Two tax barristers become QCs in UK

Two tax barristers have become Queen’s Counsel in this year’s round of appointments in the UK.

Roger Thomas, a member of Pump Court Tax Chambers in London, has a practice that covers all areas of corporate and personal taxation, with a particular expertise in stamp duty land tax and value added tax.

David Southern is a member of Temple Tax Chambers in London. His practice focuses on most areas of business and personal tax. He regularly appears in a wide range of tax tribunals and courts up to and including the European Court of Justice.

A Queen's Counsel is described as a senior barrister who has practised for at least 10 years and has achieved excellence in advocacy. They are appointed by the queen on recommendation of the Lord Chancellor, the cabinet minister responsible for the UK justice system.
