Devereux Chamber has expanded the tax practice through the addition of Jolyon Maugham who joins the set from 11 New Square.
The set said it had seen an increased demand for contentious tax advice driven by a rise in the number of HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) investigations.
Tax head Timothy Brennan QC commented: “Contentious tax is an increasingly hot topic, and HMRC has become much more pro-active in litigating cases and particularly in tackling aggressive tax avoidance.”
Maugham, who was called to the bar in 1997, has particular expertise in employment taxation, ‘scheme’ transactions, intangible property, legitimate expectation, and film financing. Earlier this year he was appointed by the Attorney-General directly onto the “A” panel of junior counsel.
Brennan added: “Jolyon is one of the most able and experienced contentious tax specialists at the junior bar. He is an ideal recruit to add at a senior level to our tax litigation specialists.”
