Alexander explained to in-house counsels how to get ready for criminal proceedings in tax disputes. The lawyer told about peculiarities and statistics of criminal proceedings in 2015 and gave outlook for this year. Alexander also noted that the Verkhovna Rada was not ready for changes, therefore the Draft Law # 3448 was reported out for the review.
