Hartley Foster is recognised as one of the UK’s leading contentious tax practitioners.

Hartley has specialised in contentious tax matters for over thirteen years and has acted on over 40 reported tax cases, including three House of Lords cases and three references to the ECJ. He focuses on the technical and tactical management of enquiries by HMRC; and he uses his litigious experience to negotiate with and pressurise HMRC into conceding issues and agreeing settlements. His experience also includes setting up and managing Group Litigation Orders and devising EU law based tax planning structures.

Hartley is a regular conference speaker and contributor to a number of publications; he writes and speaks particularly on the tax appeals system and international tax law. He is regularly asked by the media to comment on tax matters. His comments have been published in many newspapers, including the Financial Times, Guardian, Independent, International Herald Tribune, Mail on Sunday, Observer, Telegraph, Times, as well as in a number of trade publications, including Accountancy Age, European Lawyer, The Lawyer, Legal Week, and the New Law Journal.

Hartley has had interviews broadcast on the BBC, BBC Radio 4, Bloomberg, CNN, and CNBC Europe.

He regularly writes in tax periodicals, particularly Tax Journal (for which he has written over 30 articles).
