Our specialist Tax Litigation and Resolution team is praised by The Legal 500 for "its wealth of experience and strong team of very impressive lawyers".

We advise high net worth individuals, owner-managed businesses, trusts and large corporates on tax disputes with HMRC, from enquiry stage through to appeals before the tax tribunals and courts.

We also advise on commercial disputes arising out of tax issues, including claims against professional advisers in relation to negligent tax advice and financial institutions involved in structured planning.

Why choose us?

Our team of specialists comprises tax litigation solicitors and barristers, and former HMRC inspectors. They have acted in many high-profile cases brought before the tax tribunals, and the UK and European courts. They have also advised in many complex enquiries and confidential settlements with HMRC. Our experience in this area includes complex Research & Development (R&D) tax relief claims, fraud enquiries under Code of Practice 8 (COP8) and 9 (COP9) and portfolio settlements for individuals and corporates.

We have unrivalled experience in putting together innovative costs arrangements. The use of third party funding, after-the-event insurance and risk-sharing fee agreements enables our clients to manage risk and litigate from a position of financial strength.

Our advice goes beyond legal analysis to address the wider practical, commercial and strategic issues, ensuring our clients achieve the best possible outcome.
