The role of Deputy Director Personal Tax Litigation is a key one within Solicitor’s Office and Legal Services and the wider HMRC. The team conducts high profile and complex litigation across a range of direct taxes, litigating issues such as employment status, residence and domicile, and pension issues. Tackling tax avoidance is a key objective for HMRC and this team has a central role in litigating alleged avoidance measures involving Employee Benefit Trusts, Contractor Loans schemes and pension liberation schemes.

Recent successful challenges to tax avoidance schemes include the two Supreme Court cases of UBS & Deutsche Bank and Murray Group Holdings (the Rangers Football Club case).
