13 FEBRUARY 2018 (SYDNEY): LegalVision has expanded its suite of commercial legal services by welcoming a new practice leader, James Meli, to launch the firm’s tax practice.
James has more than ten years’ experience in state, national and international tax issues. Beginning his career with the Australian Taxation Office, James has led tax practice groups in a number of private law firms. James’ expertise will enhance the firm’s ability to assist startups, SMEs, developers and investors with tax advice, including restructuring, audits, disputes and overseas expansion.
“James’ experience and expertise adds immense value to both our current and future clients,” said LegalVision’s CEO, Lachlan McKnight.
“We’ve seen first-hand how many businesses need a tax expert in order to navigate the complexity of the tax landscape. Whether our clients are operating locally or expanding into international markets, we’ll now be able to assist them.”
Commenting on his new role, James reinforced the opportunity to shape and lead the new practice.
“I look forward to helping LegalVision’s clients with whatever tax issue they’re facing, whether they’re a tech-based startup or a listed company,” he said.
“LegalVision has proved how well clients respond to lawyers who care about their experience and provide services differently, and it’s a great opportunity to continue with, and build upon, that work in the tax space.”
