A recognised market leading firm across several legal areas including, commercial litigation, corporate restructuring and insolvency, specialist director advice (both pre and post commencement of proceedings), shareholder disputes, tax disputes and banking & finance work.
Several lawyers with 3-7pqe are sought to sit within the Tax Advisory and Director Services Team
The firm offers advice to SMEs, directors and shareholders on various aspects of tax advisory work, currently primarily focused on commercial settlements with HMRC (including time to pay), advice and assistance in respect of tax avoidance schemes, Code 8 and Code 9 enquiries, investigations and meetings with HMRC and worldwide freezing orders.
These services are primarily offered to directors and SME businesses and the firm is looking to expand this offering seeking associates to grow this team extending to tax litigation including appeals against determinations and decisions, advisory aspects on tax investigations and fraud (from the defendant aspect) and/or any related criminal proceedings.
Applicants are not required to have experience of all contentious tax investigatory areas but would be expected to support a small team of solicitors offering tax dispute and resolution services which should extend to defences or appeals to the FTT and onward to the wider non-specialist Courts (where appropriate).
You will be supported by a commercial litigation team, a contentious insolvency team and the wider firm offering commercial debt recovery and insolvency (non-contentious and contentious) services to banks, Insolvency Practitioners, commercial finance institutions and HNWIs.
The successful candidate must have experience of tax advisory and litigation services and experience of fraud investigations and/or criminal proceedings would also be of interest, although the firm is currently a civil litigation law firm.
Lipson Lloyd Jones Ltd is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
