Mills Oakley has deepened its litigation expertise with the recruitment of a high-profile litigator in Brisbane.
Ashley Tiplady has joined the top firm as a partner based in Brisbane, making the move from boutique firm Russells. He also spent a majority of his career at MinterEllison.
Tiplady is experienced in large “bet-the-farm” commercial litigation, defamation, high-level corporate insolvency, off-shore tax litigation, regulatory white collar investigations and prosecutions, and sports law disputes, Mills Oakley said.
Mills Oakley recently grew its banking and finance practice with the appointment partner Graeme Gurney. It also recently launched an IP practice in Melbourne with the appointment of partner Steven Wuff.
Tiplady also has notable experience in major tax disputes, having advised numerous individuals subject to Australian Taxation Office investigation and prosecution connected to alleged off-shore asset holdings. He has been involved in significant taxation events, including Project Wickenby, the Panama Papers, and the 2008 Lichtenstein tax affairs.
