Four WTS Global partner companies received awards too. WTS Germany won the German Transfer Pricing Firm of the Year title for the second time, and similarly to last year, ICON, the Austrian partner and KM Partners / WTS Consulting in Ukraine were also ranked among the leading tax adviser companies. Sorainen, WTS Global’s exclusive partner in Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, received the title of best tax adviser firm in the Baltic region. One case of the Group’s Italian partner Studio Biscozzi Nobili was highlighted by the jury in the European Impact Cases category.
The European Tax Awards have taken place every year since 2005, organised by the International Tax Review in order to recognise the leading international tax firms of Europe. The nominees are assessed according to their size, innovation and complexity based on which they are ranked depending on the country and line of business. This year the award ceremony was held in London on 16 May.
