After studying law at the London School of Economics, David qualified as a tax lawyer in the City. Believing that he could do more outside the City walls, David moved to Harbottle & Lewis, a law firm specialising in technology, media and entertainment. He is Head of Corporate Tax and Head of Charities & Philanthropy at Harbottle & Lewis, advising not-for-profit organisations on all charity law issues and also providing philanthropic advice to individuals.
