In April 2018 Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland was joined by Anna Derdak, attorney at law and tax adviser. She assumed the position of head of the law firm’s tax practice. She will be also a member of the M&A team.

Anna specializes in providing tax advice to Polish and foreign businesses, mainly on VAT and corporate income tax. She conducts tax reviews and due diligence. She represents clients in tax proceedings and administrative court proceedings. She also advises in the area of white-collar crime, particularly VAT carousel schemes, where she helps clients avoid unwitting involvement in tax fraud. Anna has over a decade of experience providing legal advice to business.

Before joining Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland she gained experience at leading international law firms and at one of the Big Four accounting firms. She works for leading companies from the real estate sector, assisting them in optimizing the property acquisition process. She advises enterprises operating in special economic zones or planning to take up such activity or amend their zone operating permit. She has an extensive practice carrying out due diligence projects, whether connected with M&A or designed to limit tax risks in the client’s operations. She supports clients in selecting the most advantageous business models. Anna is the author of numerous legal publications and has appeared at many conferences and workshops.

She is a doctoral student at the Faculty of Law and Administration at the University of Warsaw, where her research topic is fiscal offences.

“I am pleased that our firm has been joined by such an experienced specialist, who will provide ongoing support for our rapidly growing M&A practice,” said Ewa Szlachetka, partner in charge of the M&A team and the banking and finance team at Wierzbowski Eversheds Sutherland. “Anna will face many challenges, including advising on some of the largest transactions involving the Polish State Treasury, such as the project of creating the Polish Aviation Group, which our law firm is involved in, as well as mid-cap transactions carried out by Eversheds Sutherland and on the local market. This is an area where we see a need to provide professional tax law support for deals for financial investors as well as advice for family firms who decide to take on an investor as part of their succession strategy.”
