Corporate Tax Lawyer – prestigious international firm

Our client is a large and prestigious London-headquartered international law firm.

The firm’s multi-jurisdictional team of tax Lawyers advises many of the world’s pre-eminent companies, organisations, and investment banks on a wide range of direct and indirect tax issues in contentious and non-contentious environments. The firm’s ability to draw upon the expertise of tax Lawyers across their international network means they are able to offer their clients a truly global tax offering, sourcing and applying foreign tax advice to transactions and disputes as required.

Expertise has developed around the firm’s core sectors, and their deep understanding of the legal and regulatory issues in these sectors puts the team in the best position to provide commercial and cost effective solutions to clients.

The team in London is regularly recognised for the breadth and depth of skill and capability in the fields of VAT, stamp duty, stamp duty land tax and stamp duty reserve tax. They are one of the few City firms who regularly advise on the Aggregates Levy, Air Passenger Duty, Carbon reduction commitment/energy efficiency scheme, Climate Change Levy, Customs Duty, Insurance Premium Tax, Landfill Tax, and the new Community Infrastructure Levy in contentious and non-contentious environments.

Due to client demand for the team’s expertise, they are now looking to recruit at least one mid-level Associate.

While this is primarily a non-contentious role, if the successful applicant was interested there would be an opportunity for them to take on a mixed contentious/non-contentious workload.

In order to be considered for this superb role, you will have:

  • A strong academic background and qualification as a Solicitor in England & Wales (although commonwealth-qualified candidates will be considered, you must have gained London experience already for this opportunity);
  • Probably 2-4 years’ post-qualification experience of corporate tax (including international tax issues), gained in a law firm, accounting firm or in-house;
  • In addition to transactional support and advisory tax work, willingness and experience of tax controversy would be beneficial;
  • Strong foundational legal skills, including drafting, negotiation and project management skills; people management and business development skills; and
  • You will also need to be a bright self-starter looking for a challenge, with excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate with individuals at all levels.

This position is a rare opportunity to grow your career at a very highly regarded firm.
