Matthew Sharp, Senior Associate, Dispute Resolution Lawyer, Fieldfisher

I am a senior associate in the Fieldfisher dispute resolution team, specialising in contentious tax matters.  I have broad experience advising on a range of direct and indirect taxation disputes. I work with all industry sectors, and with both companies and private individuals. I have a particular expertise advising on disputes relating to SDLT and Business Rates.  

In addition, I have extensive experience advising on complex and high value professional negligence claims relating to tax. I have a proven ability to provide clear concise advice that is understandable and intelligible to both - legal and non-legal audiences. I have been praised for providing  "grounded, nuanced, realistic" and "focussed" advice.

My experience in the financial services sector has involved me working with banks, building societies, debt purchasers and financial institutions. My experience also extends to the media sector; I have advised a number of clients in the media sector on contentious taxation issues.

I was honoured to be nominated and shortlisted as a finalist for the Legal Sector for Birmingham Young Professional of the Year 2017. 

In my spare time I enjoy walking (closely followed by my dog) and cycling. I love cooking and trying as many new foods as possible!
