Taussig Cherrie Fildes has extensive experience and expertise assisting clients who have complex financial matters, including sophisticated trust and corporate structures, interests in large businesses, inter-generational wealth and property located in multiple jurisdictions.
Our team brings to every matter commercial nous, underpinned by strategic, pragmatic and collaborative problem-solving. Debra Cherrie and Paul Fildes are both recognized by Doyle’s Guide as preeminent lawyers in high-value and complex property matters.
We understand the challenges and opportunities presented by trust and corporate structures, particularly with respect to taxation and corporations law. We consider and address those challenges and opportunities from the very start of our engagement, with appropriate commercial sensitivity. By working closely with allied professionals, including forensic and taxation accountants, commercial counsel, financial advisers and valuers, we optimize outcomes for our clients and their families.
If property is held or there are resources outside of Australia, we are alert to and work with international family lawyers to ensure the implications of any settlement under Australian law are considered. We also act for internationally based clients with property in Australia.
Taussig Cherrie Fildes is often engaged where a third party has a financial interest or some other form of involvement in a family law matter. For example, where a business is held by parties to a relationship and a third party entity or individual. When we act for a third party, we work to ensure that their commercial interests and property are protected. This can include in proceedings before the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia where the third party has been or needs to be joined.
