Contentious Tax

We advise clients in relation to this hostile and complex area of law.

Where the circumstances of a case require it, our extensive litigation experience enables us to conduct cases in the tax tribunals and in the courts.

Our aim is always to achieve the most favourable outcome for our clients. This requires a clear understanding of the underlying substantive tax issues as well as a practical understanding of both HMRC’s handling of disputes and tax litigation procedures.

We work closely with specialist counsel to ensure the most cost-effective and strategic advice is presented. Our approach ensures that many cases are resolved by negotiated settlement, to our clients’ satisfaction. Our team is also highly skilled in advising clients involved in a range of alternative dispute resolution medium.

Notable cases include:

  • Acting for a commodities trading company in claim against HMRC
  • Acting for an individual in dispute with HMRC regarding Capital Gains Taxation
