McCullough Robertson snares leading lady of tax

McCullough Robertson has further strengthened its high end corporate tax and structuring practice with the appointment of leading tax adviser Teresa Dyson.  

Ms Dyson joins the firm following three years at accounting giant Deloitte and, prior to that, 16 years at global law firm Ashurst.  

Ms Dyson has advised the nation’s biggest companies, providing taxation solutions and strategies around corporate transactions and restructuring, leasing and international financing. She has also advised governments, bidding consortia and financiers on infrastructure and PPP transactions, including road and rail projects, social infrastructure and utilities projects. 

McCullough Robertson tax Partner Mark West said Teresa will bring a unique perspective to the tax team as the immediate past Chair of the Board of Taxation, a role in which she engaged with the business community and key representative groups to help develop sound tax policy. 

“Not only will our clients benefit from Teresa’s connections with business, industry and governments but also her intimate knowledge and understanding of policy implications for businesses across multiple sectors,” said Mr West. 

“She is very well respected in the industry, delivering integrated, commercial and workable options to clients across the entire lifecycle of businesses – from commencement (or entry into Australia), through general expansion and operations to ultimate exit or winding up.”   

Teresa’s current Board appointments include Chair of Business Law Section (Law Council of Australia) and Deputy Chair of Gold Coast Hospital and Health Board.  She also sits on the board of UN Women National Committee Australia and the Audit & Risk Committee of Lifeline Australia.
