Cameron Forbes (pictured) has joined Thomson Geer as the newest partner in its tax practice.

He specialises, the BigLaw firm said in a statement, in advising corporate clients on income tax, stamp duty and GST matters associated with major corporate transactions, and brings experience as a merger and acquisition lawyer to his tax practice, “which enables him to bring a commercial perspective to his work”.

Mr Forbes joins the firm from Clayton Utz, where he served as a special counsel and earlier as a senior associate. He has also worked at King & Wood Mallesons.


The news follows the firm’s taking of two partners from Carter Newell in late September, its promotion of 23 lawyers to more senior roles and addition of a lateral principal in June, promotion of three to partner in the same month, appointment of a partner from a Hong Kong-based investment company in May, appointment of a partner from Allens in April, and taking of a team of eight from HopgoodGanim in February.

Speaking about the appointment, Thomson Geer chief executive partner Adrian Tembel said: “Cameron has a wealth of experience working as a tax lawyer for top-tier firms and the State Revenue Office Victoria. Combined with his strong links to the Australian Taxation Office, his skills and experience are invaluable to clients.”

“With Cameron joining us, we are able to increase our service offering to clients and provide them with the full suite of advice they need when undertaking a corporate transaction. Successfully navigating Australia’s taxation laws is a key element to completing a deal.”

Mr Forbes added: “Thomson Geer is a major Australian law firm with a large and active M&A practice.

“The tax environment in Australia is changing rapidly, and I look forward to assisting clients with their needs.”

Thomson Geer has over 700 staff, including more than 140 partners, across its Australian offices in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney.
