After qualifying as a lawyer, O'Toole established Aston Court Chambers, a firm that specialises in offshore tax avoidance schemes.[3] He has described himself as a "tax alchemist".[1]

In 2016, a tax tribunal sitting at the Royal Courts of Justice in London described his firm Aston Court Chambers as one "whose attitude and operation might fairly be described as unprofessional" in a case relating to a retired businessman who transferred over £2m into a scheme that O'Toole and his firm had advised upon.[4]

O'Toole, who now lives in the Seychelles, is the investment adviser to a Mauritian company that owns his mansion in Northumberland.[1][5]
