The foremost international directories of tax firms, World Tax and World Transfer Pricing, have confirmed that Pepeliaev Group remains the leading law firm on the Russian market (Tier 1).

The researchers from World Tax set great store by a project which was conducted by Ksenia Litvinova, head of a tax practice group in the firm, for OOO Burovaya Kompaniya Eurasia. A team of lawyers represented the client in the tax dispute. The company was accused of allegedly damaging the environment with waste which remained after the client drilled boreholes.

Also making a big impression on the experts from World Tax was a project conducted by Pepeliaev Group’s senior partner Rustem Ahmetshin in cooperation with a team of lawyers that advised energy company Gazprom PJSC. The corporate tax project concerned de-offshorisation issues related to compliance with statutory tax requirements. Within the framework of the project, we developed a methodology for calculating the profit of controlled foreign companies.
