The IR35 Experts

Brookson Legal Services was formed in 2000, following the introduction of the IR35 tax legislation.  We are a mix of solicitors and paralegals, some of whom have been with the business for over a decade.  We understand and advise on all aspects of flexible working.  Most importantly, we are IR35 experts and human beings; we don’t rely on online tools to form a view, and we give firm, impartial advice.

Our customers come from all levels of the flexible working supply chain – contractors, agencies and hirers.  Since the changes to the IR35 legislation in the Public Sector in 2017, and following confirmation that similar changes will be introduced into the Private Sector in 2020, we have been working with a rapidly-growing number of hirers to help them understand their obligations and to advise them on how they can mitigate risk, whilst maintaining all the benefits that a well-managed flexible workforce can bring to a business.

Brookson Legal Services is the only SRA regulated law firm that focuses on IR35

Brookson Legal Services has advised on IR35 since its introduction in April 2000.  We advise hirers, agencies and contractors on the law and carry out thousands of employment status assessments each year.

Every member of the Brookson Legal Services team is an IR35 expert, some with over a decade’s experience, and we have team members who have sat on HMRC’s IR35 forum.

We are the only law firm, regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, that spends most of its time advising on IR35.

As a regulated law firm, our advice is backed by Professional Indemnity Insurance.
