Mathew thrives on getting results for clients by resolving disputes or structuring transactions in the most tax-effective manner.

In the resources sector, Mathew helped a large international conglomerate obtain a favourable stamp duty assessment and another large overseas company obtain a highly favourable income tax ruling and significant refunds of GST, in relation to an Australian mining joint venture. Mathew also advised on a High Court appeal in relation to stamp duty payable on disposal of a partnership interest which re-considered 30 years of partnership taxation rules.

Clients trust Mathew’s meticulous and commercially-based approach and commitment to their matter. No matter how complex or difficult the issue, he is dedicated to getting the best possible result for each and every client.
