Tony Watson joins Mills Oakley to lead its tax practice in Sydney
Australian national law firm, Mills Oakley, has expanded its tax team as a result of increased client demand for end-to-end transactional capabilities.
Anthony (Tony) Watson has joined the firm’s Sydney office, after over 20 years at Greenwoods & Herbert Smith Freehills.
Tony is leading Mills Oakley’s Sydney Tax Practice, which covers all federal taxes (direct and indirect) and all NSW duties and taxes.
Mills Oakley CEO John Nerurker said: “Nearly all transactions have a tax element and Tony can add value across the board. For example, he is currently assisting our Property team with the stamp duty and CGT aspects of a major commercial property transaction, our Government team with the GST implications of clean energy funding and our Dispute Resolution team with a tax litigation matter.”
Tony commenced with Mills Oakley in June.
