Recognition

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

Highest Quality

  • Specialised Team. Our tax solicitors team consists of two experts; each international tax attorney works exclusively with taxation 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 International Tax Lawyers 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 controversy 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 Dispute ResolutionWe interact closely with tax experts in other countries, putting us in the unique position of being able to provide comprehensive support in cross-border taxation matters, whether settling a dispute or offering professional advice. All our expert consultants have the advantage of 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 and tax litigation. 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 business tax lawyers in Lithuania on important taxation 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.

Acting as a corporate tax law firm, we provide tax legal help to various local Lithuanian businesses and ones established abroad. As an internationally recognized business law firm, we also work with international companies, providing consultations on matters related to Lithuanian jurisdiction and representing their interests.

When solving complex international cases, our corporate tax attorneys will collaborate with local solicitors abroad. Thus, here at Motieka & Audzevičius, we can offer a well-coordinated international tax lawyers team. 

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 international tax lawyers in Lithuania, therefore, strives to build long-term partnerships with clients, so they can provide consistent taxation support and monitoring.

Our tax legal 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

If you need help with any of the above-mentioned or other legal questions and situations, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our highly experienced business tax attorney or the whole team will provide professional advice or represent your business interests in tax dispute resolution or litigation processes.
