Private Eye has published an article in which it alleges that Des Hudson, the big-earning chief executive of the Law Society, has used three controversial tax schemes…

The piece — a photo of which is embedded below — also notes Hudson’s sideline as chairman of the Taxation Disciplinary Board and highlights a Law Society Gazette article from last month which criticises the government’s plans to clamp down on LLP membership to avoid tax. Hudson sits on the editorial board of the Law Society Gazette.
