All tax laws are bound to have uncertainties and possibility of multiple interpretations. These differences may ultimately result into disagreement between taxpayer and department leading to rising of litigation. Handling litigation requires proficiency in subject and experience in dealing with authorities at various levels. We have been able to establish our credibility in handling litigation through ethical practice. Our area of practice in litigation handling is below:
Matter escalated beyond notice stage needs filing of appeal before quasi judicial or judicial authorities. These could be commissioner (appeals), Tribunal, revisionary authority, or before similar other authorities. Our litigation team understands the matter; prepare & file appeals considering the legal and factual aspects and represent the matter during hearing before authorities. Favourable result in large number of cases represented by firm speaks our success story.
The firm has team of able professionals who can assist attorney in representing the case before High Court and Supreme Court. We fill the gap between the counsel and client. We also have association with leading lawyers who can take up the case before higher courts.
In addition to traditional ways of handling litigation, the law has developed certain alternative dispute resolution mechanism which could be handy in many cases. These may be settlement commission, authority for advance ruling, arbitration etc. Each of these authorities could be approached under special circumstances, on fulfilment of certain conditions. We explore the possibility of such options, evaluate the feasibility in a given case and if find proper, represent the case before these authorities. The objective is to resolve the exposure to litigation by adopting best possible legal course of action.
We have motto of making indirect tax law simple in India and have been very actively engaged in making representation to government, CBEC, TRU and tax authorities to achieve this objective. We have been assisting industry and trade association to take up their case before governmental authorities to address the issue affecting members at large. Our pro-activeness in this has benefitted many industries by way of pulling out of trade regressive steps by government and extending the benefits which the industry deserves.
