Within: Tax

Ashurst’s ‘pre-eminent’ team possesses ‘excellent technical knowledge’ and is able to ‘distill complex issues in a way that is relevant to commercial outcomes’. It provides the full range of tax advisory services and deploys its ‘detailed understanding of the workings of state revenue authorities’ when advising on domestic and cross-border matters. Peter McCullough has ‘superior technical and analytical abilities’ and is representing The Bell Group and its liquidator in a Federal Court challenge to assessments for income tax made by the Commissioner of Taxation. Tax controversy is a particular strength for the group which also includes the ‘calm persona’ Barbara Phair; she advised Jemena on the tax aspects of its Darling Downs pipeline acquisition from Origin Energy. Vivian Chang heads the practice; Sanjay Wavde has been promoted to partner. BHP Billiton, Macquarie and ANZ count among the team's clients.
