Old Square Tax Chambers is an elite set whose members are among the best regarded tax barristers in practice.

We provide independent advice on all areas of tax. We provide assistance in tax disputes of all types and can help taxpayers in all their dealings with HMRC. Members of chambers have appeared in tax litigation from the First-tier Tribunal to the Supreme Court and CJEU. Particular areas in which barristers at Old Square Tax Chambers excel include trusts and estate planning, employee taxation, foreign domiciliaries, corporate taxation, international taxation, VAT and SDLT.

If you wish to discuss instructing one of us or would like further information, our Senior Clerk Cliff Holland will be happy to help.

Applications for Third Six Pupillage

Old Square Tax Chambers is inviting applications for third six pupillage from candidates with experience in the commercial and/or chancery fields. The pupillage is offered with a view a tenancy at the end of the six months and will commence in October 2018.
Old Square Tax Chambers is a set specializing in revenue law and any applicant will ultimately be expected to develop their practice in this area. Prior experience is not necessary although a good grounding in general law and an interest revenue law is. Many of our existing tenants have come to Chambers without any prior experience in tax and have gone on to establish themselves in the area.
As we are recruiting from those without prior revenue law experience, the pupillage will largely be non-practicing. As a consequence it comes with an award of £25,000. Furthermore, if the successful applicant is offered tenancy, Chambers will guarantee earnings of £50,000 for the first year of practice.
Applications should be in writing enclosing a short introductory letter and curriculum vitae to: Rory Mullan at admissions@15oldsquare.co.uk
The closing date for applications for third six pupillage is 16th July 2018 at 4.00pm.
