Chambers' comments:

London Ranking: Tier 5

The Firm: Clients describe this firm as commercial, responsive and hard-working. The team is especially strong on private equity transactional work, and recently advised New York-based private equity firm KPS Capital Partners on its acquisition of Waterford Wedgwood. The tax group also offers specialist expertise in corporate restructuring, banking and finance, investment funds and M&A.

Key Individuals: European corporate tax head Ian Taplin is recommended for his "wide-ranging experience and practical advice." John Baldry's practice includes private equity-led M&A transactions, reorganisations and funds formation work. He draws praise from clients for his attentive service and strong business perspective. Jane Scobie is particularly recommended for her cross-border capabilities and has strong experience of advising on corporate restructurings.
