A senior lawyer, an advocate, the head of the “Tax Law” practice

The “Tax Law” practice has been successfully functioning from the moment of creation of the TOTUM law firm. The major part of tax law norms is formulated in an ambiguous way. Tax authorities and taxpayers have the same problem with understanding of the correct meaning. It is also difficult for a person without special legal education to find out all the nuances of the tax legislation, and its permanent changing does not make it simpler.

The lawyers of our company have rich work experience in the tax law sphere. They constantly improve their knowledge by taking part in professional events like International tax forum, Tax forum UBA. As a result, the accumulated experience and unusual approach to the cases and decisions let them resolve different situations of the company’s clients.

Due to the services that were provided by the professional team our clients were able to save their money, minimize possible risks, and also protect their business from the tax authorities’ illegal intervention into their activity.
