Content
Kristen Deards SC is described by one source as "a very good junior tax silk who is developing a formidable reputation and will be one of the leading tax advocates in the future" - an assessment echoed by several other interviewees, one of whom calls her "a rising star in the Sydney market." Instructing solicitors particularly appreciate the fact that she offers extensive experience of acting for the revenue authorities, as this gives her "valuable credibility with the ATO" when representing taxpayers in litigation or negotiation, and she is also described as "very confident on her feet and excellent in her written submissions."
