Judicial Appointment – James Austen
We are delighted that James Austen, a Senior Associate in our Private Client department, has been appointed as a Judge of the First-tier Tribunal, assigned to the Tax Chamber, where he will sit on a part-time basis.
As a Tribunal judge, James will hear and determine appeals against decisions by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) in respect of both direct and indirect taxes.
James will combine his judicial office with his practice at the firm, where he specialises in tax and trust advice to individuals and trustees – particularly those with rural estates and business interests. James looks forward to using his experience of private practice in his judicial work and vice versa; his work at the Tribunal will complement and enhance the service we provide to our clients.
We wish to congratulate James on his appointment.
