  1. I note that Canadian Prof. Arthur Cockfield “He is a senior research fellow at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia ” according to his bio http://arthurcockfield.com/biography/

    Prof. Cockfield wrote these papers re FATCA, and appeared before the Canadian Parliament to present against the imposition of FATCA on Canadians;

    Cockfield, Arthur J., FATCA and the Erosion of Canadian Taxpayer Privacy (April 1, 2014). Report to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, April 2014. Available at SSRN: http://ssrn.com/abstract=2433198

    – with Prof. Allison Christians (McGill U, Que. Canada)
    Christians, Allison and Cockfield, Arthur J., Submission to Finance Department on Implementation of FATCA in Canada (March 10, 2014). Fulltext vailable at SSRN: http://ssrn.com/abstract=2407264 or http://dx.doi.org/10.2139/ssrn.2407264

    Perhaps he might be of help, or something in his papers might also apply in principle to Australia – (ex. if your laws on privacy are similar)? I couldn’t find him in the Monash U directory, but he’s got an email at Queens U in Canada

    He also spoke to the media, critical of FATCA and US extraterritorial treatment of Canadians.
