Mr Clarke said: “I am excited to be joining Brown Butler as we share the same values. Tax dispute resolution is an increasingly valuable service for clients as HM Revenue and Customs is demonstrating a greater desire to resolve long-running tax disputes, rather than go through the courts.”

Brown Butler’s director of tax, Craig Hughes, added: “I am truly delighted that Paul is joining us. He is highly regarded in the Yorkshire business community.”
