Pump Court Tax Chambers


In order to meet the consistent high demand for our services, we are looking to recruit barristers to join this busy and friendly set.

Tenancy applications would be particularly welcome from juniors of 4 to 11 years in practice (after pupillage) who are able to demonstrate experience of tax on the advisory and/or litigation side. We are looking for excellent candidates either with a strong existing tax practice or the drive and ability to develop such a practice. This could include chancery or commercial practitioners with experience in tax.

Application letters along with a detailed CV should be sent to the Chair of Pupillage and Tenancy Committee, Richard Vallat QC (tenancy@pumptax.com). Please see our website (www.pumptax.com) for further details and policies.

If you would like an informal, confidential conversation in relation to Chambers please contact our Director of Clerking, Mark Rushton (mrushton@pumptax.com).

All applications will be processed in the strictest of confidence.
