Having successfully worked with Russian tax authorities since 1992, our accountants have gained extensive practical experience, which, combined with our tax lawyers’ in-depth knowledge of the law, makes our tax advice one of the best on the market.

Our tax lawyers participate in close co-operation with our outsourcing departments in tax audits, prepare all types of tax consultancy, tax refund filings as well as devise optimization structures. Our tax litigators represent clients in all phases of tax disputes and successfully defend clients in major disputes.

As one of the many cases won by our tax lawyers, we can cite, for instance, a leading European company operating in the property and construction industry involved in a VAT-related dispute with tax authorities. Our tax litigators represented this client in court which awarded a full VAT refund of RUB 200 million. This client then went on requesting further consultation on taxation matters.

Another example of the successful work done by our tax lawyers is the planning and implementation of a new corporate structure (reorganisation) for an international company with 5 production locations in Russia and thousands of employees. Our tax lawyers played a major role in the planning and implementation stages of this project.
