Thomson Geer has appointed Clayton Utz lawyer Cameron Forbes as a partner in the firm's tax practice.

Forbes is a specialist in matters involving income tax, stamp duty, and GST that are associated with major corporate transactions. He has provided guidance on tax structuring in all areas of corporate tax, as well as tax advice on M&A, construction and major projects, banking and finance, real estate and general corporate matters.

His clients include corporates, and he has worked on major and highly complex deals in Australia.

According to CEP Adrian Tembel, Forbes’ addition strengthens the firm’s offering because “successfully navigating Australia’s taxation laws is a key element to completing a deal.”

Prior to specialising in tax law, Forbes focused on M&A, which equipped him with a commercial perspective. In addition to his tenure with Clayton Utz, he also worked with the State Revenue Office Victoria and the ATO.

Forbes is also part of the Tax Institute of Australia and Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand. He is the sixth new partner to join Thomson Geer this year, following M&A partners Matt Couper, Jonathon Wood, and David Church, and banking partners Nicholas Creed and Andrew Kedzior.
