Maddocks has advised leading tax advisory firm, Greenwoods, on its merger with PwC Australia, with the deal representing a shift in tax advisory work in the Australian market.

Greenwoods has a long history as an independent provider of high value tax advice in Australia. The merger will see 15 tax partners and 50 staff moving to PwC’s financial advisory business.

Advising the Greenwoods partnership for Maddocks was lead Partner Ron Smooker with support from Partner Bruce Heddle, Jacqueline Picone, Simon Coates-Peacock and Oliver Wahlstrom.

Speaking about the merger, Ron Smooker said: ”Building on our established reputation as an adviser to professional services firms, we were able to assist the management team at Greenwoods to negotiate the challenges of implementing a commercially and technically complex transaction in an environment where stakeholder management was of paramount importance.”
