My name is Svitlana Moroz, I am a lawyer!
I'm lucky because my job is my hobby.
When I studied at school, I decided what my future profession would be.
Starting from the 7th grade I went to the tutor to study law.
The obsession to become a professional lawyer had its effect.
At the age of 14 I entered the Kyiv Financial and Economic College, after which I began my legal career as a social inspector at the Office of Social Welfare.
At the same time I studied at the University of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine to get my degree.
While studying at the University I was a paralegal at two different law firms in Kyiv. After the graduation I became a leading lawyer at the two enterprises with the average annual turnover of 150 million UAH.
At the age of 22 I independently provided legal support to an investment construction project with a worth of 110 million UAH.
My key expert areas are tax, customs and investment law.
I also specialize in developing a strategy for protection of business and defending the clients' interests in economic crimes.
Now the experience in providing legal support to different enterprises and understanding the business processes help me to support my clients in their challenges.
In disputes with the fiscal service or law enforcement bodies it's important to understand the specifics of the client's business, as well as its principles and mechanisms.
Such understanding helps me to stay two steps ahead of state agencies in litigation strategies.
In my professional activity it's also important to be creative and to find non-standard approaches to solving the clients' cases.
I'm not afraid of the possible conflicts with the state machinery.
As whereas there is a dispute about the tax, customs law or there is a persecution of the client suspected in committing an economic crime - the opponents are the state agencies.
For me every client's case is a matter of principles and personal interest to withstand and to win the struggle with the state system.
