Our specialist tax litigation team is described by The Legal 500 as standing out for its “wealth of experience and strong team of very impressive lawyers”.
We advise high net worth individuals, owner-managed businesses and large corporates on tax disputes with HMRC and tax-related commercial litigation, including claims against professional advisors in relation to negligent tax advice.
Our lawyers have acted in many of the recent high-profile cases brought before the Tax Tribunals, and the UK and European courts.
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.
