Patricia Williams is a partner in our Tax Practice at Bowmans. She has exceptional skills, being a Chartered Accountant (SA) and an admitted attorney (LLB).  Furthermore, she holds a MBA (cum laude) (GIBS), an H-Dip.

Patricia specialises in tax-related dispute resolution although her expertise extends to providing tax structuring advice within the context of mergers and acquisitions, including transactions in the private equity fund industry. Her accounting and other financial qualifications enable her to assist with financial modelling and pricing calculations in complex transactions. Patricia also has extensive experience in tax due diligences, where her knowledge of accountancy and law gives her a unique advantage.

Prior to joining Bowmans, Patricia built a solid reputation as a tax dispute specialist whilst she was heading up the Tax Dispute Resolution Practice in one of the leading law firms in Johannesburg.  She has also spent several years at Deloitte in their tax practice as well as a short stint with SARS, which gave her insight into their approach and tactics.

In view of the ever increasing tax disputes faced by our clients and the litigious attitude of SARS, Patricia adds a critical skill and support to our Tax Team.
