The law firm PwC Legal will be joined by Michał Rams and Stanisław Żemojtel, experts in criminal tax law and economic law. Michał Rams will head up the White Collar Crime team, while Stanisław Żemojtel will lead the Commercial & Regulatory Litigation team.
In view of the growing number of criminal tax disputes and the increasing pressure on entrepreneurs by tax authorities, the skills of both new lawyers are vital for PwC Legal to be able to provide its clients with comprehensive support in the most sensitive areas. Issues such as tax transparency or minimising the risk of personal sanctions for company managers will certainly gain in importance.

Michał has many years of experience in conducting complex criminal (including criminal tax) proceedings in relation to crimes involving extortion and depletion of public-law revenues obtained from VAT, CIT and PIT.

He is the author of academic publications in the field of substantive and procedural criminal law.
