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.
