Who we are

Launched in 2009 Balazs Lazanas and Welch (BLW) is a boutique tax firm nestled in the heart of Sydney’s CBD. The brainchild of three former partners from Baker Mckenzie, BLW provides specialist tax advice across the expanse of tax laws. Our unique combination of skills and experience, gleaned from time at the Big Four accounting firms and top-tier global law firms, has earned BLW a reputation for excellence in our field.

We’re known for navigating the formidable entanglement of tax law for our clients with specialist solutions to even the most convoluted problems.

Principals John Balazs and Gina Lazanas are renowned as some of Australia’s best tax lawyers, listed year after year on the Financial Review’s “Australia’s Best Lawyers and Lawyers of the Year” list and Doyles “Leading Tax Lawyers” list.
