advises on the tax aspects of private and public mergers, acquisitions, disposals and joint ventures and on business and transaction structuring (including transfer pricing in all its aspects) more generally. He also advises many banks, insurance companies, hedge funds and others in the financial services sector in a wide range of areas.
In recent years, Steve has been heavily involved in several large scale interventions under HMRC’s high risk corporates programme and in many in-depth tax investigations of specific domestic or international issues including transfer pricing in particular. He thus has considerable experience of negotiating and dealing with HMRC at all levels.
A large part of Steve’s practice involves advising non-UK multinationals (particularly those based elsewhere in Europe and in the US) on cross-border transactions and tax issues of various types. In that area of his practice, he works closely with other leading international tax advisers around the world.
Being described as “a leader in the tax world” (Chambers, 2021), Steve has consistently been ranked at the top in leading directories, including as a Senior Statesperson for corporate tax in Chambers for the last couple of years.
Joined Slaughter and May in 1973. Partner since 1982.
Steve is co-editor of the Transfer Pricing Law Review and contributing editor of the Chambers Global Practice Guide on Corporate Tax, and a patron of the Bridge the Gap campaign of TaxAid and Tax Help for Older People.
