Bark&co

Traditionally thought of as a fraud and business crime firm, Bark&co has placed a considerable amount of focus in its tax litigation offering, with particular emphasis on VAT and excise issues. Acting primarily for individual clients, department head Giles Bark-Jones has been involved in civil matters and criminal tax fraud cases, and is also instructed by corporate clients in tribunal cases against HMRC. Laura Mackain-Bremner has been especially active in the area of contentious tax and fraud and Alex Nelson (a solicitor with four decades of experience) joined the team from Malletts Solicitors in 2016.
