About me

Having been educated in Estonia, Germany and Austria in international tax law, I have been advising clients on tax matters since 2004. As our firm’s “of counsel”, I have had the privilege of advising on the most exciting international and cross-border tax issues, including working on structures involving Asian, European and Latin-American countries. Continuous learning and understanding global trends in taxation is a key to efficient and successful advising.

Professional highlights

International background. I have worked in different jurisdictions and lived in several countries, which enables me to understand tax systems and business specifics on a national and global level alike.

Focus on direct taxation. Challenging cross-border cases involve advising a leading online service provider in determining the place of taxation for development functions and managers on payroll, negotiating and settling novel tax issues with the authorities, and bringing digital economy companies into accordance with existing tax systems and treaties to avoid double taxation.

Outspoken debater. Tax issues need candid debate, so I have been a regular speaker on the topic at events and in the professional media. This includes writing articles on local and international tax law for many renowned international publications and surveys.
