Tax Law and Tax Litigation
The annual Chambers Europe guide named INTELLECT among Russia's most successful legal firms in General Business Law (Band 1), particularly for its high level of representation in the courtroom, IP rights protection, legal support for IT projects, trademark registration, tax, realty, and enforcement (2014-2019). In 2018 Pravo.Ru-300 ranked INTELLECT-S among Russia's best law firms in tax.
INTELLECT's tax services are invariably in great demand with the firms' corporate clients of all sizes and segments.
Our tax lawyers are at home in courtrooms where they spend long hours battling day after day in defense of their clients’ interests, or shadowing tax officers conducting field audits. In the short spells of quite, they check clients’ tax compliance, restore tax records, mock tax audits and conduct due diligence detecting tax risk and assuring compliance, and advise on rectifying errors and omissions which threaten eventual tax problems and overtaxing. We also consult on tax risks in the implementation of investment projects in Russia, and review tax optimization structures, including those involving offshore jurisdictions, for legality, risks and compliance.
