Practice Areas

Sergey specialises in all aspects of corporate tax including the tax aspects of mergers and acquisitions, reorganisations and reconstructions. He has a particular focus on the real estate sector, banking, oil & gas, automotive, trade and industrial sectors.

Main achievements:

Sergey’s practical experience includes successfully defending clients in several dozens of court disputes with the tax authorities, including before the Russian Supreme Commercial (‘Arbitration’) Court and the Russian Supreme Court. He has also provided support to major companies when they applied to the Russian Constitutional Court.

Projects include:

•successfully defending a client’s interests in a dispute with the tax inspectorate concerning the right to deduct VAT on restoration work. The Judicial Panel for Economic Disputes of the Russian Supreme Court accepted our arguments and upheld the client’s appeal in full. This allowed the practice of the lower courts to be changed in similar cases;

•defending an American bank in a case concerning the taxable income arising when VIP clients received incentives from banks. He managed to prove in the Presidium of the Russian Supreme Commercial Court that no taxable income arises, and, therefore, to create a precedent significant for the entire sector.
