 In mcgrigors, tax litigation

McGrigors has promoted Rupert Shiers, a contentious tax specialist, to the partnership.

Rupert advises corporates and high net-worth individuals on difficult HMRC enquiries and appeals to the tax tribunals and the Courts. He has a specialism in defending tax planning, particularly in cases HMRC argue that the planning is tax avoidance. He also advises clients on the impact of EU law on their UK tax position, including claims to HMRC or in the tax tribunals, references to the European Court of Justice, and EU-based claims in the English High Court.

Rupert’s entry into the partnership brings the number of partners in the tax litigation team to three. The team is part of the 40 strong Risk Advisory Solutions national business group based in London and headed up by James Bullock. Other recent appointments in this group include Maria Piggin, who joined in January from niche white collar crime firm Bark & Co to specialise in corporate crime matters.
Partner and head of Risk Advisory Solutions, James Bullock, said: “These are great times for the tax litigation team. The team is bigger than ever, continuing to expand and working on some exciting, cutting edge issues, which has all led to the team once again being recognised by the industry in which we operate.”
