We are leaders in the field of tax-related commercial litigation, bringing to bear our deep technical tax expertise with our vast experience and capability in commercial disputes.
We regularly act for clients in:
- Large group actions arising from failed tax investments, often including negligence, commercial fraud and misrepresentation claims
- Professional negligence actions against tax advisers whose advice falls below the reasonable standard of care
- Disputes between commercial parties as to tax liabilities and refunds arising in the supply chain (this arises most often in relation to VAT and environmental taxes such as landfill tax and aggregate levy)
- Tax deed/warranty disputes, such as disputes in respect of pre-completion accounts, tax refunds and tax assessments
