Peter Cussons and James Bullock

It is with deep sadness that I write with news that Peter Cussons of PwC and James Bullock of Pinsent Masons have passed away in recent days.

Peter and James were both well known figures in the tax world and leading experts in their respective fields.  I had the great pleasure of working with them as valued contributors to this journal and members of my Editorial Board.

Peter retired from PwC in the summer, but continued to consult for the firm. Among his many accomplishments, he was instrumental in various direct tax infringement proceedings by the European Commission; he chaired the Large Business and International Committee of the ICAEW Tax Faculty; and he was the only ‘big four’ partner on the CBI’s main tax committee.

James headed the litigation and compliance business at Pinsent Masons. He was a passionate and inspiring tax litigator. I always thought of him as indomitable and considered him a friend.

Both men were unfailingly generous with their time and they each helped me on numerous occasions. I extend my sincere condolences to their families, friends and colleagues. The tax profession has lost two of its leading lights. They will be greatly missed.
