Giang is a Chartered Accountant and a Chartered Tax Adviser. She started her career as a tax consultant before joining Meyer Vandenberg and working in the areas of corporate, commercial law and property law. She has been on secondment working in a large investment company and in a University. With her background in accounting and tax, Giang brings an awareness and understanding of tax issues in business transactions. She understands that clients want their transactions to go through in the most tax effective manner. Giang advises a broad range of clients in relation to their commercial transactions, specialising in tax advisory (income tax and stamp duty), structuring and restructuring, trust law, self-managed superannuation funds, acquisitions and mergers and property.

She has experience in drafting complex contracts (including tax sharing agreements and tax funding agreements), drafting trust deeds to suit the client’s purposes and provide the protection they are seeking (whether it be for asset protection or to provide assurance), she understands the tax concessions with the new changes to the employee share schemes, especially how they can benefit start-ups. She understands the dynamics and sensitivities in business succession planning that arise from the underlying family and business relationships and brings this understanding when advising clients. In drafting documentation, clients appreciate her approach to keep things simple but also have enough flexibility built in to meet their future needs as circumstances change.
