Chambers Guide says about Emma Chamberlain:
An exceptionally well-known and highly respected tax junior with an impressive reputation for her handling of tax and trust advice. She is a particularly fine choice of counsel for offshore matters and is regularly trusted by high net worth individuals. Such is her standing that she was recently awarded an OBE for ‘services to government tax policy’. “The go-to person for technical advice on trusts and tax” and “simply the best in the private client sector.” “When positions are uncertain she has the ability to sit down and get matters agreed with the revenue. She really goes in to bat for you.” (2020)
“Her particular expertise and skill is in the Inheritance Tax field and in non-domicile tax, which she is excellent at.” “She has a real insight into how the Revenue think and so she brings a really interesting and helpful take on things. She is not an aggressive advocate, but instead she is collaborative, which is winning for the judges because they will listen.” (2019)
. . . “Remains the go-to person at the private client tax Bar. She has the ear of the HMRC and, where other barristers merely assert their opinion, she tells you what HMRC’s view really is.” “She is one of the best in the UK. She is very direct and you can really see the wood through the trees. She is very good at working through reams of complex detail and at co-ordinating all third parties, like lawyers and accountants, to work as a cohesive team.” (2018)
