The Legal 500 has now introduced a dedicated chapter on tax disputes in its comparative guide for the first time and Ulrika Bengtsson, advokat and counsel, has been selected to provide a clear picture of the Swedish tax litigation system.

Against the background of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EU has imposed a number of sanctions, which include a prohibition for companies within the EU to take certain measures in relation to Russia, as well as designated Russian people and entities on the sanction lists. Furthermore, a prohibition to circumvent the sanctions has been introduced in order to ensure that the sanctions are effective also in practice. When it comes to this circumvention prohibition, it is important to be aware of its wide interpretation, as established by the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Commission.
