Installed as the new leader of the around 200-strong practice is Sandie Boswell, who has been named National Managing Partner for Tax. She steps into the shoes of Nicole Bradley, who held the role for about three years.

With the regulatory landscape constantly changing and issues such as multinational tax and Australian tax reform increasingly in the news, we have a wonderful team of taxation experts adept at supporting our clients to grow,” said Boswell.
