Recognition

Whether a transaction is still being planned or is already in process, our team of knowledgeable, driven, sharp-minded tax lawyers in Lithuania is available for consultation, to help you choose the best strategies to prevent a tax dispute, or to strengthen your position when a dispute is inevitable.

Highest Quality

  • Specialised Team. Our team consists of two experts who work exclusively with tax issues and a wide range of specialists in other sectors, such as corporate law, white-collar crime, and fintech.
  • Internationally Recognized Competence. The expertise of our team has been recognised for many years now by international law-firm guides such as Legal 500, Tax Directors Handbook, ITR World Tax, and other leading legal directories.
  • Exceptional Knowledge. The highly qualified members of our team have studied at many of the top universities in the world, such as Georgetown University in the USA, Maastricht University and Radboud University in the Netherlands, and King’s College and the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, University of London in the UK.
  • The Whole Range of Taxation. We deal with all taxation issues, from domestic and cross-border direct taxation to VAT and customs duties.

Impressive Experience

  • Taxation of the Digital Economy. Digital business is the fastest-growing sector in the market, and we are deeply involved in this area. Our client portfolio in the digital sector consists of many start-up companies requiring tax structuring and advice, as well as established digital businesses facing tax disputes or who need to keep their tax practices up-to-date and aligned with the ever-evolving tax environment.
  • International Trade. Our team is the first choice of major commodity traders in the Baltic region – including most of the region’s biggest agro-businesses – who need assistance with tax matters.
  • International Tax Disputes. We interact closely with tax experts in other countries, putting us in the unique position of being able to provide comprehensive support in cross-border tax matters, whether settling a dispute or offering professional advice. All our expert consultants have the advantage of a foreign education and cooperate with internationally acclaimed tax academics, and all are equipped with the insight and experience necessary to provide an expert opinion on any tax-related issue.

Contribution to the Development of Tax Law

  • Creation of New Case Law. When required, we are able to persuade courts to create new case law in tax disputes. In several cases, we have been able to establish that Lithuania failed to properly implement the EU VAT directive, and thus that the court’s reliance on the EU legal act instead of Lithuanian legislation was in error.
  • Shaping Public Opinion. We are an active and contributing member of the Lithuanian Bar Association’s Tax Committee, which enables us to share our experience with other tax experts and shape the position of all tax lawyers in Lithuania on important tax issues.
  • Participating in the Legislative Process. We successfully act on behalf of our clients, voicing their concerns and suggesting improvements to the tax system through the Lithuanian Bar Association and direct proposals for legislation.

We work hard to fully understand the situations our clients find themselves in, their underlying thought processes, and their overall goals. This allows us to offer a tailored approach rather than a generic “quick fix,” and deliver solutions that will benefit our clients for many years to come.

Still, even the best advice can be ineffective if it is not implemented correctly. Our team of tax lawyers in Lithuania, therefore, strives to build long-term partnerships with clients, so they can provide consistent taxation support and monitoring.

Our services include:

  • Representation in tax disputes with the State Tax Inspectorate or Customs Authorities, including in negotiations
  • Representation in all types of tax investigations
  • Tax consultations
  • Tax planning
  • Tax due diligence
  • Support in matters of financial licensing and KYC and AML procedures
  • Support in corporate transactions and restructuring
  • Transfer-pricing documentation
