Pump Court Tax Chambers is the 'number one set for tax in terms of strength in depth, areas of specialism, and quality of counsel', and has 'many stars and excellent, commercial clerks who manage client relationships well'. Members are consistently involved in high-profile group litigations, most recently including FII GLO, a test case challenging the UK’s legislation on the taxation of dividends paid into the UK by foreign subsidiaries of UK companies (David Ewart QC and Rupert Baldry QC acted for HMRC with Jonathan Bremner QC on the other side); and MODS Group Litigation, a challenge to the UK’s Corporate Manufactured Overseas Dividend Scheme, where Baldry QC was instructed by the Revenue. In 2019, David Yates QC and James Rivett QC took silk, adding to an already strong selection of Queen's Counsel in chambers, including David Milne QC, who has 'a very good rapport with judges', and 'class-act' Kevin Prosser QC. The 'enormously impressive' Zizhen Yang is a junior of note, currently representing the taxpayer in its landfill tax appeal before the Upper Tier Tax Tribunal in Devon Waste Management Ltd and Biffa v HMRC.
