Managing Director, Evans Dixon Law
MTax, JD, BCom
With extensive experience in tax, estate planning, SMSFs and private business, Vik was one of the founding members of Evans Dixon Law (formerly Dixon Advisory Law) and now manages the private wealth legal team for Evans Dixon, supervising a national team of specialist lawyers.
His team is responsible for the delivery of legal advice in relation to estate planning, tax planning, superannuation, asset protection and restructuring, and developing private wealth legal strategies in response to changes in tax, superannuation and succession law.
According to Vik, who originally began his career at the Australian Tax Office, the integration of legal services into the financial services industry can offer significant benefits for clients.
“With expertise in tax, estate planning and superannuation, clients can receive holistic advice on issues that most lawyers provide in isolation of tax consideration. That’s the beauty of the business model we offer.”
Vik is also the co-author of two leading text books on testamentary trusts and advanced estate planning strategies, and is a former estate planning manager at NAB Private Wealth. He was most recently Managing Director at a multi-city law firm and during his time there was listed as a finalist in numerous awards including Tax Partner of the Year for Lawyers Weekly (2018) and Law Firm Leader of the Year for the Australasian Law Awards in 2017 and 2018 (for firms under 200 staff).
Vik has a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Wollongong, a Juris Doctor from Australian National University and a Masters in Tax from the University of Sydney. He is also a Fellow of the Tax Institute of Australia and a Certified Member of the Society for Trust and Estates Practitioners (TEP).
