Last Updated: 26 July 2016

Sydney, 22 July 2016: Leading income tax lawyer Peter Feros has joined Clayton Utz as a partner, based in Sydney.

Peter specialises in providing strategic front-end income tax advice to listed Australian corporates and multinationals, and financial sponsors, with a focus on M&A and fund structuring. His key clients cover technology, communications, financial services, private equity, hedge and property funds.

Peter was previously a partner at Gilbert +Tobin, where he provided tax advice to clients in connection with many of the country's largest and most complex transactions. Peter also spent many years in the tax group of PwC as an adviser and then partner.

Clayton Utz national tax practice group leader Andrew Sommer said Peter's skillset was a natural fit for the practice.

"Peter's experience in front-end corporate tax work nicely complements our tax disputes capability, as does his track record of acting for a diverse range of clients, particularly those engaged in domestic and cross-border M&A and related transactions. Peter's reputation as a dynamic and energetic adviser with a focus on client service is also why he will be an asset to our team and have a leading role in continuing to grow the presence and reputation of the Clayton Utz tax practice."

In joining Clayton Utz, Peter said he was attracted to the opportunity to be part of a strong tax brand in the Australian market and work with an outstanding group of tax professionals. "In what is a highly competitive and largely undifferentiated market for tax services in Australia, our aim is to cement Clayton Utz as the unquestionable choice for clients seeking tax advice on their most important and strategic matters."
