James provides a full range of advocacy services. For example he deals with tax prosecutions and disputes over collection.

That offending had stretched over a 10 year period.

In relation to collection disputes he acts for and against liquidators in relation to tax debts and debts generally.

James also provides advice relation to insurance matters with respect to negligence in the provision of taxation advice.

He also typically gets instructed to resolve matters with Inland Revenue often in the area of voluntary disclosures and the like.
