Practice Areas

For 20 years, Rupert Shiers has navigated complex discussions with Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), and tax litigation, for corporates, individuals, and pension funds. He is the leader of the firm's Tax Disputes team in the United Kingdom and Europe.

Rupert also provides technical knowledge in taxpayer rights and HMRC powers, tax statutory interpretation, tax public law, tax-related evidence and procedure. He serves as a valuable extension to in-house tax teams on a wide range of projects.

Rupert has worked full-time in HMRC disputes since before it became a real legal discipline, and is recognised as a leader in his field. He worked for many years with ex-HMRC officers and chartered tax advisers in a Big 4 environment before returning to international legal practice.
