Chris Davis, McInnes Wilson

Chris Davis has 20 years experience in the legal sphere. He is one of five Queensland Law Society Accredited Specialists in taxation law and is a Chartered Tax Adviser with The Tax Institute.

Chris started out in Sydney working for Ernst & Young Tax within their International and Media Group. In 1998 he joined Blake Dawson Waldron (now Ashurst), first in the Sydney office, and later as a member of the firm’s Brisbane corporate advisory group. Since that time he has also worked for two years in the London office of SJ Berwin (now King & Wood Mallesons) specialising in taxation matters affecting private equity funds and property funds.

Chris’ key focus is on transactions; he is a valued advisor in their understanding and characterisation. Once the intent of a transaction is understood, applying the law becomes more certain for the client and consistent with the commercial drivers.

Chris regularly seeks out opportunities to assist not-for-profit entities or non-governmental organisations as his way of giving back.
