Having spent nearly ten years in PricewaterhouseCoopers working in indirect tax consultancy and indirect tax litigation Frank has a broad experience of all areas of VAT and Customs Duty and joined Chambers in 2010 as a result of his specific interest in the European law aspects of indirect taxes.

The majority of his time is now spent advising multi-national clients across all areas including banking, telecoms, entertainment, sport, not-for-profit, transport, financial services and property. He is involved in litigation on both sides of the Irish Sea and is regularly un-led in cases where the sums in dispute are in excess of £10m.
