Anthony Inglese – HM Revenue & Customs

Anthony Inglese

General counsel and solicitor

HM Revenue & Customs


Anthony Inglese oversees a large team of 400 staff, of which around half are lawyers. He has historically used private practice solicitors for litigation and commercial work but has reduced this considerably to cut costs over recent years. However, external legal spend at HM Revenue & Customs currently stands at around £20m, with any spend on law firms being first approved by the Attorney General.
