The period since our Chambers were established in 1965 has seen the expansion of the tax base, the introduction, with some frequency, of new forms of direct and indirect taxation, and the growing impact of Europe.
New taxes and European law brought, and continue to bring, complication to the world of tax; and they create or increase the need for highly competent legal advice relating to fiscal problems.
The aim of all of us here is to meet that need.
Our ambition is to prevent tax problems from arising and to solve those which have arisen without litigation. But, if need be, we will fight for our clients in the Courts; and we have had experience of doing that successfully, not only in the United Kingdom, but also in Europe and in many Commonwealth or former Commonwealth jurisdictions.
We think of ourselves as a family; and we enjoy working together and the work that we do. We hope to convey our sense of enjoyment and our pleasure in helping others to all our clients: individuals, trusts, partnerships, business organisations and corporations, large or small.
