Blackstone Chambers is a ‘well-run set‘ with ‘impressive individuals‘ that include the likes of Sam Grodzinski QC and Kieron Beal QC , who often appear in cases at the interface of tax and more mainstream public law. Grodzinski is ‘very thorough‘ and is regularly instructed both for and against HMRC; he is acting for Uber in the high profile HMRC v Uber case, in addition to the related claim for judicial review concerning Uber’s VAT liability. Beal is a ‘fantastic advocate‘ and is acting against HMRC in St George’s University v HMRC, a case concerning VAT in relation to educational services.
