Holding Redlich adds partner to tax team

A new partner has joined Holding Redlich’s tax controversy practice.

Sue Williamson has been confirmed as the new partner, bringing with her more than 30 years’ experience.


Throughout her career, Ms Williamson has advised public companies, high-net-worth individuals, and not-for-profit organisations on federal and state tax issues with a focus on tax risk management, dispute resolution and litigation. She joins Holding Redlich from Ernst & Young where she developed and led the firm’s Melbourne tax controversy practice.

“Sue is renowned for her ability to translate complex issues and apply technical and strategic advice that helps clients navigate the tax landscape. Her appointment is a significant addition to our national disputes practice,” Melbourne managing partner, Howard Rapke, said.


National managing partner, Ian Robertson, added: “Our tax controversy practice is an important and fast-growing part of our firm. Sue will significantly boost our national capability in this area and we’re very pleased that she has joined us.”

Commenting on her new role, Ms Williamson said: “I am delighted to join Holding Redlich. The Holding Redlich strategy that attracted me is based on two key factors: expertise and independence”.

“The Holding Redlich regulatory disputes team has exemplary skills on all dispute and litigation issues relating to disputes with regulators, including evidence gathering, legal profession privilege, alternative dispute resolution and dispute strategy. Importantly, the team brings an independent assessment to disputes, working with experts in related areas including tax, competition and intellectual property, to understand the underlying technical issues,” she added.
