BLW (who after all can pronounce “Welch”, let alone spell it?) is a specialist tax firm started by three former tax partners of Baker & McKenzie, John Balazs, Gina Lazanas and Paul Welch.

With over 50 years’ combined experience as tax advisers in Australia and Europe, the principals of BLW believe that they can offer a more effective and efficient service to their clients in a small firm environment.

The firm naturally focuses on income tax, GST, dispute resolution and trusts and estates. An advantage that the principals of BLW bring is an extensive knowledge of international tax. As partners of major accounting firms before joining Baker & McKenzie, their experience in those firms and with Baker & McKenzie means that John and Gina are especially well placed to advise on multi-jurisdictional matters.
