Eversheds appoints Giles Salmond to lead VAT and indirect taxes practice in London

Eversheds has appointed Giles Salmond, an indirect tax litigation director at Deloitte, as a partner in its London tax team, where he will lead the VAT disputes and indirect taxes practice.

An indirect tax litigation specialist, Salmond has represented a wide variety of companies across all sectors including multinationals and UK plcs.

After being called to the Bar, Salmond practised for six years at the Solicitor’s Office for HM Customs & Excise where he undertook complex prosecution work and latterly civil VAT and customs duty litigation, including many appearances before the VAT and Duties Tribunals.

Salmond then joined Garretts, the law firm associated with Andersen, before transitioning to Andersen and then Deloitte in 2002, where he became a director in 2006.

A highly experienced litigator, Salmond has a significant profile in the market, having acted in a large number of cases both before the UK courts and tribunals and the European Court of Justice (ECJ).

His wealth of experience includes appearing as an advocate before the ECJ in a complex customs valuation case relating to the EU’s international agreements on trade (GATT and WTO).
