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.

The wide reach of the prohibition against circumventing EU sanctions

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.
