Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its Global Tax Practice and capabilities in the Asia-Pacific region with the admission of Aldrin De Zilva into the Firm's partnership, in Melbourne.
"Our Global Tax Practice is recognized globally for its forward-thinking approach on tax issues and precedent-setting firsts in structuring transactional matters," said White & Case partner Kim Boylan, head of the Firm's Global Tax Practice. "Aldrin is a highly regarded tax practitioner with significant experience in both tax advisory and tax litigation matters and is perfectly positioned to assist clients in Australia and support the growth of our tax offering in the Asia-Pacific region."
With over 25 years of experience, Aldrin advises large Australian and multinational entities on a wide variety of complex and significant transactions in Australia, including advising on a number of multi-billion dollar infrastructure projects. Aldrin also practices in tax litigation in Australia, representing clients at all stages of the tax investigations and litigation process, from responding to Australian Taxation Office reviews to representing clients in the High Court of Australia.
"The admission of Aldrin into the White & Case partnership significantly strengthens our ability to provide a full service offering to our clients in Australia," said White & Case partner Andrew Clark, Regional Section Head Asia-Pacific EIPAF & Disputes. "Aldrin has a strong track record and client base in the infrastructure sector and this experience perfectly complements one of the key industry focuses of our Australian practice."
Partner Donald Baker, a member of White & Case's global Executive Committee, added: "We are continuing to grow our Australian practice with Aldrin's admission to the partnership following the recent addition of experienced commercial litigation partner Kate Perumal in Sydney. These investments, coupled with the addition of M&A partner Dongho Lee in Seoul in April, demonstrate our continued commitment to growing our capabilities in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region more widely."
