James Quarmby

Spear's Review

Stephenson Harwood’s head of private client has always been a cerebral and outspoken practitioner in the field, He remains dauntless in defending HNWs and diligently helps his clients navigate the Revenue’s traps. One peer commends his technical excellence, ‘which shines through’, and admires his ability to ‘dissect difficult subjects into a more comprehensible format’.

Working with the firm’s offices in Singapore, Paris, Hong Kong and Dubai, Quarmby’s practice is decidedly international and covers a wide-ranging brief across taxation, residency and domicile matters.

He is one of the most prominent tax lawyers in the UK, partly thanks to a string of media appearances, including a famous defence of David Cameron’s offshore funds in a live argument with John Humphrys.
