Poland

As local and international regulations become more prescriptive and enforcement gathers pace, dealing with the evolving tax landscape in a cross-border context presents you with a significant challenge. The number and complexity of tax investigations conducted by authorities is rapidly escalating and the need for tax adjustments is rising accordingly.

Our 350 tax lawyers worldwide are supported by strong technical tax intelligence teams that identify developments in tax law and policy affecting your business. This multi-disciplinary approach helps you develop robust structures that maximise tax effectiveness in alignment with your commercial strategy. Given the cross-border nature of today's tax issues, top corporates and financial institutions seek our advice in Central and Eastern Europe, given our global tax presence and our in-depth expertise in national tax laws.
