Head of chambers
Mr Milton Grundy
Chambers specialises exclusively in revenue law. Members of chambers advise on all areas of tax law and litigate in tax cases both for and, more often, against HM Revenue and Customs. Despite our recent expansions we retain the atmosphere of a small and friendly set.
Candidates should have a combination of strong academics and commercial awareness. This reflects the nature of our work. Tax barristers need the ability to conduct thorough research in difficult areas of law and then form judgments on how that law applies to the facts before them. The law must be then applied to find solutions in the real world which will appeal to both clients and judges.
Chambers encourages junior tenants to build their own practices from the outset and candidates should have the drive and determination to succeed in establishing a practice using the opportunities provided by a leading set of chambers.
Chambers offers 12 month pupillages. The deadline for applications for pupillage commencing 1 October 2008 is 30 April 2007. Applications are by CV and covering letter, ideally handwritten, to Michael Thomas.
We run an assessed mini-pupillage programme and, although we would stress it is not essential, would-be pupils are encouraged to apply for this, ideally the summer before applying for pupillage. We particularly welcome applications from those who have not studied tax but who think it might appeal to them. Applications are by CV and covering letter, preferably handwritten, to Marika Lemos.
Chambers offers an award is £24,000 per year.
