An employment tax specialist, Gordon started his tax career with HMRC spending 8 years as part of a special investigation unit before moving across the divide to PwC in 1997. He later moved into mid-tier, picking up a “Best Tax Team Award” in 2010 working alongside Chris Blundell at Mazars.

More recently, Gordon has acted as an in-house consultant for a number of businesses, thus gaining experience from all three sides of the HMRC-Advisor-Business triangle. He has worked across a number of sectors, including education, property, IT, retail, banking, public sector and not-for-profit and has extensive experience of handling negotiations with HMRC.

Outside the office, Gordon is a season-ticket holder at West Ham United and is deputy editor of the popular West Ham website kumb.com, in which capacity he is often invited on to podcasts, tv and radio programmes, usually when the producers cannot find anyone famous to talk to.
