Chambers & Partners 2021 - Contentious Tax
Jake Landman has worked on this matter throughout his training and development and as he has progressed in the firm. He has operated a little above whatever I would have expected at whatever grade he has been at. He is incredibly knowledgeable about all of the case law that this claim depends on. He demonstrates confidence and ability when bringing points to the table regardless of who is in the room, and that is really good to see. Jake can be in front of a conference, for example with ten people and a QC there of some standing, and he will not think twice about raising a particular point; he does that in a very professional manner.
