Imran has a broad practice and has been involved in a range of domestic and international matters, acting for companies, private-clients and tax authorities. In addition to advisory work he is regularly involved in litigation. He is often instructed in high-profile and high-value matters, e.g. he has acted for Arron Banks in relation to whether the unavailability of tax relief for donations to UKIP constituted a breach of human rights and/or EU law, for Gallaher Ltd (part of the Japan Tobacco group) in relation to whether an "exit tax" on cross-border transfers of assets (for consideration in excess of £2bn) was a breach of EU law, for the Mauritius Revenue Authority in a transfer pricing matter where the sums at stake exceeded $100m., and for HMRC in the Icebreaker and Ingenious cases.
Imran was called to the Bar in 2008. In 2014 he co-founded Field Court Tax Chambers, having previously practised in another set of tax chambers. In 2022 he was appointed to the Attorney-General's A Panel.
