Douglas Keel

| Call 1997

Profile: Overview

Douglas was called to the Bar in 1997, having previously been a tax partner with Price Waterhouse specialising in international tax planning and now has over 40 years’ experience both in tax planning and dispute resolution.


Experience and Expertise

His practice encompasses the whole range of UK direct and indirect taxes for companies and individuals as well as the interaction with overseas jurisdictions. He is used to working with other counsel on matters where a multidisciplinary approach is necessary and appropriate, and is regularly instructed by solicitors, accountants and other professionals as well as accepting Public Access instructions.

The changing tax landscape and HMRC’s focus on tax avoidance has meant that his practice deals primarily with disputed transactions which are already under investigation and where litigation is probable although not inevitable. He takes a holistic approach and favours mediation to litigation where appropriate.

Among areas in which he has expertise are:



MA (Oxon) FCA



He is a member of the Chancery Bar Association, the Revenue Bar Association and the International Fiscal Association
