Taxing times for Aitken Partners

Taxing times for Aitken Partners

Aitken Partners has integrated with WHK Tax Lawyers, the Melbourne-based legal practice of accounting firm WHK.

Aitken Partners has integrated with WHK Tax Lawyers, the Melbourne-based legal practice of accounting firm WHK. 

The WHK team is led by partner Mubeen Khadir and includes associate Sam Campbell.

Khadir, who speaks Hindi, Urdu & Tamil, has worked in both Australia and overseas with the ‘Big Four’ accounting firms and with top-tier law firms.

He spent three years in Bahrain with Ernst & Young (EY), where he set up and led the EY Bahrain international and transaction tax practice.

“The more work we have done with Aitken Partners during the past year the more this move made sense,” said Khadir.

“By joining Aitken Partners we can offer a more comprehensive range of services to our legal clients, and by continuing our close relationship with WHK we can perhaps assist Aitken Partners’ clients as well.”

Campbell has more than 10 years’ experience as a lawyer and specialises in tax, litigation and migration advice.

“Aitken Partners has expertise in tax and business law, Sam and I will add to that and provide a few more people to throw at issues like tax disputes and structuring,” said Khadir.

Aitken Partners’ managing partner, Andrew Blogg (pictured), said the move would be a natural fit for the firm.

“Australia is now also of global interest as a business investment destination, so we think our expanded offering in tax and business structuring along with migration law advice will be of interest to our many affiliate firms in [international accounting and law firm network] MSI Global,” said Blogg.

Aitken Partners has 10 partners and around 75 staff.
