Morag Ofili

Description

Spear's Review

Morag Ofili became a senior associate in Harbottle & Lewis’s private capital team in 2020, where she provides strategic advice to HNWs and businesses on how to identify and manage direct and indirect tax risks, advising on a range of tax matters.

Ofili, who joined the firm from Mishcon de Reya, regularly works on tax-related civil litigation, regularly acting for clients in actions arising from failed tax planning, including professional negligence, commercial fraud and judicial review claims as well as insolvency based disputes.

Ofili’s practice also includes wealth planning and structuring.

Adviser Profile

Ofili is an employed barrister involved in private client and tax litigation.

Ofili is known for taking on complex matters where the parties have become entrenched in their views and progress has stalled.

Ofili notes, “Our department has exploded in growth and success in recent years, mirroring that of our clients - a significant number of which are entrepreneurs in new (often tech) disrupter industries, clients associated with the creative industries, UHNWI and celebrities.”

Ofili is known for her strength technically, as well as her strategic and creative approach to litigation - which she credits to having spent time at the independent Bar as well as the Big Four and in-house.
