A vivid discussion was held in the legal press with the participation of the Partner of LF “Sofiya” O.Polivodskyy

      The discussion started with the issue of correlation between tax law and civil law and invalidating of commercial contracts by the tax authorities. The reason for the debate was the publication of Arthur Nonko and Anton Polyanichko in the  "Legal newspaper"  13 (227) on March, 29. O. Polivodskyy commented on this article briefly and outlined his vision  of the issue. Arthur Nonko soon wrote a new publication in "Legal Newspaper”  15 (278) on April, 12 this year and criticized the position expressed by O.Polivodskyy. He published his arguments in the newspaper № 18-19 (280) on May 10, 2011 and the discussion was joined by other colleagues in the legal workshop. "In my opinion, this argument applies not only to professional niceties, but also the ideological positions of the lawyers", - said O. Polivodskyy.
