Gina Lazanas


Gina is amongst the mostly highly regarded practitioners in GST, a fact attested to by her appointment as the Chairperson of the Taxation Institute’s GST Subcommittee which liaises with the Government and the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) on the development of the GST law.

Before joining Baker & McKenzie as a partner, Gina was a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers and before that at Firmstone & Feil.

Gina’s extensive experience with the old sales tax, where litigation was a common way of resolving disputes with the ATO, has translated well into the GST environment and Gina has found herself at the forefront of a number of complex cases that are testing the limits of the GST.

Gina is a graduate of the University of Sydney and has been awarded a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Laws.
