M&A/Private Equity tax specialist James Momsen returns to MinterEllison after 7 years at KPMG
MinterEllison has appointed James Momsen as a corporate tax partner of the firm. To be based in the firm’s Sydney office, Mr Momsen is widely regarded as one of the emerging stars of the Sydney corporate tax market, with particular skills in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and private equity.
Returning to MinterEllison from a successful career at KPMG (which included time in New York), Mr Momsen brings with him over 10 years’ experience, during which he has accumulated a track record of advising on many significant private equity and M&A transactions for a range of domestic and international clients.
Mr Momsen’s appointment will complement MinterEllison’s already impressive line-up of private equity and corporate M&A partners. “By bringing specialised tax skills in M&A and private equity, James will enhance our transaction services offering for our clients – we believe having James embedded in our M&A and private equity teams will offer our clients a seamless tax and legal solutions set with a market leading transaction and implementation capability,” said Ricky Casali, MinterEllison’s Private Equity practice leader.
“In addition to his skills in M&A and private equity, James works with a diverse range of corporate clients providing tax solutions in cross border investments, and capital management transactions” said Bill Thompson, MinterEllison’s Australian Tax Practice Leader.
James’ appointment underlines the continuing growth and capability of MinterEllison’s multi-disciplinary tax practice nationally following the appointments of Anthony Portas in Brisbane and Elissa Romanin in Melbourne. Mr Thompson continued, “Our tax practice continues to grow as a competitive proposition. Our clients find MinterEllison’s unified legal and tax offering with our solutions focus, compelling in deals, in tax risk management and in controversy.”
