Goltsblat BLP is nominated for European Tax Awards 2015


Goltsblat BLP, the Russian practice of the leading international law firm Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP), has been nominated for European Tax Awards 2015 as Russia Tax Firm of the Year (2015).

European Tax Awards take place annually since 2005 and seek to recognize the leading international tax professionals from around Europe. This award is hosted by International Tax Review, a premium edition which gives tax professionals in industry, government, private sector and research a multimedia source of intelligence on the key areas of tax.

Evgeny Timofeev, Partner, Head of Russian/CIS Tax Practice pointed out: "We expected no less. Despite turbulent times in the Russian economy, we are not only retaining our client base but we are also continuing to gain market share due to the high quality of client service we provide and our ability to add real value, due to our approach based on our leadership experience. As 2014 was legislatively dominated by the drafting of de-offshorisation laws, our International Tax was there not only to check and try to influence the drafts, but also to prepare our Russian clients for the effects of the change. As soon as the laws were adopted, we managed to complete a number of maverick restructurings within the just a few weeks left before the law came into effect".
