Hogan Lovells hires tax disputes partner Rupert Shiers
Hogan Lovells has announced that tax disputes partner Rupert Shiers is to join its London tax team on 24 June.
Shiers will lead the direct tax disputes practice and has been a partner since 2007, most recently at Herbert Smith Freehills.
He advises on the resolution of HMRC enquiries and investigations and has led tax litigation in the UK Tax Tribunal, English courts and European Court of Justice. Clients he has successfully advised include Philips and Legal & General.
Shiers also advises high-net-worth individuals and is an expert on the legislation and case law governing dealings with HMRC.
