to cement Clayton Utz as the unquestionable choice for clients seeking tax advice on their most important and strategic matters.”

Clayton Utz recently lost senior associate Elliot Raleigh to Kemp Strang, where he was appointed as a partner in the firm’s Melbourne office. In June, former Clayton Utz special counsel Peter Bowden left the firm to become a partner with global firm Norton Rose Fulbright.
