We listen to our clients to understand their needs and follow through to ensure that we respond effectively and efficiently. We want to develop strong client relationships.

In October 2015 we inaugurated a strategic cooperation with tax attorney Alexandros Karakitis and now our practice areas include also tax consulting and litigation. Thereby, we are in position to offer the experience of integrated legal and tax services. Because we know that in today’s challenging world effective tax risk management is more important than ever, we have equipped ourselves with the right mix of skills to support you and help you ensure that your operating model remains aligned with the transforming tax landscape.
Moreover, we maintain a long lasting relationship with top ranking law firms and business advisors in the U.S.A, the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Belgium; we know well the markets and the regulatory environment of Bulgaria and Albania and have ties with local advisors. Thus, we are well placed to advise you, in collaboration with local firms, in the proper planning and implementation of any outbound investment or commercial collaboration plan in any of these countries.
Our service models vary, considering the different needs and may involve ad-hoc legal and tax advice or us to team up with the in-house counsel or tax/finance director during the design or implementation of complex transactions or undertake a specific project management or run a corporate, tax or court procedure. Given the variety of needs and clientele, we may determine our legal fees either based on time spent and complexity of the project or link them with the value and outcome of the case or apply a combination and after agreeing with the client upfront the fee structure and time of billing.
