The ‘Emerging Tax Star’ category is awarded to a developing tax professional who has demonstrated commitment and passion in building their tax career and recognises ‘young tax professionals who are already proving themselves as future leaders in the profession’. The full list of finalists can be found here.
Peter, who was promoted to Senior Associate in July last year, advises across most areas of tax with a particular focus on corporate and international tax, deals, employee share schemes, trusts and tax controversy matters.
Peter has recently been involved in several landmark transactions, including acting on:
- Starwood Capital’s first Australian debt deal, a $220m development facility,
- Nufarm Limited’s US$475m offering of senior unsecured notes to institutional buyers in the United States, and
- Specialty Fashion Group (now City Chic Collective Limited) in relation to its strategic sale of its Millers, Katies, Crossroads, Autograph and Rivers portfolio of businesses to Noni B.
The Tax Institute’s CEO, Giles Hurst, commented on this year’s finalists: “The nominations this year have been plentiful and high in quality, and the standard has certainly gone up by another notch this year. It is inspiring to see the Tax Adviser of the Year Awards evolve and mature as we transition to this new and exciting decade.”
The Award winners will be announced and presented during The Tax Institute’s Tax Summit Gala in Sydney on 12 March 2020.
