    Eversheds Sutherland Russia is delighted to announce the arrival of Andrey Grachev as the new Head of Tax Practice, along with his team.

    Andrey Grachev joins Eversheds Sutherland Russia from KPMG Russia and CIS, where he was the Director of Tax and Legal Department. Andrey has broad experience in different tax matters, including tax consulting on domestic and international tax structures, tax litigation and dispute resolution, tax due diligence, and assessment of tax implications of various transactions. A valuable part of his experience is tax mediation and ongoing communication with tax authorities concerning tax methodology issues, as well as preparing tax law amendments and consulting clients on the peculiarities of the legislative process in Russia. Andrey is a member in the Expert Council of Tax and Budget Committee of the Russian State Duma. Andrey's business sector experience has been focused on transport, IT retail and manufacturing.

    International Tax Review has recognized Andrey as a Tax Controversy Leader in Russia from 2015 to 2017. Many of the projects of Andrey’s team were highly reviewed by Legal 500 and other rankings.

    Victoria Goldman, Managing Partner of Eversheds Sutherland Russia, commented: “I am very happy to welcome Andrey, the new Head of Tax Practice, and his team. The further development of our tax practice is one of the steps in our firm’s growth strategy, which is aimed at providing full scope services for our clients. Andrey has a wealth of experience with a wide range of Russian and multinational tax assignments across various industries, negotiations with tax authorities, and successfully litigated matters. He has also participated in preparing draft laws and actively collaborates with the Russian Government and Parliament. All of this will ensure that we continue to support our clients with their significant tax activities. I welcome the new team to our family and wish them good luck. No doubt, together we will contribute even more to the firm’s ambitious development strategy.”

    Andrey Grachev added: “Together with my team, we are delighted to be a part of Eversheds Sutherland's development on the Russian market. I do highly appreciate the partners’ trust in my team and myself, and I believe that we will make a valuable contribution to the firm’s business in Russia. Due to the current economic and political situation, the calculation and payment of taxes is being greatly scrutinized by public authorities. The automatization and globalization of tax control measures could create additional risks for domestic and foreign companies in their transactions. It is exactly with this in mind that we are here at Eversheds Sutherland are attempting to eliminate and mitigate these risks, or, in the worst case scenario, defend our clients in tax disputes. We are extremely enthusiastic to support existing clients, as well as to obtain new opportunities.”
