Tax, tax disputes and litigation, financial law

Our tax law practice features legal advisors and tax advisors who have extensive experience and in-depth expertise as both contributors to and practitioners of tax law and public finance law.

We have represented our Clients in a number of landmark cases before tax, customs and enforcement authorities, the Polish Social Insurance Institution (ZUS), administrative courts, the Supreme Administrative Court, and the Constitutional Tribunal, which frequently led to changes in the settled jurisprudence of Polish courts. This includes our widely publicized work on the so-called Optimus case in which the court firmly rejected tax authorities’ practice of accusing taxpayers of “circumventing” tax law. Since then, we have successfully defended other Clients against the accusations of “abusive use of the law” by allegedly conducting their business in a way that resulted in their tax being lower than it would have been had they conducted their business “in the right way”, according to tax authorities.

Highly respected for its strong tax litigation standing, regularly receiving instructions for complex contentious matters.
